Speakin' Richard Sherman Jul 10, 2014 It’s the beginning of football's off-season, and NFL (National Football League) players are flocking from all over the country to Barwis’s gym – to become better athletes, but also to become better people. This year, though, Barwis has a special case: the incendiary Super Bowl champion Richard Sherman. To try to get through Sherman's tough exterior, Barwis pairs him with a young NFL prospect struggling to achieve his dream of making the league. Will Sherman lead the young hopeful on the right path, or prove to Barwis and the world that he’s the self-centered prima donna many think him to be?

Baron Davis Aug 14, 2014 Mike Barwis and his gang of trainers help athletes and average joes overcome all types of injuries, from knee strains to paralysis – fixing both their bodies and their minds.

The point guard has lost all confidence in his ability to compete and is terrified of failing all over again. When Barwis takes Baron to a basketball court for a game of one-on-one the first time since his injury, will Baron finally turn the corner in his progress – or will his psyche crumble? At the same time, Barwis helps Green Bay Packers player Jerel Worthy deal with a problem a little more basic: losing enough weight to stay injury free himself.

Barwis ramps up the power of Swisher’s swing with some unorthodox methods like tossing a beer keg on the frozen tundra of Michigan.

Tyrann Mathieu Sep 4, 2014 At a gritty gym in Detroit, a blue-collar crew uses a combination of science, tough love and just-plain-crazy to train average joes alongside the top pro athletes in the country. This week Mike Barwis, Dusty, Mozes and Tank Dog tackle their biggest and most controversial client ever – the NFL’s Honey Badger, straight off a year of drug arrests and disappointment. As they struggle to bring the star back down to earth, they take on a completely different challenge: training a professional bull rider who’s about to compete in a rodeo straight out of the Wild Wild West. Meanwhile, Mozes, 275 pounds of pure American Barbarian, goes on an excruciating juice cleanse to lose weight before his honeymoon – inspiring Tank Dog to order every item from Mozes’s favorite Italian restaurant. Will Mozes survive the beefy, cheesy temptation?
