After a break, everyone is in the gym. Singles, blah blah blah, in it to win it, blah blah blah, yellow line, blah blah blah, stepping up the game, blah. Buddy of course has the stress fracture, so is rocking the bike. On the theme of the week, Emily has historically had some problems believing in herself. Kim tries to jump up on a platform, and can't do it, and Dolvett tells her to believe in herself. We then are reminded of Kim's wrestling past, and how she broke her back, and then she jumps up on the thing and victory, triumph of the spirit, etc. Jeremy smiles while he runs, because he's come so far. He has a history of being very self-conscious, but the show has given him a new sense of confidence. Jeremy is really a good kid. Comparing him to Conda gives some perspective on the nature/nurture thing. Bob takes his trainees out to the playground, and Emily gets frustrated about not being able to do things on the first try, as is her wont. Kimmy, however, is starting to realize her own strength, in part due to her victory over Emily at the challenge.
Bob dismisses most of his people, but holds Emily back for a one-on-one. And so it was foretold in the first paragraph of this recap! Bob says it's imperative that he and Emily are on the same page, because they have to keep her above the yellow line. Emily knows that Kim is her only ally in the house, and that she's targeted by the others. Bob wants Emily to believe in herself and make this count. They sit in her room, in front of a whole bunch of affirmations written by her friends, and Bob tells Emily that it's her turn to feel that way about herself. He sees greatness in her, and wants her to start believing it. He is so impassioned that he uses the F-word. Bob knows that if he can tap into the athlete inside of Emily, she'll succeed. That may be true, but at the moment she still looks awfully defeated. Oh, but wait! Bob asks Emily to train him in Olympic weight lifting, and she's psyched about the role reversal. She definitely knows something about hoisting dumbbells. The others look on, and Bob tells us that Emily is a good coach but a mean coach. He hopes that she can take this mean confidence and put it into everything else, and go the distance. Bob ends his time with Emily by tripping over something, which seems appropriate.
