The Biggest Loser Resorts Focus On Fun Family Weight Loss - My Family Travels

The Biggest Loser Resort – Niagara set to open in May, 2012 in Java, New York promises the same supportive, weight loss programs made famous by the reality TV series.  Owned by Fitness Ridge Worldwide, it joins the company’s other two locations in Malibu, California and Ivins, Utah. Both have been widely praised for their wellness programs. The Utah resort recently won Spa Magazine's Readers Choice awards and has been a five-time SpaFinder winner, so we have high hopes for this property.

The Biggest Loser Resorts cater to individuals of all ages and fitness levels and focus on exercise, healthy nutrition and education – inspired by what contestants on NBC’s hit weight loss series “The Biggest Loser” experience during their time on the show. The resorts' stated mission is to "encourage and empower people to lose weight and achieve balance in their lives through a strategic combination of fitness, nutrition, education and relaxation."

Expanding Weight Loss Resorts to Combat Obesity

“The growth seen by our resorts has been explosive," says Larry Bond, CEO of Fitness Ridge Worldwide. "We are proud that our program has been universally embraced as the best weight-loss spa in the business. This new location… will aid us in our quest to help society conquer weight-related challenges and chronic illnesses linked to obesity such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and certain cancers.”

The Biggest Loser Resort – Niagara is being built on 300 scenic acres around the Beaver Hollow Conference Center, and will be part of a multi-million dollar expansion program at that facility. The new resort will incorporate the conference center, as well as a spa, swimming pool and state-of-the-art fitness facilities within easy reach of Northeast and Canadian families.

The Biggest Loser Family Wellness Programs

The Biggest Loser Resorts offer a minimum one-week weight loss program that combines morning hikes and an array of daily fitness classes, including kickboxing, yoga, spinning, biking, water aerobics, Zumba dance and others – all under the close supervision of certified personal trainers.

In addition to fitness professionals, The Biggest Loser Resorts also feature onsite health practitioners, dietitians and seasoned nutrition experts, as well as executive chefs, who prepare calorie-conscious, nutritionally balanced yet delicious spa cuisine meals.

The Biggest Loser programs are known for a focus on emotional support and positive energy embodied in the evening bonfire gatherings for guests, making them an ideal setting with older children. Open to ages 14-17 with an adult chaperone, they foster a healthier lifestyle by teaching teens about physical fitness, nutrition, and a positive approach to food. The Resorts also have onsite spas with a menu of massage options, aesthetics, acupuncture and other rejuvenating therapeutic treatments allowing for "treats" between the rigorous exercise experiences.

The Biggest Loser Resort-Niagara, and the California and Utah properties, are well priced by destination spa standards. Consider making a week-long stay part of your family's upcoming vacation and you should take home memories (and good habits) to last a lifetime.
