Assuming it wasn't just an interview with a new fitness guru each week, I'd watch.  I'm much more interested in hearing from the same few people over and over, finding out what works and what they want to change.

Dairydell is a fantastic place for dogs. Everyone is super-friendly and their training is top notch. Dairydell took my two rambunctious labradors and helped them become closer to model dogs.
