Following the basic concept of TV’s “Biggest Loser,” the JCC’s Largest Loser was a healthy, competitive challenge that encouraged participants to lose weight through exercise and healthy eating, guided by on-staff JCC experts such as personal trainers and a registered dietitian, JCC officials said.
The Blue Team lost a total of 222.8 pounds; the Red Team is 151.8 pounds lighter, and the Shadow Team dropped 118.2 pounds. All Blue team members received makeovers from Progressions Salon, 214 Amity Road, Woodbridge.
