The Biggest Loser, which debuts is second season in September, has spawned two workout videos. One will be released around the time of the second season’s debut; the other will hit stores in 2006. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the videos “will feature many of the faces from the show, including celebrity trainer Bob Harper.”

Lions Gate Entertainment president Steve Beeks said, “The workout video takes the issue of being overweight and gives real people real solutions to accomplish their weight-loss goals.”
