“Work Out” Recaps: Episode 3.5 “No Pain, No Gain”


The Drowsy SkyLabber Agostina

has gone to visit Micah at his apartment, to check on his Sunfare planned meal

supply and demonstrate exercises that he can do in the comfort of his own home.

There’s more of that personal attention that Deenie’s not

getting from Mr. Rock and Roll, Gregg Butler.

During her home visit, we

learn several things. Sunfare’s miso-blackened salmon is “I mean, like, delicious,”

squats and lunges are fun and easy, and Micah likes Broadway musicals.

Is that a copy of The Drowsy Chaperone

on the bookshelf? No, not too gay.

All aboard — Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Jackie assigns Brian’s

former client Shannon to J.D., but not because he earned it or is ready to step

up. It’s because she’s shorthanded. But the Master of Marketing spins it to be a

match made in fitness heaven. J.D. wants to prove himself to the boss, so he

thanks her and runs off to learn how to be a trainer in the next 24 hours.

The next day, it’s time

to leave for the retreat. Everyone meets in the lobby of Sky Sport and prepares

to board the crazy train, which today is cleverly disguised as a charter bus.

Jackie gives trainers and clients alike a peppy talk about the hard emotional

and physical work that lies ahead of them. Lisa, who has no earthly reason to

be there except, hey, free trip, clings to her pillow from home. Maybe they can

drop her off at the Special

, where she can do color commentary, and they can pick her up on

the way back.

En route to the resort,

Jackie suggests that everyone introduce themselves. Agostina states her name

and gushes that her client Micah is awesome. Renessa tells everyone she’s

training Tyra, who gives a hearty “woo hoo” when she hears her name. Jesse

gives it up for his BFF, Natalie. Deenie introduces herself and says Gregg is

her trainer. Where is Gregg, anyway?

Also missing from the

magical misery tour are Erika’s client, Damon, and Greg Plitt; they will be

coming up to the resort on their own.

Too bad they didn’t get

to witness these road trip shenanigans: Jackie and Jesse pretend to kiss. At

the last moment, Jackie and Jesse pull back and giggle, but accidentally brush


Jesse: They touched!

Jackie: It burns! It burns!

I miss Jackie and Jesse’s

amusing gay brother-sister chemistry. For that, I blame the producers.
