DOLVETT & RUBEN STUDDARD – Read the Brand New Interview Now!

Meet the Biggest Loser 15 Contestants, Including American Idol Ruben Studdard and Olympian Holley Mangold

“I deserve to live a happy and healthy life,” said The Biggest Loser season 15 contestant Tanya Winfield. Achieving a happy and healthy life is a big part of the upcoming season of The Biggest Loser. This year, it’s all about second chances. From a former American Idol to an Olympic athlete, season 15 of The Biggest Loser is providing its contestants with a second chance at the kind of life they want to live.

For these men and women, it’s going to be quite a change from what they are used to. “I came in thinking I was an athlete and realized that didn’t mean anything,” said contestant and Olympic weightlifter Holley Mangold.

Most contestants agreed that the most challenging part of being on The Biggest Loser is the workouts with the trainers. “The trainers are what they are. They are here to do a job. They are personable and want you to get in shape, but their main goal is to change our lives,” contestant and American Idol Ruben Studdard said. All three trainers, Bob Harper, Jillian Michaels, and Dolvett Quince, return this season to help the 15 men and women on their weight loss journeys.

“We have a really good group of people. We’ve got people that are really willing to see themselves for what they are at the very beginning, which is they don’t have the ability, but they have that drive, that want,” trainer Bob Harper said.

For the first time ever, the trainers helped select the contestants, but they will also get to save them. Each trainer has one “save” this season, where they can reverse an elimination and keep a contestant on the ranch who they think deserves it. It’s an exciting first for the show.

Trainer Jillian Michaels added that the contestants change more than their physical appearances. “You don’t just see a physical transformation; you see the emotional transformation; a completely different self-image, self-worth. That to me makes all the hardship worth it.” Season 15 of The Biggest Loser premieres on Tuesday, October 8 at 8 p.m. EST on NBC.

Best of Fitbloggin 2013: Recap and Swag Bag Giveaway

My lunch on Friday, June 28 was the best I’ve had in a while. A roasted chicken sandwich with a basil aioli, lots of fresh veggies, and a table surrounded by new and old friends – it was exactly what high noon at Fitbloggin’ is supposed to look like. I was three meals in to this year’s conference when I could whole-heartedly say it was the best food that had ever been served at this event. And then, the noon hour entertainment pushed beyond anything we’ve seen at Fitbloggin’ before.

mizfit fitbloggin fashion show

I’d seen a fashion show on the schedule and admittedly balked. By the time the third person stepped on to the catwalk I was fighting back tears. I tweeted out that what was happening in that room was redefining strength and beauty. Organized by Emily Ho Sandford, women of every body shape and size graced the stage to rousing applause, often bearing nothing more than a bra and workout pants. They donned wares by Handful, Enell, and Reebok and showed that what was on the outside hardly defined what was on the inside.

If that fashion show didn’t set the tone for the weekend, I don’t know what would have.

It was the conference’s fourth year and proudly our fourth to be involved. This year, a special scavenger hunt with a hot prize awaited the more than 200 attendees. Every goodie bag had one of our token blue cowbells stuffed inside. But hidden around the conference center were five golden cowbells earning the recipient a seat at an upcoming Google+ Hangout with Biggest Loser’s Dolvett Quince. One winner announced she’d have to leave her husband, another was on the verge of tears, and all seemed to be on the cusp of exciting new detective careers!

Exclusive Interviews with Biggest Loser Teens Who Return to Ranch in Week 8

Tonight brings episode 8 of the Biggest Loser Season 14, and we couldn’t be more excited. The kids are returning to the ranch for more one-on-one time with the trainers and the remaining contestants.

We had the pleasure of catching up with Biingo, Lindsay and Sunny today, and they were anything but kids to us with their grown-up perspectives and mature outlook on their Biggest Loser experience. Here’s what they had to say.

What was your biggest fear or worry before joining the show?

Biingo: I guess my biggest fear was just thinking about how hard it would be. But I was excited to experience it. I thought it would be hard to change my habits and exercise more.

How has your interaction with the trainers been?

Lindsay: In the beginning the exercising and dieting was really hard for me. I was never used to eating in small portions. I’d tell Dolvett, “No, I don’t want to eat in small portions. It’s too hard for me.” But now my body is used to exercising and eating healthy things like natural sugar instead of processed sugar.

Biingo: All the trainers are really great, honestly. They help me and the other kids a lot. Unfortunately, there is still the whole difference of us being in our homes and them being far away. (more…)

How Justin Bieber Stays Fit Boxing, Running and Eating Healthy

A video of Justin Bieber and Mike Tyson boxing is creating quite a buzz around the Web. And it has us wondering what exactly the young singer’s fitness routine is.

Rumors have circulated that as the teen star matures in his career, he seeks out new role models such as Tyson and fellow pop star Usher. With these new friendships come new activities, such as boxing sessions as Tyson’s personal gym.

