Learn about the inspirational weight loss journey of the American business executive, Mitchell Modell.
Mitchell Modell is the Chief Executive Officer and President of Henry Modell & Company and Modell's Sporting Goods. He obtained the company, which was founded by his great-grandfather in 1889, as a family inheritance.
Additionally, Mitchell Modell is also well known for his appearance in an episode of the CBS reality series, 'Undercover Boss.' That is how he came into fame in the first place. Since the airing of the episode, Mitchell Modell managed to lose 60 pounds of body weight. But how did he manage to pull it off? Let's find out.
Mitchell Modell came into media prominence following his appearance in an episode of the CBS reality series, 'Undercover Boss.' The series is based on the idea of a person with an upper management position at a major business, going undercover as an entry-level employee to discover the company's faults.

Mitchell Modell's company is spread over 140 retail locations in the United States, from Washington D.C. to New Hampshire. But the episode of 'Undercover Boss,' on which Mitchell featured in aired initially just days after Hurricane Sandy, which is why much of the northeast where his company operates, was unable to see the show. It got re-aired in 2013. After the show was televised, some large-scale changes in customer service practices in his company came into place. And he also brought changes into persona shifts in the company.
Since then, Mitchell also lost nearly 60 pounds as he realized his weight got in the way of his ability to perform some of his work-related responsibilities. He achieved such a successful weight loss by bringing a huge change into his way of living. He adopted a healthy diet routine and intense workout regimen daily in order to achieve such a feat. With continued dedication and commitment, he attained a fit and healthy body shape in recent years.
