On the Dr. Oz Show!By Trainer Talk|Kim Lyons|2012-05-11 | Comments: 0Hi Oxygen friends,
What a crazy past few weeks I’ve had! Gunter was gone for two and a half weeks so my life was nuts! It’s amazing how smooth my little family unit runs, and boy did that turn upside down with Gunter gone. Usually it’s the husband that needs back up when the wife is out of town, but wow, did I need my parents help! Luckily, they were able to jump on a plane and come help out.
I’ve got some crazy fun news to share. I’m went to NY last week and filmed with Dr. Oz. I’m still pinching myself! After all my years doing different TV appearances I’m not usually nervous in front of a camera, but I won’t lie, I was a bit nervous!!
I arrived in NY and the crew was waiting for me to film some footage for my 45 sec. intro. After a 3am get up and a 6 hour flight, I wasn’t feeling very “camera ready” to say the least. I took a quick 30 min clean up and coffee break and was ready to roll (or should I say run... literally!) . I threw on a work out out fit and we headed to the gym. We filmed a few exercises and then headed back to the room for the interview. We filmed until about 8pm and then called it a day.
The crew left and I quickly ran out of the hotel in search of the biggest salad I could find! I love salad deli’s in NY, you just grab a bowl of greens and tell them what you want in it. It’s great!
I woke up overwhelmingly excited the day of the Dr Oz filming. The car picked me up and I landed at the NBC studio. I was escorted to my room and in popped the producer. We went over everything and I was ready to go. To be honest, I think the producer was more nervous then I was! It was a big segment and there was a lot to cover. Next was hair and make up, then legal paperwork, then web people, then wardrobe check, and last I was off for a quick rehearsal. I jumped up on the set and there was Dr Oz. He’s so down to earth, genuine, and easy to work with. I made sure the props were correct and switched a few things around and then went through everything with Dr Oz. It was so much fun! I was so surprised at how confident and calm I was. I really felt like I was in my element and everyone was so nice. They all seemed to love their jobs, despite the high stress of TV world.
I went back to room to wait and about 10 mins later I was on my way to film. The studio was filled with people and the energy was great. I did one segment on nutrition tips and then did a segment with a few exercise to do at home. It was so fun and went way to fast.
Just when I thought it couldn’t get much better, the producer came up and gave me a big hug and told me how awesome I did and that it was her favorite segment this season. Wow, that meant the world! Looks like I’ll be back again :)
I think it’s going to air on May 15th, but that may change, I’ll keep you all posted so you can watch and use some of my fun (and unique) tips!
