If you watched Season 7 of NBC’s “The Biggest Loser”, then you definitely recognize both Sione & Filipe Fa, cousins who made the Blue Team. The Fa boys quickly made their way into our hearts as we cheered for their success every week.
They first stepped on the scale weighing in at a combined weight of 736 pounds. After months of sweat, tears, pain, and a lot of hard work, both Sione and Filipe each lost over 130 pounds. They were healthier, in-shape and motivated to live healthier lives.
Since the show, Sione went on to become a personal trainer with us at The Biggest Loser Resort in Ivins, Utah. He’s maintained his weight loss and healthy lifestyle for the past four years, while teaching our guests and inspiring people all around the world. Filipe unfortunately found himself falling back into old ‘unhealthy’ lifestyle habits – eating late, eating often, and eating unhealthy. After regaining weight he worked so hard to lose, he shyed away from working out and going to the gym in embarrassment. “I was so embarrassed that I had gained back ALL of my weight, and more”, Filipe shares.
Now, Filipe has teamed back up with his cousin Sione and Walgreens “Way to Well” in a mission to lose weight and get back on track to living a healthy life. “This time I’m doing it for my children. This time it’s for my family!” expresses Filipe.
We invite you to join us as we share Filipe’s 3 1/2 month weight loss journey as he gets trained by Sione at The Biggest Loser Resort!
