Body Transformation Challenge Launches Nationwide – WHO will be the BIGGEST Loser?

( The Biggest Loser television series has inspired millions to lose weight and take control of their health and wellbeing.

And now for the fourth year running, Body Blueprint Personal Training is launching their own version of the Biggest Loser – a 12 week challenge which is being made available nationwide as a virtual workout programme.

The Biggest Loser 12 week challenge has been designed by Mark Woodgate, founder of Body Personal Training based in Tauranga.

Commencing Monday 8th September the Biggest Loser 12 Week Challenge will not only enable participants to lose weight, it will provide them with strategies to keep the weight off for good.

According to Mark, New Zealand is ranked as the 7th most obese nation in the world – with 20.9% of the population classified as obese. In August 2013 the NZ Ministry of Health reported that obesity is likely to surpass smoking as the main risk factor for death and disease in New Zealand within 3 years.

“These statistics are a wake up call that we need to start taking responsibility for our health. Excess weight is contributing to range of health problems – cardiovascular disease, diabetes and depression.”

Unlike the TV version of the Biggest Loser, participants will NOT need to spend copious hours working out. In fact, the total exercise requirement is less than 4 hours per week & participants can choose to exercise at their local gym or from home. When combined with the Biggest Loser nutrition plan, participants can expect to lose up to 1kg per week.

Says Mark, “Over the years I’ve witnessed some amazing transformations, and I’m not just talking about the physical changes, I’m talking about the mental and emotional changes as well.

By that I mean the numerous clients who have lost weight and regained their confidence and self esteem, clients who are no longer classified as diabetic or need to take blood pressure medication.

Sometimes it’s the simple things such as being able to fit into your favourite clothes, the knowledge that you can enjoy your favourite foods from time to time without the guilt, or having the energy to keep up with your kids – that’s what makes what I do so incredibly rewarding…”

The Biggest Loser 12 Week Challenge is available nationwide and can be downloaded here for only $67.

Participants living in Papamoa and surrounding areas can choose to enter into the 12 week weight loss competition and prizes will be awarded to the person(s) who loses the greatest percentage of body weight.

For workplaces that decide to hold their own Biggest Loser 12 Week Challenge, Mark is offering to put up the cash for the winner(s)
