Think you're fit enough to take on the Boston Marathon? How about walk across nine states? Or camp during a 570 mile walk, compete against 11 other motivated individuals and fight Mother Nature all along the way? That's what 12 individuals asked themselves on the weight loss reality show, Fat March. The show debuted August 2007 on ABC and followed this group of six men and six women, battling obesity on an unprecedented journey to not only gain control of their weight, but learn the their strength individually and as a team while taking the first of many steps to live a healthier life.
The contestants in Fat March think they are moving into a posh mansion as part of a comfortable approach to losing weight. Instead, they'll need their best pair of tennis shoes as their adventure will begin at the starting line of the infamous Boston Marathon. From there, Fat March contestants walked, biked and ran a course of 570 miles to Washington DC. Their entire trip was accompanied by two expert trainers. They camp all along the way, battling the outdoors and the perseverance of their teammates. There was a prize pool of $1.2 million up for grabs.
You'll of course be able to follow along with Fat March Monday nights on ABC and take notes for implementing the practices they teach in your own life. Weight loss reality shows like Fat March typically create an online program you can use yourself, and with time this one shouldn't be any different.
