Chris Powell is the trainer and transformation specialist on ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition," which debuted as the number one TV show last May. Throughout the first season, Chris traveled the country in a documentary-style series, where he used his innovative techniques, education and expertise to guide extremely overweight individuals as they shed hundreds of pounds over the course of a year. "Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition" will return to ABC for a second season starting June 3, and casting is currently underway for season three.
Adding best-selling author to his list of accolades, Chris's first book Choose to Lose, was released by Hyperion in December and has soared to the top of the New York Times Best Seller list. The book provides motivation, nutrition, exercise, tips, and tricks to help anyone lose those last twenty pounds.
Chris holds a degree in Exercise Science, with concentrations in biomechanics and physiology and the training accreditation: The Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS). He is a regular contributor to "Good Morning America" and "The Doctor Oz Show," and has been the Transformation Pro on KTVK's "Good Morning Arizona" for the last eight years - delivering tips, shortcuts, and tricks of the trade to the largest news viewing audience in Arizona.
Chris exploded onto the fitness scene with his unorthodox approach, becoming a pioneer for a new hybrid of fitness professionals. He has captured national attention with the largest and fastest natural weight loss ever documented, transforming the life of David Smith who lost 401 lbs in 26 months. It was Chris's unyielding dedication to another that captured the heart of America as he shared his story on such national shows as "The Oprah Winfrey Show," "20/20," "The View," as well as a one-hour documentary for TLC.
