PHOENIX - Looking to get in shape with the help of one of TV's hardest working coaches?
The producers of ABC's “Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition,” are coming to Phoenix April 20 as part of their nationwide tour to cast new participants for season four.
The producers are looking for brave, “super obese” people who want to transform their bodies and their lives.
Coach Chris Powell, transformational specialist and author of the New York Times bestseller "Choose to Lose", works with participants for an entire year to help them safely lose up to half their body weight.
If you're interested in giving it a shot, visit the casting between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on April 20 at Gold's Gym at 1 E. Washington Street, Suite 250 in Phoenix.
In addition to Phoenix, casting calls will also be held in Salt Lake City, Milwaukee, Austin, Atlanta, Denver, Dallas, Nashville, St. Louis, Oklahoma City, Jackson (MS), Chicago, and Los Angeles.
Candidates are asked to attend an open call in one of the cities or send in a tape.
