NBC Biggest Loser contestant Dane Patterson, Mesa Arizona
Dane is the classic offensive lineman who played in high school and college, and was told to eat big and be big or get cut from the football team. In recent years it has been quite the opposite; he has been told to diet and lose weight or die a young death.
Just five years ago Dane was a lean, mean machine, but since switching to that infamous desk job, he has found himself an obese 412 pounds.

“The HIT center is the closest thing to the Biggest Loser Ranch that I have found. Getting to work out at the HIT center makes me feel like I never left.” “The health problems that I had (diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol) were all reduced or eliminated by losing weight.” “I did this not only myself, but for my family. Six lives, not just one, have been changed forever.”
-Blaine Cotter lost over 100 pounds
When I started I was an out of shape blob. After only 6 weeks of training, I was able to run the Pat Tillman Charity run. By the end of July, I felt like I was in the best shape of my life. Every staff member I have worked with has been friendly yet dedicated to make me push my body to where it needs to be. The Hit Center has truly given me the best workouts of my life.
-Dennis Harvan lost 18 pounds of fat and gained over 9 pounds of muscle
I’ve been trying to lose weight for years by going to a conventional gym and receiving that ‘one-size-fits-all’ service. No one knew anything about me other than I showed up three times a week and worked out for half an hour in a gym that was packed with people. No one ever tested my metabolic rate or anabolic threshold. I would never have wasted my time there if I had known about the HIT Center.
