The second annual “Biggest Loser” competition is set to begin on November 1st at IMG, just before the onslaught of typical holiday eating. The event runs for 6 weeks, and like the previous event, financial incentives play a role in the competition.
In February of 2011 a total of 62 IMG employees completed the “Biggest Loser” program. You can read here for more details about that competition. This year’s competition will be similar.
The program will kick off with a weigh-in and 3 key physical tests to give each person their starting point. The goal of the IMG contest is to help the employees lose weight and gain a healthier lifestyle through exercise. We will test again at the end of the six weeks to chart each person’s weight loss and their strength and cardio fitness gains.
Steve Smith, Matt Hudson, and myself will be taking the IMG employees through their workouts and offering up simple and effective weight loss advice. Matt Hudson is the newest addition to our personal training staff here at FBD, but he is not new to the “Biggest Loser” style of training.
In 2009 Matt was a big loser. He lost over 200lbs! He began with a bootcamp style workout regimen that I designed for him, and reduced his caloric intake to 2000 calories or less. Since then Matt has picked up 2 personal training certifications, and has been working in the fitness industry over the past year. We know he will have a great perspective for participants that need to lose 40 lbs. or more.
If you are your company are interested in being “big losers”, give me a call. We can definitely help.
