Lisa Rambo of The Biggest Loser recently shared her thoughts about leaving the popular NBC series and how she’s paid her health forward to others.
Last week on The Biggest Loser, high-school special education assistant Lisa Rambo saw her time on the popular weight loss series come to an end after working hard to change her life for the better. As a member of trainer Dolvett Quince’s Red Team, Lisa survived the first five weeks of Season 14 long enough for The Biggest Loser to leave a lasting impact on her lifestyle.
Although Lisa’s primary motivation for going on The Biggest Loser was to be a healthy and a good role model for her four children, Rambo also wanted to be a healthier leader for her students.
So, how has Lisa’s experience on The Biggest Loser allowed her to give back to her students and their health and wellness program?
“Making healthier choices in our classroom, getting our students moving, and finding things that they love,” Rambo told The Deadbolt following her elimination. “That’s the one thing that Dolvett said from day one, was to fall in love with this process and what do you love about this process?”
After watching Jillian’s White Team leave the ranch one-by-one early in the season, Lisa focused on her own journey while also helping her team through five weeks of competition.
As soon as Lisa entered The Biggest Loser gym, however, the impact was immediate. Now that she’s home, it’s all about paying it forward.
“I remember getting on the spin bike right away and [Dolvett] asking, ‘Do you love this to do it at home?’ It’s the same way with my students and my kids, what you love and let’s do this. It’s exposing our students to more ways to move, like swimming and bowling, falling in love with it and then wanting to do it. It’s not a chore. Working out doesn’t have to be a chore.”
With a new and improved outlook on health and lifestyle, The Biggest Loser has had a major positive ripple effect on her job and home-life with her family.
“Being on The Biggest Loser really empowered me,” Rambo added to The Deadbolt. “I came home stronger and more complete and more whole. I came back ready to win this. When I left the ranch I looked at my team and I said you’d better work hard because I’m going to go home and work twice as hard, and I did.”
The Biggest Loser airs Monday nights at 8/7c on NBC.
