Because overweight and obese students often feel isolated among their peers in college-based physical activity courses, physical activity programs must find new ways to include this population in their course offerings. This program will present an overview of an innovative approach to physical activity promotion with overweight and obese college students. Participants will see how the popular TV show "The Biggest Loser" can be modified to promote physically active lifestyles with college students.
