The Biggest Loser Resort Chicago will open September 6 in the Hilton Indian Lakes Resort & Spa in Chicago, IL and The Biggest Loser Resort at The Villas of Amelia Island Plantation will open October 18 in Jacksonville, FL.

The Biggest Loser Resort provides a results-oriented program designed to encourage, inspire and empower guests to reach and maintain their lifestyle goals.

The world-class fitness and wellness destination, The Biggest Loser Resort, provides a results-oriented program designed to encourage, inspire and empower guests to reach and maintain their lifestyle goals. Inspired by NBC's television show, The Biggest Loser, The Biggest Loser Resort's highly certified team of professional coaches and counselors combine all five pillars of what makes the program unique and effective: fitness, nutrition, education, relaxation and camaraderie, to help empower guests to successfully meet and exceed their goals.

"The Biggest Loser Resort is excited to expand our nationally recognized program to Chicago and Jacksonville," said Lesley Carey, President of The Biggest Loser Resort. "Our comprehensive health and wellness program is designed to take advantage of and highlight each destination, and both locations offer numerous right-out-your-door activities and opportunities to deliver an incomparable wellness experience."

As a premier destination-based health and wellness program for adults of all ages, The Biggest Loser Resort's comprehensive program provides a balanced plan that encourages and educates guests to make necessary lifestyle changes while also offering the tools to sustain a healthy diet and maintain a realistic workout regimen post-camp. The experienced team of coaches and counselors are all nationally certified or hold degrees in their respective fields and provide guests with motivation, personal attention and confidence needed to live a healthier life.

Although activities will vary per location, fitness classes typically include hikes, kickboxing, circuit training, H2O aerobics and total toning classes while cooking demonstrations and education classes typically include topics such as wellness education and healthy meal preparation. The Biggest Loser Resort Chicago will offer outdoor excursions to the beach for cardio and strength training and running stairs at a nearby park, while guests of The Biggest Loser Resort at The Villas of Amelia Island Plantation will be able to kayak and paddleboard through the island's preserved marshlands as part of their exercise routine. What guests may not expect during the program is the bond they will form with other like-minded guests as they surpass challenges together that are both physical and mental.

Programs at The Biggest Loser Resort Chicago at Hilton Indian Resorts & Spa and The Biggest Loser Resort at The Villas of Amelia Island Plantation will range from multiples of seven-day packages. Mini-packages and corporate team building packages are also available as well through the resort's "Town Program," where guests can attend the program in its entirety alongside other guests throughout the day, without staying at the hotel overnight. This program is a popular option for locally based guests that are still able to dedicate themselves to the full schedule. The unique "resort within a resort" model allows access to numerous amenities not available at other Biggest Loser Resort locations, such as a championship golf course and much more.

The Biggest Loser Resort Chicago will be located at 250 West Schick Road, Bloomingdale, IL 60108.

The Biggest Loser Resort at The Villas of Amelia Island Plantation will be located at 39 Beach Lagoon Road, Amelia Island, FL 32034.
