My gym has a "Biggest Winner" program starting. Would it be a good idea?

    The gym I go to have a "Biggest Winner" group program starting next week and I'm thinking of doing it. The group will have a personal trainer and nutritionist, have about 6 different types of exercise from water to pilaties, free weights, cardio, and more.

    I have seen in years past a few people make big progress and others do nothing. I am also in the mood and need now to get a trainer and get to the next level of exercise. I have been at a stand still the past three months and need help to get moving again in the right direction.

    Has anyone else done a program like this in their gym? It is for 12 weeks and cost $295. Yes it is awfully expensince but I'm thinking I could never get all the classes and trainers twice a week for that price.

    Advice is greatly appreciated.

    It sounds like a pretty reasonable price for a good amount of attention.

    I'm not exactly sure what the goal of a "Biggest Winner" program would be (most muscle gain?), but I would talk to whoever is running the program and make sure that its aims and your aims are pretty closely aligned. Sometimes people running a promotion can get caught up in doing whatever makes the most sense for them and the institution they work for. You should make clear from the start what you want to achieve and get them to acknowledge it before you pay up.

    Sounds awesome.. I'd do it! We don't have anything like that at our YMCA, but since I'm on the advisory board, I'll have to mention it. I like the concept and I agree, not that expensive for the potential rewards!

    It is a remake of "The Biggest Loser" so they get all your measurements and keep track of your progress. And the one losing the most percentage gets a year membership for free.

    I am thinking of asking them more about it. They have been doing this for over 3 years now and always a full group.

    Sounds like it's worth serious consideration. Just don't be shy about asking any questions.
