Certified trainers will offer fans of the show real life exercise training based on the fitness programmes used on the reality show, which features overweight contestants challenging themselves to lose weight and adopt healthier lifestyles while competing for a cash prize.

To commemorate the launch, the AFAA will be conducting The Biggest Loser Live Training Workout Day, a free live workout session to be held online on July 18 from 9am to 3:30pm PT.

The online session will feature a series of 20-minute workouts designed for both enthusiasts and beginners.

"We really encourage everyone in America to seize this opportunity to work out live with an AFAA certified fitness professional and enjoy these free exercise sessions."
