Good news for fatties: Biggest Loser weight-loss resort now open

Flabby fans of The Biggest Loser can now enjoy the reality show experience without the reality show. In a partnership with NBC Universal, Utah’s Fitness Ridge Resort & Spa has been rebranded as The Biggest Loser Resort at Fitness Ridge. For $2,000 per week, portly members of the public can now enjoy the same rigorous routines that helps the reality-show contestants shed unwanted pounds. The program includes monitored exercise regiments, nutrition education, etc, etc and so on and so forth.

Two quibbles.

1) The resort’s mantra:


“Expand”? Really?!

2) I understand that many web ads are inserted automatically, but someone should make a call about this:


‘Biggest Loser’ now a resort — chicagotribune.com.
