Do you ever watch The Biggest Loser and wish you could be in their shoes? Do you long for the motivation to keep going? The Biggest Loser Club is a way for people to enjoy the Biggest Loser weight loss techniques without subjecting themselves to reality-show stardom. The online weight loss community offers personalized fitness plans, healthy recipes, professional advice, motivation from other members and other cutting edge weight-loss tools.
The Club works by providing an intricate system of peers and professionals to guide you along your path. Message boards, food journals, personalized goal charts, challenges, shopping lists and other interactive tools help keep you connected. You don’t have to do this alone.
Suffice it to say that exercise plays a big role in The Biggest Loser Club. Unfortunately, sample exercise routines are not available on the site, but we do know that Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels offer online videos to demonstrate a Biggest Loser workout.
The Biggest Loser crew went on strike last week in an effort to secure health benefits. To help the family members of the strikers while they go unpaid, Jillian Michaels, Bob Harper and Alison Sweeney have started a support fund. “Our crew have families to support so in the interim Bob, Ali, I are auctioning off three training sessions each (Ali will be doing lunch dates) to help contribute to this fund,” writes Jillian on her Facebook.
Those who wish to help out can make a direct donation, or can bid on one of the charity auctions on eBay. Bob and Jillian are both auctioning off one-hour workout sessions, and Alison is auctioning off lunches. One workout will be auctioned off by each trainer for three days, and Alison will auction off one lunch day for three days. Each auction will last for 24 hours.
In an unprecedented move on Biggest Loser, Bob Harper invited contestants to his home for dinner. The few who had fallen below the yellow line in season 10′s fourth week needed some cheering up, and Bob offered that in the form of a beautiful patio dinner at his LA home. The contestants, who typically prepare their own meals on campus, were no doubt excited by the prospect of a night off from the kitchen.
Upon arriving at his cool bachelor pad in the hills, Bob gave contestants a tour of his refrigerator. The contents included a whole watermelon, carrot sticks, a door full of condiments, his no-doubt sponsored Brita pitcher, and what appeared to be Pacifico beers. He said his rule is never keep anything that has a shelf life shorter than two weeks. In other words, fresh food goes bad and you should only be eating fresh foods.

They didn’t go BIGGER this year, they went wider, as in nation-wide to find this season’s Biggest Loser contestants! Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels always start out by setting the stage for the season and this time they gave some pretty staggering statistics! The truth is, the shape of America is changing and it’s not for the better, so Biggest Loser is continuing to do their part to shape up America and inspire people to get out and get active!
I love how Bob and Jill got to go to spots across the country, lead workouts, lead challenges and talk with people who have done the journey on their own at home! I also loved how they showed several people who had tried out for the show or were inspired by the show and made the changes on their own at home. Daily, I get Facebook messages and tweets about how people wish they could workout with Bob and Jill and this season tons of people got that opportunity! SO amazing!
I think the whole challenge to get on the ranch is actually a really interesting twist. It really shows a “fight” in people to go after what they want. Yet, it’s heartbreaking because you know everyone needs it, but the reality is not everyone is going to make it. But if I know Biggest Loser like I know Biggest Loser, don’t count these people out too soon! Read Full Post >
