According to the site, the pricey workout consists of HIIT training, cardio and weightlifting besides nutritional counseling. All participants are also prohibited to drink alcohol the entire nine weeks.

I've been consistent with my workouts and finally put down the chips. What food is your weakness?"

In "Today" show, the two said, "We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so... We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and each other's children."
