NEW YORK, Oct. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Season after season, millions of people have been inspired by the work of the contestants on the popular television show, The Biggest Loser. On October 15th, season 15 of The Biggest Loser will premiere on NBC with an uplifting "Second Chances" theme. With more than one third of adults in America suffering from obesity, and the rate of childhood obesity having doubled in the last 30 years, the show has become a beacon of hope and a source of inspiration, motivation and education for people who are dealing with issues similar to those of the show's contestants. The Biggest Loser Resorts, the exclusive resort licensee of NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products and Shine America, is expanding in an effort to provide a second chance, through their award-winning program, to those who have tried unsuccessfully to lose weight on their own.
As part of the season 15 "Second Chances" theme, The Biggest Loser Resorts provided all eliminated contestants with the opportunity to enjoy a three-week stay at the resort of their choice prior to the show's live finale on February 4, 2014. The Biggest Loser Resorts also sponsored a special Thanksgiving episode challenge this season.
Now with locations from New York to California, everyone has the opportunity to kick-start their journey toward the healthy, wholesome and fulfilling life they have been dreaming about. The Biggest Loser Resorts pride themselves onoffering a safe, private environment coupled with a structured program that combines extraordinary group camaraderie, fun exercise, extensive education, wonderful healthy cuisine created by a talented team of executive chefs, registered dieticians and nutritionists, and a wide array of revitalizing spa treatments. The Biggest Loser Resort program is tailored to help guests achieve and exceed their wellness goals, and be empowered to make healthy choices for the rest of their lives.
There are four amazing Biggest Loser Resorts across the country, each with its own unique features. The Malibu, California resort is located just six miles from the Pacific Ocean and is surrounded by the natural oasis of the Santa Monica Mountains. The Niagara, New York resort sits lakeside on 300 private acres and is surrounded by luscious trees and awe-inspiring scenery – the quintessential western New York getaway. Nestled just beneath Big Red Mountain, the Ivins, Utah resort motivates guests with its majestic views and world-renowned hiking trails. For those who don't want to venture too far from city life, the Chicago, IL resort, located just three miles from O'Hare International Airport within the Eaglewood Resort, offers stunning and scenic views of Oak forests, three lakes and its championship golf course.
Every Biggest Loser Resort features fabulous amenities, including comfortable accommodations, world-class cuisine, state-of-the-art fitness facilities, refreshingly large swimming pools and a full-service spa. Guests may stay at the resort for as many weeks as they would like and choose varied room packages to accommodate their budgets.
As a recent guest of The Biggest Loser Resort in Chicago, says: "I was truly blessed to be able to spend a month at The Biggest Loser Resort in Chicago. The Resort will always have a special place in my heart. The staff and the trainers are amazing! Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought in just a week I would make such lifetime friendships – I came home with another family. I have been gone from The Resort for 9 weeks and I am still using what they taught me and still losing weight. But most importantly I believe in myself again. They showed me that I can do things I never thought I could do. I can't wait to go back."
