Update: The release date was pushed back to October 6, and the game is now available.

In February we mentioned that there was the possibility of a new Biggest Loser Wii game. Our suspicions have been confirmed and this fall you’ll be able to workout right alongside Jillian, Bob and even former contestants in your own home. Biggest Loser The Game releases October 19 and will be available for the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS. This interactive health and fitness video game is being called “the first game where everyone loses,” and with personalized fitness and nutrition support, you’re sure to lose big!

“NBC’s The Biggest Loser show has transformed so many lives across the globe,” said Randy Shoemaker, vice president, global brand management, THQ, developer of the game. “The Biggest Loser video game will help Nintendo players everywhere achieve that same success at home. The video game offers fun, innovative work-out routines and functions as a complete, personalized health and fitness experience, giving players the tools they need to change their bodies and change their lives.”

Players will be lead through workouts and aided in reaching nutrition goals by star trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels, as well as the show’s host Alison Sweeney. The game is set at the infamous Biggest Loser Ranch and will allow players to compete against former contestants in four, eight, or 12 week challenges. Or, you can compete against a friend or family member and learn who really is the Biggest Loser! Just like on the show, players will participate in structured workouts, weekly challenges, weigh-ins and eliminations.

The workouts include upper and lower body, core strength, cardio and yoga. You are also able to record off-game activities you participate in like walking, running or biking.alison sweeney jillian michaels bob harper

“The hardest part of getting in shape and staying fit is knowing what to do, as well as maintaining the desire to stick with it,” said Bob Harper. “The Biggest Loser video game incorporates years of research and proven results taken from The Biggest Loser television show. This program offers personalized fitness and nutrition goals to give players the tools they need to lose weight and keep it off. ”

One of the tools we see contestants using at the ranch is a healthy diet. The Biggest Loser Wii game will include 50 healthy Biggest Loser recipes that have been published in their New York Times Bestselling books. Additionally, the game includes a calorie counter where you can record caloric intake and receive recommendations based on your goals.

For your on-the-go lifestyle, take your Biggest Loser support with you via the Nintendo DS. Track calories, receive recipes, dietary tips and encouragement from the trainers.

The Wii version will cost $39.99 and the DS version will cost $29.99.

Why do they not make any of these fitness games to go online. Wouldn't it be fun to compete with friends? Or to get and help to be motivated because of others progress?

I feel the same way, the program is not easy to figure out. Have you had any luck figuring out why you don't have a "daily" exercise program? Today my husband and I exercised together but it wouldn't let me add my exercise b/c I had already done my challenge....

I cannot figure out how to workout under my fitness program under this game. Every day I log in, it tells me there is no training scheduled. So when am I suppose to workout? My calendar shows that I will work out only two days during the week! This cannot be right. Does anyone have any idea how this game is suppose to work?

After the fiasco that was Jillian Michaels 2009, I wasn't expecting much from this one. But I was pleasantly surprised. It's still pretty much a glorified exercise video, but there are a ton of exercises to choose from which will really make you sweat. I would still recommend Wii Fit Plus or EA Sports Active over this one, as both of those do a much better job of taking advantage of the Wii's unique capabilities, but this one is a nice one if you just want an old-fashioned workout with traditional exercises.
