Anna Kournikova has been announced as the new Biggest Loser trainer, but she's been getting some flack for it — mainly because she hasn't trained anyone before.
BUT, we say that isn't a huge issue for someone that has been trained and keeps in fantastic shape, also, here's what she has to say:
"I've always been criticized for being too beautiful, but I must have done something right. People have these preconceived notions about me, but I don't mind.
"When I was a competitive tennis player, I worked with the best nutritionists, coaches and sports psychologists. I was always being told what to do, but now I tell people what to do. It brought me back to the discipline and organization I had when I was a player, and you need that discipline to live a better, healthier life.
"I felt like a parent to a number of children who wanted to lose weight and get healthy. It was challenging, and it was new to all of us, but everyone realized that it wasn't rocket science. It takes a lot of hard work, but they made it work.
"I didn't want to do 'Biggest Loser' to be famous or be on a magazine cover, because I've already been through that I wanted to live and breathe exercise and nutrition. I wanted to play a role in helping people change their lives for the better."
We hear that!
We're actually really looking forward to seeing you at work, Anna. There's this feeling we have that you're going to be very good at this job!
Hope all goes well!
