"Extreme Weight Loss: Destination Boot Camp" Comes to Colorado - The CU Anschutz Health and Wellness Center Begins Transformational Program

AURORA, Colo. (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

A program for anyone looking to experience weight loss “boot camp” is coming to the University of Colorado Anschutz Health and Wellness Center (AHWC) as a one-week destination weight loss boot camp and transformation program.

“Extreme Weight Loss: Destination Boot Camp,” a collaboration between AHWC and Eyeworks USA, is an evidenced-based program inspired by the unscripted series “Extreme Weight Loss,” produced for ABC by Eyeworks USA. This season, the show has participants spending their first three months at AHWC to successfully begin their weight loss journey (the series documents the year-long transformation in 17 people).

Holly Wyatt, MD, medical director at the CU Anschutz Health and Wellness Center and on ”Extreme Weight Loss,” is a guiding force, along with series trainers and transformation specialists Chris and Heidi Powell, in helping the show participants safely lose weight. In her practice at AHWC, Wyatt also works with individuals and small groups to help them realize weight loss and maintenance goals.

“Many of the changes these people make have nothing to do with diet or exercise,” said Wyatt. “We know the most challenging part of losing weight is keeping it off and developing a new way of thinking to keep it off long-term.”

People who take part in “Extreme Weight Loss: Destination Boot Camp” will come to AHWC every day for Phase 1, which is the first week of the weight loss boot camp program, and have hotel accommodations near campus.

“We have 20 years of experience and science backing up the principles we will share at ‘Extreme Weight Loss: Destination Boot Camp’,” said Wyatt. “In addition to looking at nutrition and exercise, we will assess individual metabolic function, sleep and stress levels to give participants a look at what they do well and what they might need to work on.”

During “Extreme Weight Loss: Destination Boot Camp,” participants will be assigned a transformation coach for daily sessions of physical activity, mental exercises and nutrition education. Each also will receive body composition, personalized nutritional analysis and wellness assessments. The program is based on the weight loss principles outlined in “State of Slim,” written by Wyatt and James O. Hill, PhD, AHWC’s executive director.

“State of Slim” principles include identifying your personal reasons for losing weight, focusing on positive aspects of weight loss, creating a supportive environment and developing new habits and rituals to make healthy decisions.

After the first week, participants will head home and have the option to continue the transformation in Phases 2, 3 and 4. They can take part in 15 weekly online classes with their transformation coach. There will also be an online community for support and guidance throughout the year. At the completion of one year, we will invite them back to celebrate their success.

The program will be available to 120 people in the month of October 2014. For more information on the program please call 1-844-404-2008 or go to

“Extreme Weight Loss” airs Tuesday nights 8:00-10:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on the ABC Television Network. It is produced for ABC by Eyeworks USA and is executive produced by JD Roth, Todd A. Nelson, Matt Assmus and Brant Pinvidic.
