The Biggest Loser® Comes to Town

Did you know that we have our own version of The Biggest Loser® program, just like you see on national TV? Local personal trainer Sharon Thompson, CPT and founder of Thompson Training, has been selected by NBC-TV and The Biggest Loser® producers to head up an exciting contest that mirrors the popular TV show.  The “Biggest Loser® Live Training” program is being produced in conjunction with the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA).

Just like on the show, the ultimate goal is to lose weight through exercise, nutrition and lifestyle changes.  Thompson has created a 12-week program featuring face-to-face training and online live workouts. Her workouts incorporate weight training, kickboxing and yoga, and the program includes nutrition guidance, meal plans and recipes. Participants will receive an official The Biggest Loser® T-shirt and other promotional items along with the chance to win a “grand prize” at the end of the 12-week program.

The overall challenge winner will be determined by percentage of body weight reduced. Interested participants may sign up online or at Full Throttle Fitness locations in Folsom, El Dorado Hills and Shingle Springs. Find out more at
