After a very successful Biggest Loser, the Backrow Recreation Centre are now running the Biggest Loser 2.

The Backrow’s ‘Biggest Loser’ challenge takes place from Monday 6th October 2014 to Friday 28th November 2014 at the Backrow Recreation Centre.  Open to males and females of all fitness abilities (over 18s only) the challenge aims to help the 25 participants get in shape for the summer through exercise and healthy eating.

The challenge will start on Monday 6th October at 8pm when participants will be:

  • Given further information about the challenge
  • Weighed
  • Have their measurements taken (waist, legs, arms etc.)
  • BMI calculated
  • Have a before photo taken*
  • Given suggested diet plan/healthy eating plan

(* the photos will be solely used to show the individual how their body has changed throughout the 8 weeks as an after photo will be taken at the end of the challenge. Consent will be sought to use the photos on our Facebook page).

The first exercise class will be on Wednesday 8th October from 8-9pm.

3 exercise classes per week – Mondays, Wednesday & Fridays from 8-9pm

These will be a mix of circuit training, boot camp and insanity style activities suitable for all fitness abilities.  For example if a participant is not able to do a full press up they will be shown how to do a less intensive press up until such times as they feel their fitness has improved to enable them to attempt a full press up.  Classes will take place either inside the Backrow Hall or outside on the 3G pitch depending on the weather and will be taken by Emmett Stewart.  Participants are encouraged to attend as many classes as possible.  Please ensure to bring water to all classes to ensure you stay hydrated.

Week by week diet/healthy eating plan

Our suggested week by week diet/healthy eating plan will offer tips and guidance on what foods you should and should not be eating while taking part in the challenge.

Become the Backrow’s ‘Biggest Loser’

The participant who loses the biggest percentage of their body weight, not pounds lost, will be crowned the Backrow’s ‘Biggest Loser’ and will win their registration fee back again.
