TEANECK, N.J. — A national wellness initiative is launching across the country and Teaneck is joining the MOVEment, thanks to the Teaneck Chamber of Commerce.
NBC and The Biggest Loser are launching The Biggest Loser Community Challenge in February. Teams of four are invited to join this eight-week, online health and wellness community challenge.
The challenge is for people of all fitness levels and is designed to get the community moving, eating better and having fun. Businesses are encouraged to register teams of employees to represent their company in the challenge.
Cost is $100 for a team of four. Past contestants of The Biggest Loser will guide teams through eight weekly challenges. Challengers will also receive weekly motivation and nutrition tips from trainer Dolvett Quince.
Prize draws will be made each week, with over 10,000 prizes to be won across the country.
Participants will earn points for each minute of activity they engage in, as well as additional points for completing weekly tasks and logging additional challenge activities designed to improve nutrition and overall wellness.
Each participant will have access to their own private wellness account and mobile app, where they will journal challenge activities and access weekly health guidance.
Athletes will also be able to track friends and competitors on live leaderboards.
