TV DivaGal was so glad to see The Biggest Loser‘s Dina Mercado finally jump that box in her transformation video.

It wasn’t easy!

Dina admits she went home and got a trainer right away to help her teach that box who is boss.

“I had to face it, I wanted it so bad,” she spills to the TV DivaGal. Her trainer gave her practice runs on a stack of mats.

“He actually had me jumping about three to four inches higher than the box.”

Still, Dina was grounded.

“He finally said to me, ‘Every time you come to this box, you have no commitment to yourself and everything that you want to do.’ That big word commitment stood in my head, and I said, you know, he’s right.”

That’s what it took for Dina to take the leap.

“When I finally did get up on that box, it was like me committing to myself that anything is possible. I can be unstoppable as long as I commit, and that’s awesome.”
