THE BIGGEST LOSER RESORT - NIAGARA TO OPEN MAY, 2012

The Biggest Loser Resort Brings Its Award-winning Immersive Weight-Loss Program to Western New York Inspired by Hit NBC Series "The Biggest Loser"

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. -- February 10, 2012 - NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products Group and Fitness Ridge Worldwide, the parent entity of The Biggest Loser Resort, today announced that it will open its third destination resort location this spring in western New York. The Biggest Loser Resort - Niagara will open in May, 2012 in Java, N.Y., and will offer the same award-winning, results-oriented program that guests have come to expect and enjoy at the company's other two locations in Malibu, Calif., and Ivins, Utah. The announcement was made today by Kim Niemi, Senior Vice President, NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products Group and Larry Bond, CEO of Fitness Ridge Worldwide.

In connection with the announcement, Fitness Ridge Worldwide is partnering with The Snyder Corp. to bring the next Biggest Loser Resort to the Beaver Hollow Conference Center as part of a multi-million dollar expansion program at that facility.

The Biggest Loser Resorts are licensed through NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products and Reveille LLC.

The Biggest Loser Resorts cater to individuals of all ages and fitness levels and focus on exercise, healthy nutrition and education - inspired by what contestants experience on NBC's hit weight-loss series "The Biggest Loser" during their time on the show. Spas of America recently recognized The Biggest Loser Resort in Utah as the #1 spa in the United States. Spa magazine also recognized the resort as the "Best Weight Loss Spa" in North America and, in addition, the location has been a five-time SpaFinder winner and globally acknowledged for these achievements.

"The Biggest Loser" airs Tuesdays on NBC (8-9 p.m. ET).

"We are incredibly proud of what The Biggest Loser Resort has come to mean for so many individuals," said Niemi. "These award-winning 'Biggest Loser' branded resorts give people a great chance to focus on their personal health and wellness and provide the tools needed to really commit to a healthy lifestyle."

"Expanding to New York is a critical step for us and we are thrilled to partner with Snyder Corp., a company headed by one of the great American families of our time," said Bond. "The growth seen by our resorts has been explosive. We are proud that our program has been universally embraced as the best weight-loss spa in the business. This new location that is strategically located to access both the Northeast U.S. and Eastern Canadian markets will aid us in our quest to help society conquer weight-related challenges and chronic illnesses linked to obesity such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and certain cancers."

Sandra Snyder Schoellkopf, Executive VP/Marketing for Snyder Corporation said, "This is a win-win for Western New York both in expanding business and also in helping to improve health and wellness in our community. As a leading corporate conference center, now with The Biggest Loser Resorts we are able to accommodate employers with a world-renowned program that seamlessly integrates health and wellness into their business meetings. In doing so, companies will improve the health of their employees and their employees will enjoy a fun weight-loss experience provided by the experts at The Biggest Loser Resorts."

Monica Austin, Senior Vice President, Business and Brand Development, Reveille added, "Recognizing how much people juggle, The Biggest Loser Resorts have become a great vacation destination to focus on one's own health and well-being. By having more resort locations, we hope to make it easier for people to enjoy the experiences in gorgeous settings that might be closer to their homes."

The Biggest Loser Resort - Niagara is set on a pristine and scenic 300-acre private location and includes a conference center, spa and swimming pool and state-of-the-art fitness facilities. The program is renowned for its focus on emotional support and positive energy embodied in the evening bonfire gatherings for guests.
