What have participants said about the program?

"After 3 Biggest Loser sessions, over 100 pounds weight lost and going down 7 pants sizes, I'm living a healthier, more active life style - enjoying life to it's fullest.  The nutritional lectures helped me learn how to eat healthier and make better food choices.  Working with a trainer has given me a variety of exercises, keeping me from getting bored with the same workout routine.  My trainer's constant attention to my progress kept me on track and gave me the inspiration to push myself and achieve tremendous results."
