Ben: Okay. Kit: Failure’s what we want. Ben: Oh, we’re gonna get plenty of failure. Ben (walking): I’ve never really seen myself
exercise on camera before, but…pretty sure it’s not gonna be very flattering. Ben (driving): So you may not have noticed,
because I’m hiding my chins underneath this beard, but I’m a little on the husky side.
Doctors have another word for it. I used to be an athlete. I wasn’t a good
athlete, but I was an athlete. I mean, I could even dunk a basketball. Don’t worry, my
friends don’t believe it either. So I’m spending the week with celebrity
trainer Kit Rich. Because I want to learn the fitness secrets of the young, and the
rich, and the beautiful. Because I’m pretty sure they have secrets. I learned a lot that first day. I learned to never hire a sound guy off Craigslist. Trust me, I just said something hilarious. I also learned that vomiting from exercise
was a real thing, and something to be afraid of. But more than anything, I learned that this
tiny woman could absolutely destroy me. But then I stopped thinking about celebrities,
or fitness secrets, or even how much my man boobs were sweating. I just listened to Kit’s
commands, and then I tried to do them the best that I could. And that’s when things got interesting. Kit: One more. Can
you engage your core? Kit: Use your lower abs. Pull them in. Kit: I need you to breathe on the up. Breathe!
Two more, you can do this! Come on! Come on! Kit: One more. Kit: Six. That’s it. Use your core. Pull
in. Kit: Come on! Remember your athlete days!
Remember your athlete days! Kit: Ten seconds to go! Ben (VO): And this is when I finally learned the fitness secret of celebrities and other beautiful people. And the secret is…there
is no secret. It’s just hard work. Lots and lots of hard, goddamn work. Ben (VO): And that’s kinda beautiful. Ben: That’s so embarrassing! Ben (VO): Because it’s so simple that anyone
can do it. But it’s also kinda terrifying. Because if it’s so simple that anyone can
do it, then why can’t I? Kit: Fifteen seconds left. Ben (VO): I wish I would have found a different
secret. I wish there was some kind of magic Pilates or kale juice or even designer steroids
that all the celebrities took to get fit. Kit: Do not give up on yourself! Give me on
more! Give me one more! Ben (VO): But there isn’t. There’s just
hard work. Ben: Son of a bitch! Ben (VO): Lots and lots of hard work. And
if you’re lucky, someone like Kit to make it feel a little bit easier. Kit: Okay, here we go! Overhead shoulder press. Kit: That, I’m gonna have to charge you extra.
