8:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
All weight-loss surgery patients and those in the process of preparing for surgery are invited
Keynote Speaker – Marty Wolff
Marty Wolff was born and raised in Council Bluffs, Iowa. From birth, when his doctor affectionately called him “big-boned”, Marty has always struggled with obesity. A graduate of Northwest Missouri State University in 2003, Marty then taught Speech and Theatre to high school students of all grade levels in the North Kansas City School District. In 2006, Marty 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, Amy. The married couple now live in Omaha with their three-year-old son, Blaine, and their two French Bulldogs, Tank and Lovie. Marty has taken his experiences from The Biggest Loser and created a new health club concept called SQUARE ONE for people in Omaha who, like him, live with weight-related struggles. It is Marty’s mission to build national awareness of the specialized needs for People of Size.
