About Rebecca Cardon

Many people recognize Rebecca Cardon from the sixth season of "The Amazing Race "or from Bravo's docu-drama, "WorkOut", but her interest in physical fitness can be traced back to her early childhood. Cardon's family, which is made up of several fitness enthusiasts, heavily influenced her passion for physical fitness. At the age of five, Rebecca's father took her to the gym and rewarded her with a candy bar every time she completed a set number of pull-ups. Enamored by the overwhelming sense of accomplishment, Rebecca moved on to later compete with her father in the world of competitive weight lifting. In her senior year of high school, she appeared with her father on "Good Morning America" as father/daughter world record holders for the bench press. That record is still in place today. Majoring in Broadcast Journalism and Communication, Cardon graduated from George Mason University.
Rebecca relocated to Los Angeles shortly after and has been a television fitness personality ever since. In 2005, Rebecca and her then boyfriend Adam competed in the Emmy award winning series, The Amazing Race. The race consisted of eleven teams racing 40,000 miles across four continents, stopping in 24 different cities, and the two personal trainers completed the race, ultimately placing third. Deemed "the strongest female competitor the race has ever seen" by The Early Show's Harry Smith, Cardon completed the more difficult tasks for her team along the way, taking the reigns and leading them around the world and across the finish line. In 2006, Rebecca signed onto the Bravo docu-drama, Work Out. The series, which ran three seasons, follows Rebecca's life as a personal trainer at Sky Sport and Spa in Beverly Hills. Flirtatious and uninhibited, Rebecca's actions and interactions with the other members of the Sky Sport staff led to some of the most talked about moments of the series. Rebecca can be seen as the spokesperson for several fitness products including "The Bun and Thigh Track" and "The Bean", and "The Ab Rocket Twister" which is currently airing world-wide and has sold over one million units.  She has also anchored and hosted several entertainment shows, including The Daily Pop and the E! Radio Network's Reality This Week, which aired on Sirius and XM satellite radio.  In March of 2009, Rebecca appeared on The "Oprah Winfrey Show" and in Oprah's April 2009 issue of "O Magazine".  A few months later, she joined the staff of the immensely popular "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" as the group's personal trainer.
