Not everyone can be a contestant on NBC's reality show The Biggest Loser. And so, in an effort to help more Americans get fit, the reality show has added three other resorts to its cadre of wellness retreats. In addition to the famous ranch in Malibu, California (the setting of the TV show), there are now resorts in Niagara Falls, Utah, and suburban Chicago. Though each resort has different amenities, they all share a commitment to exercise, wellness education, and calorie-controlled eating, echoing the ethos of the TV show. Guests may find themselves hiking through a scenic forest in the morning and participating in a boot-camp-style group workout led by an experienced instructor in the afternoon. To fuel those workouts, they enjoy three nutritionally balanced spa meals per day, planned by registered dietitians and cooked by executive chefs. They also learn a wealth of info from daily wellness classes, which cover topics such as menu planning, shopping smart, and eating healthy while traveling. Most resorts also have onsite spas and salons, so guests can treat themselves to soothing massages or haircuts to help complete their makeovers.

"Our brain is designed to realize what we wish, without any minor errors," says Dahn Yoga founder Ilchi Lee. "If you want success, it will create success. If you want happiness or health, it will create them. Anything is possible, as long as negative thoughts and emotions don't interfere." To make this challenging, yet hopeful, philosophy accessible to all, Lee combined the Eastern concept of chi energy with his own brain-management system, developing a distinctive program that unlocks inner peace and sweeps up brain clutter caused by the daily stress of always having to find Waldo. This focus, shared by Body & Brain Holistic Yoga and The Life Yoga, forms the basis of the studio's classes and consultations. Warm-up yoga maneuvers awaken muscles before 30–40 minutes of breathing, stretching, core practice, and meditation—including a signature brain-wave vibration technique that aims to calibrate mental and physical energies. Cooldown exercises ease the body back into quotidian functionality before a 10-minute teatime invites socialization among participants while bolstering pinkie endurance.
