'The Biggest Loser' Resort Opening in Malibu
A "Biggest Loser" weight-loss resort is opening in Malibu on Sept. 26.
The Biggest Loser Resort at Fitness Ridge Malibu is the second property branded by the show, which already has its name on a popular Fitness Ridge resort in Ivins, Utah.
Rates in Malibu are from $2,295 to $2,695 per week, with discounts for those who do four weeks.
Guests stay in new cabins and the program includes "hiking, stimulating cardio and stretch classes, delectable spa cuisine, and practical education to help you succeed," according to the resort's website.
The idea is healthy lifestyle. Meals are calorie-controlled and there is no white sugar, coffee or booze allowed, reports USA Today.
Kim Niemi, a senior vice president for NBC Universal Television Group, tells the newspaper the spas are "a natural extension" of the show, a place where people can get the Loser experience without cameras rolling.
The resorts have personal trainers, but Jillian Michaels is not one of them.
Don't be surprised if the 160-acre Malibu property, located in hills above the Pacific, makes an appearance on the TV show like the Utah resort did.
