FAQ

What is The Biggest Loser Community Challenge?

The Biggest Loser Community Challenge is a fun, interactive journey to better health. The Company vs Company Challenge is for all fitness levels! It is not a weight loss challenge. This online wellness competition helps individuals reach their health goals by focusing on motivation, activity and nutrition (side effects may include weight loss!).

Participants will choose a Challenge Guide from a range of past contestants. Guides will introduce the challenge each week as they reflect on their experience on the show and share tips and tricks that work for them. Challenges will focus on a range of wellness topics, such as activity and nutrition. Participants will also receive motivation and nutrition tips from Dolvett Quince throughout each week of the challenge!

To earn points for the team, participants will log into the web or app to journal challenge activities. Weekly challenge activities include completing the weekly task, journaling weight (privately) and updating their motivation. Participants will also earn points for daily activities, including journaling minutes of activity, servings of fruit and vegetables and cups of water.

Prizes winners will be determined based on participation and will not be determined based on points.

Are there weigh-ins? Is weight information kept confidential or is it part of the challenge?

Because The Biggest Loser Community Challenge is focused on Wellness, not weight loss, there are no weigh-ins in this challenge. Weight information is completely private. Individuals earn points for logging their weight weekly in the challenge portal, but it is not shared. The points earned are for the act of logging the weight, participants DO NOT earn points for weight loss. Weight loss is a great bonus for those with a goal of losing weight, but is not the focus of this challenge.
