The "Biggest Loser" will bring its weight loss camp to the Chicago suburbs.
Fitness Ridge Worldwide LLC, the Los Angeles company that runs the weight loss resorts fashioned around the Biggest Loser show, is expected to announce today that it will open its fourth location in May at the Eaglewood Resort & Spa in Itasca, according to Crain's Chicago Business.
"Each of our weight loss resorts offers the same high-quality fitness program that promotes a balanced overall wellness strategy through fitness, nutrition, and wellness education, spa cuisine, relaxation, and camaraderie with your fellow guests that you simply won’t experience anywhere else," according to the Biggest Loser Resort website.
Crain's Business reports the weekly rate for the boot camp — and a double-occupancy room at the resort — will be $2,595. The resort in Itasca is currently taking reservations for ages 14 years old and older, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The company hopes to use the facility to offers corporate wellness programs where training and retreats are held "to facilitate teambuilding while promoting a healthy lifestyle," according to the Tribune.
Itasca is located about 27 miles southeast of Algonquin and is 20 minutes from O'Hare International Airport.
