SPRI Products congratulates "The Biggest Loser" (On Tuesday nights 8/7c on NBC) Season 6 Winner, Michelle Aguilar.

Libertyville, Ill. – Dec. 17, 2008

SPRI Products, a GAIAM company and a leading distributor of rubberized resistance products and fitness accessories, is proud to congratulate Michelle Aguilar, this season's winner of NBC-TV's hit series, “The Biggest Loser.” During the show, the 26-year-old Aguilar shed an incredible 110 pounds – 45% of her starting weight of 242 pounds – which earned her the grand prize of $250,000.

Every season for the past six years of the reality show, SPRI Products have helped contestants achieve remarkable weight loss and physical transformation.

Aguilar, and all show participants, are challenged by rigorous sweat sessions with numerous SPRI Products, including rubberized tubing and bands, medicine balls, dumbbells and weighted bars, stability balls, plyometric boxes, aquatic tools and much more. Upon leaving the show, individuals take home a variety of SPRI exercise accessories to help continue their progress.

“As the pioneer of rubberized resistance training, we've been the professional's choice in health clubs and among personal trainers,” said Herb Flentye, CEO of SPRI. “It is inspiring to be the preferred fitness accessory on such a motivational program where people experience tremendous life change.”
