FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA – This month hit reality show “The Biggest Loser” returns to television after a 4-year hiatus.

The program has revamped itself to gives contestants a 360-degree view of what it takes to make a serious, healthy lifestyle change. The new season will aim to improve contestant’s quality of life as well as their waistlines. Even though fitness is one component of a healthy revival, the shows focal point are the gym floors. Decked out with the latest cardio equipment, barbells, ropes and the customary black rubber floors, the gym becomes the backdrop to the emotional journey of the contestants. The “Biggest Loser” gym covers 15,000 square feet and contains all of the equipment needed for contestants to get into shape.
With the return of host Bob Harper, the show has brought in new trainers Steve Cook and Erica Lugo to guide contestants toward a healthier lifestyle from every level. Contestants now work with doctors, life coaches, and nutritionists to develop individualized routines and meal plans, which will be closely monitored for safety.
