NBCUNIVERSAL TELEVISION CONSUMER PRODUCTS GROUP, MYTRAK AND REVEILLE TO LAUNCH THE BIGGEST LOSER SLIM COACH SYSTEM

"The Biggest Loser" returns to NBC on September 20, 2011 at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT)

UNIVERSAL CITY, CA - August 16, 2011 - When the hit NBC reality TV series "The Biggest Loser" returns this fall, the contestants will have a new tool to help them reach their weight loss goals. They will be furnished with The Biggest Loser Slim Coach, which utilizes the MYTRAK Health platform to track movement, exertion and calorie burn, allowing the user to monitor their physical activity throughout the day. This September, this revolutionary technology will be available to show contestants and people all across North America, allowing them to compare their activity levels to the show's contestants, as well as those of their friends and families, seamlessly, from home.

The Biggest Loser Slim Coach powered by MYTRAK is a device that can be worn every day to track physical activity while at home, at work, on the go, as well as at any fitness club automated by MYTRAK. Upon purchasing Slim Coach and subscribing to MYTRAK's online Clubhouse, users are assigned a lifestyle advisor to assist them in setting up their program to get them started on a new path to a healthier and more active lifestyle.

"The Slim Coach provides the most comprehensive, accurate and advanced physical activity tracker available, with tools to plan and track your health and fitness progress," said Kim Niemi, Senior Vice President, NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products Group. "Whether you want to lose weight or achieve new fitness goals, The Slim Coach helps you succeed."

"MYTRAK will take the technology capabilities of life on the ranch to the next level, improving and refining the way the contestants and trainers track caloric burn, plan workouts, motivate to reach daily and long term goals and support living and maintaining an overall healthy lifestyle," said Chad Bennett, Vice President, Brand Development and Production, Reveille. "Our partnership with MYTRAK will ensure that the show remains at the forefront of health-monitoring technology and provides the same tools to the viewer at home that they see on the show."

"The Slim Coach is just like having a personal trainer with you all day long," said Reed Hanoun, President and CEO of MYTRAK Health System Inc. "It will motivate and drive you to live a more active and healthier lifestyle. It can be customized to your goals, offering you instant feedback and expert guidance. It is a formula for success."

The Biggest Loser Slim Coach is licensed through NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products Group. The deal was brokered by Better Work, Inc. and Ladder Up Media.

About The Biggest Loser Slim Coach powered by MYTRAK

The Slim Coach is an adaptive, intelligent feedback computer that is worn every day, analyzing your activity with a set of sophisticated sensors that measure the intensity of your active life and calculates the energy burn to your personal biometrics. The red, yellow and green lights form a Health Circle in the middle of the Slim Coach providing instant feedback on your daily movements and whether you are on pace to reach your targets. At the press of a button, users can obtain data on the calories burned that day and how many more are required to stay on track.

The device also communicates seamlessly with a user's computer and a comprehensive online support network. Data about your daily activity is uploaded to the personalized The Biggest Loser Slim Coach Dashboard, which charts your progress, keeping you motivated and on track.
