Rothco helps "The Biggest Loser" get Combat Tested by the U.S. Marines

This past Tuesday on NBC one of TV's most popular shows, The Biggest Loser traveled to the U.S. Marine Corps base at Camp Pendleton where they received rigorous training my Marine Corps instructors. While there, they did some extreme marching, participated in Marine style physical training, woke up each day at 5 am and finished off with a Marine Corps obstacle course.

Below is a video of the contestants first arriving at Camp Pendleton and making their first extensive hike through the base:

All in all, the 11 contestants held up quite well given the demanding conditions. Part of the reason for that may have been the rugged Rothco Battle Dress Uniforms the contestants wore that were supplied by Rothco partner Vermont's Barre Army Navy. The Biggest Loser participants wore both our City Camouflage and Sky Blue Camouflage military fatigues as well as Rothco Fatigue Caps, Web Belts, Cushion Sole Socks and Thermals. Despite all the rigors the contestants were put through, their Rothco uniforms held up throughout the week of training. Even Biggest Loser trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels got into the act wearing military physical training gear and ranting at their teams like drill sergeants.

Here Rothco's Battle Dress Uniforms are put through the ultimate test, a Marine Corps obstacle course:

Rothco military clothing is tough and combat tested, but it's not just for military use. It makes great workwear, outdoor and adventure clothing and even athletic wear. Rothco partner Pure Power Boot Camp use Rothco's Vintage Paratrooper Fatigues to outfit their "recruits". Whatever you plan on using them for, Rothco's military, outdoor and fashion clothing is combat tested and ready for extreme adventure.

Good luck in all your athletic pursuits and adventures!! See below for more pictures from the episode.
