GUNTERSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A national contestant for the NBC hit show, The Biggest Loser, was in Guntersville Friday night.

Vencent "Big Vinny" Van-Zant Hickerson played with his band Trailer Choir at the Guntersville hot spot, Somewhere on the Lake.

Big Vinny came in third last year on the show, losing 200 pounds.

He said being on the show did more than just change his life, it saved it.

Fitness is now a part of Big Vinny's everyday life.

"I'm somebody that was stuck at a point where I was 453 pounds and there was no way I was ever going to lose the weight, according to my doctors.  And I went and done it.  And you can go do it too, but you just have to be willing to go out and put in the work.  You know it takes a lot of sweat, a lot of time," said Hickerson.

He held a mini boot camp at Bender's Gym in Guntersville Saturday at 11 a.m.
