Two posts in one day?! That’s right! We have MORE exciting news to announce from The Biggest Loser Resort at Fitness Ridge…please help us in welcoming two new celebrity trainers whom you know and love…
Ramon and Jessica will join forces with former “Biggest Loser” contestants turned Biggest Loser Resort Trainers Sam Poueu and Sione Fa.
There first stop for Ramon and Jessica is our Ivins, Utah resort starting the 2nd week of January for training. As you can gather from their below bios and their hard work, dedication and transformations on “The Biggest Loser”, they will be a great asset to our team. We are very excited to have them!
Ramon Medeiros, at age 27 and weighing 355 pounds, says he is ready to get healthy “and start living the life that I’m supposed to have.” He was born in Berkeley, California and raised in California until the third grade when he moved with his parents and younger sister to Florence, Colorado. Part Hawaiian and part Mexican, Ramon grew up within two cultures in which food played a major role in family gatherings. Though he has struggled with weight his whole life, he got down to 190 pounds in high school by being active in football, baseball and wrestling. He went on to play football at Cornell College and baseball at Fort Lewis College, but he started to gain weight after that without the structure of sports in his life. Ramon was inspired by past season “Biggest Loser” Tongan contestants Sione Fa, Sam Poueu and Koli Palu and looks forward to teaching his family members, who also struggle with weight, how to lead a healthier lifestyles. He is eager to start dating and shopping for clothing in regular clothes stores, and he also hopes to ride roller-coasters and try parasailing once he loses the weight.

He looks fantastic!
Jessica Limpert, says she has a bucket list of activities she can’t participate in just because she is overweight. “I want to cross things off my list because I have done them,” she says, “not because I can’t physically do them.” Jessica was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the oldest of three children. She earned a bachelor’s degree in biology from Westminster College and received her bachelor’s degree in nursing from DeSales University. She didn’t have a weight problem until she left for college, when she gained 80 pounds during her freshman year. Now 26 years old and 254 pounds, Jessica works as a traveling registered nurse and moves every three months. On her feet for 12 to 16 hours a day, her stressful work schedule of day and night shifts has resulted in poor eating habits. Her “aha moment” came in 2010 when she was on a medical mission in Ecuador and felt like she stood out because she was the only one who was obese. She came home from that trip determined to create a better life for herself, which included ending a six-year relationship that she felt wasn’t healthy. Without her weight holding her back, Jessica looks forward to shopping with her mom and sister in the same store, flying comfortably in an airplane, going to amusement parks, running a marathon and crossing everything off her bucket list.
