READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
As a fitting close to our hour-long tribute to all things weight loss, coming up at 9 fitness instructor and Flywheel co-founder Ruth Zukerman puts Piers Morgan through his paces, while a live studio audience giggles along.
“So, this is like a bike, right?” asks Morgan, clearly a stranger to physical exercise of any kind.
Zukerman, who has been a fitness instructor for more than 20 years, came up with the idea for the technology-added performance bikes in 2010, which allows the student to work smartly and effectively at a pace suited to their needs and abilities.
Clad in shirtsleeves sans tie, Morgan gives it a try, as Zuckerman shows him how to amp up the resistance:
“How many seconds will I have to keep doing this for?” asks an already slightly winded Morgan.
“About 30,” replies Zukerman, sensing that it may be 30 seconds too long for the host.
Always a good sport, Morgan continues to pedal valiantly, but concedes that this workout could be “pretty grueling.”
As the show comes to a close, Morgan notes that “luckily ... I don’t have to keep doing this.”
Watch the clip to see Morgan pedal for dear life, then tune in to CNN at 9 for the full hour entitled "Losing It: America’s Fat Obsession."
