What does it cost?
Membership to The Biggest Loser Club starts from less than $1 a day* but the price you pay will depend on your commitment to the program – the longer you commit, the cheaper it gets. Unlike other weight loss programs, we have no joining fees. Take a look at our pricing options.
How does it work?
Simple. Once you join The Biggest Loser Club, we ask you a few questions about yourself, including your height and current weight. From that info we:
- calculate your daily calorie target, in other words the amount of calories you should consume per day in order to lose 0.5 to 1kg per week.
- recommend a healthy goal weight for you (but you can choose your own as well).
We’ll also ask you some questions about your diet preferences and the amount of exercise you do so that we can personalise your food and exercise plan.
Once you've answered all of the questions, we'll talk you through your program with a special personalised Welcome Video that introduces all of the key tools you'll use to lose weight including your diary, menu plan and exercise program. If you have any questions regarding fat burning, exercises to lose weight, diet tips or are not sure what to do, you can post a message on The Biggest Loser Club forums or contact our customer service team.
How long do I have to do it for?
This depends on how much weight you have to lose. At a minimum we recommend that you stay with The Club for 12 weeks so that you're introduced to all the key concepts of weight loss. Ideally you'll stay until you've achieved your goal weight and learnt to successfully maintain it.
We'll start by showing you the exercises to lose weight, diet plans and diet tips to achieve rapid weight loss. Weight maintenance requires as much effort as weight loss, and we find that many members keep using The Club well after they achieve their goal weight.
Regardless of how long you stick around for, we'll offer you support, great content and all the tools you need at every stage of your journey.
What food and drinks can I have?
No foods are forbidden on The Biggest Loser Club program as long as you stay within your calorie target, but you’ll soon find healthier foods in sensible portions will give you the fat burning “best bang for your buck”. With access to our healthy recipes and general healthy eating guide, you’ll be able to eat more for less calories and never feel hungry.
We provide lots of meal ideas and recipes to help you improve the quality of your diet. Our menu plans are a great guide if you're not sure what to eat. In keeping with our philosophy that The Biggest Loser Club program is a way of life, our menus include treats such as wine, chocolate and takeaway to help you learn how to include these foods in your diet.
Currently there are five menu plans to choose from:
Simple weight loss – with simple dishes such as steak and veg
Health & wellbeing – with lots of new ideas for people who like to cook
Vegetarian menu – suitable for lacto-ovo vegetarians (those that eat dairy products and eggs)
Meal replacement menu – for those using meal replacements
The Biggest Loser Express menu – a simple menu for those using the Express program
What sort of exercise do I have to do?
You can do whatever exercise you like: dancing, swimming, walking, cycling... But when you first start it's a good idea to follow the balanced exercise plan we put together based on your current fitness and your stated preferences. Your plan will include a range of exercises and easy to follow instructions so that you can lose weight fast. You’ll find that it will build in intensity as you get fitter.
Please note that we do not ask you to exercise as hard or for as long as the contestants on the show – our exercise plans are designed for people losing weight at home. There are currently four exercise programs to choose from:
Gym program – for those with gym memberships
Walk & Tone program – including home workouts and pool sessions
Specialty Programs – a range of programs aimed at improving fitness for popular sports, such as running
Is it private?
Yes. The Biggest Loser Club is private... there are no embarrassing public weigh-ins and your log in gives you your own personal space in The Club that no one else can see.
