Winner of NBC's Season Eight's The Biggest Loser
and The Biggest Loser Ever

Danny Cahill always struggled with his weight. As a sophomore in high school he devised a plan, stuck with it, and worked hard to lose 75 pounds over the summer. Danny found his passion and began his dream by joining a Rock & Roll band after righting his life! However, after high school and a few years in college, his weight steadily increased throughout the years to, at his heaviest point, over 450 pounds. He then put his dream on a shelf and began to take care of everything EXCEPT himself!

Role Model

Danny coached his son’s football team and wanted to be able to do more with his children, but he was just physically too big to be the husband and father his family deserved! One evening, his outlook on his life changed when his found his “Why.” His daughter came to him at 7 years old and said “Daddy, You are my hero, and I want to be just like you! I want a belly just like yours!” This was a nightmare because his waist had grown to over 69 inches! What kind of role model was he being to his family?

The Biggest Loser

Danny wanted to win The Biggest Loser to save him from this unhealthy lifestyle. He did not want to leave his wife and children early in life. Originally from Midwest City, Oklahoma, Danny and his family live in Broken Arrow (near Tulsa), Oklahoma. Danny is an accomplished musician, having played in several well known groups over the years.

Dream & Achieve!

Danny Cahill’s life was a mess. The former professional musician with big dreams had grown to almost 450 pounds while sitting behind a desk and placing his dreams on a shelf to take care of everyone else. His debt grew, his weight grew, his helplessness grew…grew so big that there seemed to be no way out. Then he decided to change his mind. He decided to make a goal…not just any goal, but the largest goal he could ever think of – He would get on NBC’s Reality Show “The Biggest Loser”…AND WIN! He stood up in front of 60 class mates and made a bold statement! “I am going to get on that show…And I am going to win it! I will lose more weight that anyone else and be THE BIGGEST LOSER EVER!” This statement was made 1 year before being chosen for the show out of more than 500,000 entrants.

anny Cahill's life was a mess. The former professional musician with big dreams had grown to almost 460 pounds while he sat behind a desk, placing his dreams on a shelf to take care of everything but himself.

Testimonials

  • Danny’s comments were both inspiring and challenging. His encouragement to “lose your quit” really resonated with our Operators and challenged them to keep working toward their BHAG’s (big hairy audacious goals.) Danny’s has a great ability to connect with people…so many people can relate to his struggles and stand in amazement at what he accomplished.
