Who Is Steve Conley? Josh & Jim Bob Duggar's Trainer Might Be Familiar To Football Fans

Throughout the past few seasons of 19 Kids and Counting , Josh and Jim Bob Duggar have been shown trying to improve their health. Josh has said in the past that he ate like his wife Anna did during each of her three pregnancies, causing him to gain weight that was difficult to lose. This Tuesday's episode of the TLC reality series will show Josh's weight loss attempts again, as he gets a surprise visit from his personal trainer, Steve Conley.

However, Steve's no ordinary personal trainer, and if Josh plans on sneaking any cheat meals, he should probably hire somebody who's going to be a bit more lenient. I wouldn't be surprised if he totally cracked under the pressure, because Conley is not messing around.

Here's what you need to know about the man who wants to help Josh reach his fitness goals.

Conley had a long career in sports & training

If Conley’s name sounds familiar, that’s because he’s no stranger to the athletic community. Before becoming a personal trainer, Conley played for both the Pittsburgh Steelers and Indianapolis Colts in the ’90s.

He's also been on the show before

Back in 2013, Conley, his pastor, and his six children joined the Duggars for a meal, and as you can expect, they needed a pretty big seating area to accommodate those kind of numbers.

He’s also trained with Jim Bob and Josh before when they competed in a weight loss challenge. After seeing this go down, I’m slightly terrified of what Conley is capable of. If anyone can whip them into shape, it’s him… or that guy from Extreme Weight Loss.

HIs son is also involved in the fitness lifestyle.

If Conley’s son can be out there hitting the weight room, certainly Josh can find it in himself to lift for his own health and well being. Maybe he can bring Michael along for a playdate while the dads work out?

And seriously, how cute is this guy?

Under Conley's training, Jim Bob & Josh lost serious weight

They lost a combined 57 pounds after following Conley’s training plan and nutrition recommendations last year. We’ll have to see what Conley thinks of Josh’s current fitness level when he surprises him on Tuesday.
