When 180-Degree Fitness owner Adrian Delorey first launched the centre's Biggest Loser Ottawa program the goal was to help clients get fitter and healthier by modifying their lifestyles.

Five years later, more than 200 people have benfitted from the progam with a total weight loss of more than 4,000 lbs.

The latest Biggest Loser class set a new standard by shedding a combined total of 680 lbs. in 12 weeks. That's an average of nearly 30 lbs. per peson.

The biggest loser of the 10th edition of Biggest Loser Ottawa was Deb Morrision who lost 44 lbs. and 38 inches.

Deb Morrison lost 44 lbs and 38 inches in 12 weeks duriing the 10th edition of Biggest Loser Ottawa.

"It's absolutely the best thing I've ever done for myself," says Morrison. "It was an absolute boot camp and the kick in the pants that I needed to get started. It completely changed the way I eat, the way I look at myself and the way I look at fitness and nutrition."

Just like the popular television program from which the name comes from, Biggest Loser Ottawa takes a holisitc approach to wieght loss and fitness. It combines creative workouts conducted by certified trainers, nutritional seminars, and cooking and shopping classes, all done in a group setting.

"We don't push any pills, powders or potions," says Delorey. "We educate people. We inspire them and we support them. It's all about a group of people working towards a common goal. The synergy is amazing."

Morrison credits the support of her fellow Biggest Loser members with achieving the results she did.

"It's not just a fitness program where you come in and go to the gym and then leave and nobody cares about you. This is really like having a whole new family, not just the trainers but all the people in the group," says Morrision.

As for any advice she might give someone cosidering signing up for the next Biggest Loser session?

"Run don't walk and sign yourself up because you're not going to regret it," enthuses Morrison.

Biggest Loser 11 starts on Sept. 14. The program is 12 weeks long and is designed for individuals who want to lose 30 to 100 lbs. Anyone who wants to lose more than 100 lbs can get three sessions for the cost of one.

There are three workout sessions a week, plus seminars and workshops on nutrition, self-motivation, grocery shopping and ordering off a menu at a restaurant.

There are also weekly group challenges and team buiding sessions.