This seems to fit Bieber’s personality as fitness has always been a part of his life despite a busy schedule. The singer has managed to stay in tip-top shape by making time for his workouts even though the past few years have been a whirlwind of concerts, video shoots, and countless TV appearances promoting his music.

After releasing his first album, Bieber went straight to performing his hits around the world, and was on and off tour for about a year. Globetrotting is just a part of Justin’s life and he has had to make adjustments to accommodate his hectic lifestyle. In order to do so, the star hired personal trainer Dolvett Quince to keep him in shape for his most recent tour; Quince is now a trainer on The Biggest Loser. (more…)

Exclusive! Dolvett Prepares for Biggest Loser 13 Finale

I met up with Dolvett, and his smile, in his dressing room just a couple of hours before the star trainer takes to the Biggest Loser 13 finale stage. He was noshing on a beautiful spread of fresh berries, salmon, almonds, chicken, and hummus, and admitted feeling a little nervous about tonight. After all, two of the three finalists are his contestants. Ultimately, he wants the best person to win.

We reminisced about this season, and how it took him from ballet tights and Zumba clothes, to the White House and Hawaii, something he was able to mark off his bucket list.

In the coming weeks you’ll see Dolvett starring as the first male to lead SELF’s Workout in the Park, taking place in San Francisco, New York City, and Chicago.

He’s mum on any other projects he has in the works, noting they are plenty, and still didn’t share any more details when I remembered he’d previously mentioned a book and workout DVDs. Maybe the DVDs will progress in three weeks or so when he finally kicks the custom made Louis Vuitton boot protecting his broken foot.

Dolvett Readies for Biggest Loser Season 13 Premiere

Dolvett Quince took the Biggest Loser ranch by storm last season and stole the hearts of America. That’s quite a feat considering he was replacing the beloved, and feared, Jillian Michaels. Tonight, Biggest Loser 13 will premiere with only two trainers, with both Dolvett and Bob Harper.

This morning, Dolvett made an appearance on the Today Show to promote the new season, which has a two-hour premiere tonight to introduce us to the 20 new contestants who are in for the shock of a lifetime – a season centered around No Excuses. Even with a very successful season behind him, the top finishers of the Biggest Loser 12 marathon were his trainees, he was still surprised by the newest class.

“I was surprised by the contestants – psychologically they have so much doubt. My job is to help them remove the doubt and lose the weight,” he told Matt Lauer. (more…)

Trainers Bob and Dolvett Get Little Face Time on Biggest Loser 13

By Courtney Crozier

The Biggest Loser is kicking off yet another couples season on January 3. The motto for the season is “NO EXCUSES!” which is very fitting for the start of a new year. The two trainers on season 13 are Dolvett Quince and Bob Harper, who we had the opportunity to speak with this morning. He answered a few of our questions as we await tomorrow night’s season premiere.

Dolvett, Bob, and their teams are competing against each other, so the obvious question is, “How do the trainers get along?” At least, we and @wlcmomof3 on Twitter wanted to know. Bob told us they “get along just fine,” but he doesn’t focus on Dolvett because he is focused solely on his team during workouts. Behind the scenes, Dolvett and Bob do not get the opportunity to talk much as they are separated most of the time. It’s not like the Bob and Jillian Michaels duo that we’ve seen in seasons past!

Diet and Fitness Celebrities Share Their 2012 Resolutions

New year’s resolutions are mostly synonymous with weight loss. It’s not a bad goal to set when you remember that about half of our country is considered obese.

We spoke with some of the diet and fitness world’s A-list to hear what their resolutions are for the coming year. While they are the pictures of health, many of them are also looking at introducing new habits to their lifestyles in the coming year. Many also model using resolutions to simply better themselves, be it a few less f-bombs or more time with family.

Click through to hear how Joy Bauer, Jillian Michaels, Dolvett Quince, Kirstie Alley, Kithe Brewster, Denise Austin, Tracey Mallett, and others will be resolving to make better choices in 2012.

“My resolution is to stop swearing. While I’m doing that, I’d love to see people quit smoking, eat better, and hit the gym in 2012.”

Biggest Loser Season 13 Reveals Shocking Twist

Fresh on the heels of John Rhode‘s amazing win in season 12 of the Biggest Loser, the show has announced details about season 13, which begins airing January 3.

When season 13 kicks off, contestants arrive at the Biggest Loser Ranch and receive some pretty shocking news: while they get there in teams of two, which includes a mother/daughter, father/son, brother/sister and husband/wife combination, they will be split from their loved ones and will have to compete against them!

Dubbed the season of “No Excuses,” the competitors are taken out of their comfort zone to face both physical and mental challenges like they never have before in their lives. Not to mention, one team won’t even make it on the ranch. (more…)
