Are You Doing The Wrong Workout For Your Body Type? A Biggest Loser Trainer Explains

Getting healthy—and staying healthy—is hard. And it can be frustrating if you’re going to spin class four times a week, putting in tons of effort and not really noticing a change. Turns out, your body type could have something to do with this, and is one of the reasons why someone who follows virtually the same workout regimen as you can have results that are totally different than your own.

And, no, we’re not talking about pear or apple or whatever other fruit people try and compare to body shapes. We’re going to talk about endomorphs, ectomorphs and mesomorphs—three body types that build muscle and lose fat differently.

We caught up with Jen Widerstrom, a trainer on a little show you may have heard of called The Biggest Loser, ahead of the Shape Magazine Body Pop-Up Fitness Event (a boutique workout pop-up featuring top trainers) happening in Los Angeles on Saturday, June 17, to chat about working out for your body type.
