Those that want to lose weight like the contestants on the hit TV show Biggest Loser will soon have another location to consider for a weight loss getaway. The Biggest Loser Resort will be opening a Niagara location in Java Center, New York which is only 30 minutes from Niagara Falls. The newest location joins the current resorts in Ivins, Utah and Malibu, California and will open on May 6. The Biggest Loser Resorts are award winning fitness and wellness destinations that offer an affordable, results-oriented, calorie-controlled program. The new Niagara location is set on a pristine and scenic 300-acre retreat and will offer the same results oriented program that is available at the other locations.
Through the Biggest Loser Resorts, you can gain a memorable and life-changing experience that includes fitness, nutrition, education, relaxation and camaraderie. Visiting the resort is a great way to enjoy the same elements of fitness and diet plans that Biggest Loser contestants use on the show, without the cameras or pressure of being eliminated. The Niagara location will offer guests an outlined itinerary that includes seven hours of exercise and 1,200 calories spread out over three meals and a dessert each day. Similar to the other resort locations, Niagara will have former contestants at the site. The contestants slated for this location will be Jessica Limpert and Ramon Medeiros from season 12 of Biggest Loser. Jessica and Ramon will serve as full time trainers at the resort so the guests will truly get a Biggest Loser experience. They will be available to share their weight loss journey and experiences they had while on the show. Guests at the Niagara location may even get to share a meal with Jessica and Ramon on occasion.

Most of us find ourselves following the same routine throughout the weekdays. A lot of us typically follow a similar schedule Monday through Friday, making it easier (not easy, just easier) to plan in time to workout and prepare healthy meals.
The weekend, on the other hand, is a whole different story. For lots of people Saturday is their one day off for the entire week, and it is tempting to stay inside all day, relax, and maybe be rewarded for their hard work week with unhealthy foods.
At The Biggest Loser Resort we have a different idea of what Saturdays should entail. Each person that chooses to take part in our Saturday last chance workout receives not only a buff to wear with pride, but the bragging rights for completing a very real last chance workout. Trust me, I know, I have experienced a last chance workout on the ranch with Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels, and I have to say that our last chance workout the Biggest Loser Resort leaves me just as sweaty and satisfied!

This week I received an email including an experience of a guest that spent three weeks at Biggest Loser Resort at Malibu and it brought tears to my eyes. I am grateful she shared her story and I believe that there are so many out there who can relate. With her permission I am sharing this with you today.
My name is Karen Eaton, I’m a first grade teacher in Northern California. I joined my first weight loss group when I was 10-years old and in the 5th grade. Over the years I let my horrible choices destroy my self-esteem and my weight ballooned to 311.4 pounds. I was in my 20s and miserable. My mom convinced me to join Weight Watchers and I was motivated at first and about 90 pounds. This was about 8 years ago. I was so excited to have made that accomplishment. For some reason it didn’t stick and slowly I started going back to old habits and poor choices, the weight started creeping back on. Last year I was back to being miserable. I hated getting dressed in the morning and wasn’t motivated to do anything and really just cried a lot feeling like a failure. I was watching the Biggest Loser one day and saw an ad for Fitness Ridge. I thought “Wow, that sounds like something I could do!” (more…)

I had an eye-opening experience this week during my weekly visit to Fitness Ridge. I got a chance to jump in on Sharon’s kickboxing class and was having a great workout! Toward the end of class we were instructed to hit our bag with all our might for a straight 90 seconds. I was ready! I started in on my bag, giving it everything I had until my energy was drained. Around 30 seconds into it I started getting tired and could feel my starting to slow down. Out of the blue, a guest came and joined me on my bag. She started punching on the opposite side and was yelling out “come on, Sarah! Pick it up! You can do this. Punch harder! I can’t feel you!” The most incredible thing happened. A surge of energy rushed through me and my punches started coming out faster and faster. (more…)
Hi everyone! This is Sarah Nitta from The Biggest Loser season 11’s pink team. Just about a year ago I stepped foot onto the Biggest Loser Resort at Fitness Ridge in Malibu for the first time to train with the unknown trainers (Brett Hoebel and Cara Castronuova) and to change my life. I always thought that if I could make it on the Biggest Loser then I would finally be able to lose weight, and all of my dreams would come true.
What I didn’t realize was that while the the show provided me an opportunity to lose weight, I still had to do it! It was ME that still had to work, hurt, fight, and CHOOSE to do it every day.
I looked around at the guests at Fitness Ridge and saw that they were no different than I was. They may not have had a camera in their face or someone yelling at them as much, but they were doing it just like me. That’s when I realized that my belief about needing to make the show in order to lose weight was false. The show doesn’t lose weight for anyone, it is still up to that person. (more…)
