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.”
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.

Making his Biggest Loser debut on Season 12, Dolvett Quince has many years working as a trainer and put out his own line of DVDs. He’s the founder of Body Sculptor, Inc., in Atlanta. In this season of the show, he starts off working out with the black team, which is made up of the youngest contestants. However, he says we’ll have to tune in to find out if that gets shaken up or not.
We chat about what the show is like after Jillian, and how he got cast this season. Dolvett also talks about his approach to exercise, and the guilty pleasure he just can’t turn down. Although he’s worked with celebrities like Justin Bieber, Dolvett is not a typical star trainer. He has lots of experience working with obese clients, including someone very near to him. We think Dolvett is a great addition to the show, and can’t wait to see how this season of The Biggest Loser unfolds.
Tune in Tuesday, October 4, 2011 for personal trainer powerhouse Dolvett Quince on The Rachael Ray Show.
The Biggest Loser’s newest trainer Quince will be in the studio answering questions as the audience gets to know this new celeb trainer. Quince will also be giving tips for healthy snacks, including a figure-friendly treat to enjoy while watching TV (but only The Biggest Loser, of course!)
Be sure to check out Tuesday’s episode of Rachael Ray to learn some important tips from on an important subject!
On September 20, fifteen new contestants will walk in to our lives on NBC’s Biggest Loser. It’s the twelfth season for one of TV’s most popular reality shows, and it promises to make us laugh, cry, yell, and cheer for these perfect strangers who will soon feel like our family.
Season 12 comes with a lot of change. There aren’t just 15 new faces to familiarize ourselves with, there are new trainers, too. Anna Kournikova and Dolvett Quince replace the spot previously held by Jillian Michaels (now a co-host on The Doctors). And for those fans who haven’t heard, season 11 trainers Brett and Cara will not be back at the gym. That leaves veterans Alison Sweeney, the show’s host since season four, and Bob Harper, training since day one, to indoctrinate this group in to the Biggest Loser lifestyle and family.
This season includes eight men and seven women, competing as individuals, in a battle of the ages.
- Oldest contestant: John Forger, 65
- Youngest contestant: Courtney Rainville, 24
- Average contestant age: 42.6
The 15 contestants will be divided in to three groups of five according to youngest, middle-age, and oldest.
