Every Tuesday night thousands of families across the country tune in to watch people drop pounds on "The Biggest Loser", right here on NewsChannel 11. Saturday, The Falls Fitness Club of Lubbock kicked off a local version of the show.
The weight loss extravaganza began Saturday morning with a weigh-in. The contestants then began their first workout. The competition will consist of workouts, nutrition tips, and weekly weigh-ins.
Following Saturday's kick-off, the participants have six weeks to reach their weight loss goals before the finale on March 7th. First, second, and third place prizes will include free memberships to The Falls as well as personal training sessions.
