Here comes the bride, all dressed and…wide? After months of stressful planning and bank-breaking expenses, the real test of a bride’s nerves is the stroll down the aisle in her dream wedding dress. She knows that all eyes will be on her, examining every inch of her body in that revealing, glamorous gown. No woman wants to be a bulging bride!
Bulging Brides is a fun-filled, action-packed television series that chronicles a bride’s determined struggle to drop unwanted inches and pounds so that she’ll be in tip-top shape on her wedding day. Bulging Brides features every bride’s “Dream Team”: fitness coach Tommy Europe and nutrition specialist Nadeen Boman.
Each half-hour episode features the true story of one bride-to-be in the high-anxiety weeks before the Big Day. Our bride has the perfect wedding dress…but it doesn’t quite fit in all the right places! Racked by tension from the bridal arrangements and petrified by the thought of looking chunky on her big day, the bride-to-be has turned to our Dream Team to lose her bulges and look breathtaking as she makes her way down the aisle....Less details
Tommy Europe is the tough-love fitness coach of Bulging Brides! Tommy is one of the country's most sought-after personal trainers whose modus operandi is a military-style IN-YOUR-FACE approach. “Pain is just weakness leaving the body”, says Tommy, who earned his credentials in the school of very hard knocks.
Before becoming a personal trainer, Tommy starred in the CFL as a defensive back with the BC Lion’s and Winnipeg Blue Bombers where his bone-crushing hits often made the evening highlight reels. His reputation as one of the CFL’s hardest hitters earned the Toronto native a stint with the New Orleans Saints of the NFL.
“My style as a personal trainer is definitely rooted in my experience as a football player. If you work hard, we’ll get along. If not, you’ll probably wish we hadn’t met”, says Tommy.
In 2006, 2007 and 2009, Tommy was voted the number one Personal Trainer in the Georgia Straight’s “Best of Vancouver” reader’s poll.
Recently Tommy’s good looks and athleticism have taken him into the world of film, where he is emerging as one of Hollywood North’s elite stunt performers. He has recently appeared in a number of television shows and films including Scary Movie 4, Little Man and Vice. Sexy, savvy and at times, just plain scary, Tommy is the fitness coach people love to hate, and women definitely love to watch.

“As a woman I know what buttons to push. It’s for their own good”, says Nadeen who realizes some recruits may think of her as “the nutrition bitch”. “I’m the girlfriend you hate until my advice pays off. Then I’m your best friend” she says.
