From birth, when his doctor affectionately called him “big-boned,” Marty Wolff has always struggled with obesity. In 2006, Wolff was selected to participate in the weight loss reality series on NBC, The Biggest Loser. After his eight-month journey on the show, Marty found himself 146 pounds lighter and in love with fellow contestant and now-wife, Amy. Wolff has taken his experiences from The Biggest Loser and created a new health club concept called Square One for people who, like him, live with weight-related struggles. It is his mission to build national awareness of specialized needs for people of size. Wolff is a graduate of Northwest Missouri State University and has taught speech and theater to high school students in the North Kansas City School District.
In this talk, Wolff shares the damage suffered by people who struggle with weight and how we can all take responsibility to fix the situation.
