THOSE needing a little inspiration to lose the love handles ahead of winter should head down to Bargara tomorrow morning and pick up handy fitness tips and tricks from 2012 Biggest Loser winner, Margie Cummins.

Margie, who lost a whopping 73kg on the popular reality television show, has now gone on to share her weight-loss journey with others through her mobile training business, hosting boot camps across Brisbane.

She has now been invited by a Wide Bay fitness group to host a one-hour sweat session on the oval near Nielson Park tomorrow at 7.30am.

"It will basically involve body weight exercises, a bit of cardio to burn calories and get everyone on their way to losing weight and getting fit," Margie said.

Margie said a lot had happened since being crowned the weight-loss champion more than one year ago.

"It's been a bit of a rollercoaster ride," she said.

"I've enjoyed meeting new people and living a great, healthy life."

The weight-loss star said while she had put on 15kg since leaving the Biggest Loser camp, she hadn't lost her focus.

"I'm just working at getting it off slowly and not as quick as when I was in the house," she said.

"People realise I am a normal person and make mistakes - it's about getting back on track."

Margie is no stranger to the rum city, having been to the region many times visiting family.

"I love Bargara - I haven't been there for years," she said.

While the 65 boot camp places have already been filled, Margie said she would still be able to say a quick hello after the workout.

Ollie Costello, who is part of the group that brought Margie to town, said the members were looking forward to the morning class.

"It's also like a bit of a bonding session," she said.

Miss Costello has lost 8kg and 52cm in the past 12 months doing the Michelle Bridges 12-Week Body Transformation (12WBT), and said the group's members would travel from Hervey Bay and Maryborough for the Sunday boot camp.

"Margie came to Hervey Bay about four weeks ago," she said.

"We met her when we were down at a 12WBT finale in Brisbane."
