Fans of Work Out have already seen Warner work her magic with significantly overweight clients via her exclusive "SkyLab" program, a six day/seven night fitness vacation that comes with a side of professional counseling. But on Work Out, SkyLab was only a fraction of the action at best. With Thintervention, Warner's taking her one-on-one work a step further with an entire series that expands on SkyLab's basic principles of nutrition, fitness education, and group therapy.

You could quibble with the fact that viewers don't get the participants' height along with their weight, or that Warner equates losing weight with looking "sexier." (Or that Warner sometimes wears workout pants so low it makes us blush.) But in general, Thintervention delivers more useful take-aways about working out and eating right than a lot of other shows about slimming down. Even better, it does so without too many gimmicks, resulting in an easily digestible message that health is seriously important.
