Summer is the Season of Change for Former Contestants
of NBC’S hit-reality show, “The Biggest Loser”
On NBC’s reality show ‘The Biggest Loser,’ we learned firsthand how personal responsibility and poor health habits effect our children’s’ lives. The Summer Fit Series sets the tone for healthy lifestyles, and helps parents and children stay on task—both mentally and physically. It helps keep kids motivated, builds self-esteem and is a much-needed educational tool for every home in America.”

Study after study shows these alarming facts to be true:
• All students experience learning loss during the summer
• Children gain weight 3 times faster during the summer then during the school year
• Students who are more fit perform better in school and score higher on standardized tests
We know that summer is the best time to create and encourage healthy habits for the entire family. Academics, fitness, healthy eating and social skills are all critical factors in creating healthy family lifestyles and successful students—and now is the time to help children and parents plan for success at the dinner table, and in the classroom.
Marci, Courtney, Jay and Jen, all former contestants on the hit show “The Biggest Loser,” now understand the importance of family habits and the critical role they play in helping kids make healthy lifestyle choices. Decisions made in the home influence behavior in all areas of children’s lives: academic performance, physical activity and values. “It is the year of the parent,” says former Biggest Loser Jay Jacobs. “Sedentary lifestyles, weight issues and unhealthy habits need to be addressed at home. Children will include healthy habits as part of their everyday life if they understand what being healthy actually means, and this ultimately comes from parents and caregivers. We love what 'The Biggest Loser,' stands for and the positive impact it’s had on people around the world. In the spirit of creating healthy lives, if today’s young parents are given the right tools to work with, we’ll all be the better for it."
Schedule a phone or blog interview with Jay Jacobs to discuss why “Summer is the Season of Change” and why the Summer Fit Activity book series is the ideal resource to give parents and children the resources and guidance to create healthy family lifestyles during the summer. All interviews supported with a Summer Fit Activity Book Giveaway.
