What do the highly acclaimed television show The Biggest Loser and the nation's leading seller of therapy and exercise pools have in common? They are partnering for the 11th installment of the series, helping two dozen contestants tackle one of the leading causes of preventable death in the United States, obesity.
Thanks to a generous donation from Endless Pools, Inc. the contestants will have daily access to a custom built Endless Pool, complete with two adjustable speed swim lanes and two underwater treadmills.
Due to the contestants weight, regular water exercise will be key in their early training and essential for injury rehabilitation later in the season. Water's natural buoyancy will facilitate whole-body exercises while cushioning stress on joints and bones, enabling exercises not possible on dry land. Contestants will build cardiovascular endurance while increasing confidence and burning fat.
"As a Certified Athletic Trainer, I'm constantly looking to incorporate the finest equipment in our contestant's daily care. I look forward to using the Endless Pool and incorporating a high level of conditioning to keep our contestants functional!" Sandy K. Athletic Trainer
This marks the second Biggest Loser appearance for Endless Pools, who also participated in Season Two. "Having Endless Pools back for a second season was a natural fit, our trainers love using the Endless Pool as a complement to their training regimen." D Norton, Sponsor Producer "Every year our products help thousands of people manage their weight and stay fit, we're pleased The Biggest Loser will be highlighting the importance of regular water exercise to a larger audience." Mark Langan, Marketing Manager.
The Biggest Loser has become a worldwide hit, airing in over 90 countries since its debut in 2004. The Biggest Loser has grown to become a standalone health and lifestyle brand with tools and products inspired by the show and approved by its doctors and experts.
