They need to walk 12 miles to the training facility and their game plan is to do a mile on foot a mile off foot alternating. Chris says that it was hard watching Jeff walk because he felt his pain while doing it and Juliana is very supportive so far.

Juliana wants to impress her dad and the father daughter team continue on their pace. Jeff reaches the Denver Broncos stadium and gives viewers a little history.

Now he is really feeling it and Jeff needs to be checked by a medic. At this point things are not looking well for this father who is trying to prove his worth in his child's life.

Seeing a father daughter team on the show is very uplifting as it is a way to encourage other families to overcome obstacles together.

The doctor determines that Jeff may potentially have a disc injury and that he can not take part in the workout today.

The pediatrician determines that Juliana needs to lose about 166 lbs. Her first goal is to lose 66 lbs in the first 90 days.

Jeff feels helpless and now the Powell's need to find a way to get through the wall. Juliana begins the fight or flight exercise and it proves to be quite hard for her.

She breaks down which in turn causes Jeff to break down and the show has reached a pivotal point. Heidi even gets emotional and once Juliana let that out it looks like it brought the two closer together.

Juliana continued her workout and her determination helped her get through them.

Jeff gets the green light to workout and Chris enlists Demaryius Thomas to help. Once Juliana and Jeff see who is helping them they are even more excited to complete the workout. Thomas tells the team about his injuries and the fact that they never stopped him, with that they begin some NFL drills.

They don't tell the truth and the Powells are forced to call them out on it. They tell Jeff and Juliana that they were watched for a full day and showed them the proof.

Jeff tries to lie his way out and he isn't being honest with Heidi and Chris.
