Stand the the chance to win 1 of 15 free tickets to a life-changing talk by Dr Greg Venning, Brian Berkman and Elan Lohmann.
Each ticket is valued at R650.
A trifecta of speakers who have transformed their lives towards maximising good health as their new aim includes former restaurant critic and heavyweight, Brian Berkman, corporate digital executive Elan Lohmann who quit smoking and his job to start a health-orientated community and Dr Greg Venning, a certified wellness practitioner. The three share how they changed their lives on Thursday, September 26, 2013 at 8pm at the Pavilion Conference Centre, V&A Clock Tower.
Entitled Upgrade Your Life, the two-hour presentation will hear from SleekGeek founder Elan Lohmann. “I was on a path to a constantly degenerating quality of life with a future of diabetes, lung cancer, lethargy and self-loathing ahead”, he explains adding that with a few simple actions and dedication he is on the path to a vital, energetic life. “It is sad what sedentary creatures we have become chained to desks and surrounded by convenient and mostly poor sources of nutrition. We have created a world in which living a healthy lifestyle is not the norm. It is a self-determined choice one has to make. I have learned the benefits are profound,” he says.
Brian Berkman who shed over 70kg by following a low-carb, high-protein, no sugar or alcohol diet says the decision to package a how-to talk comes from a high demand from people who also want to change: “I lost weight and took my life back from the brink of invasive and costly surgery but I also gave myself the opportunity to live a life free from constant pain which I had told myself was normal,” he says. “My goal in presenting this talk is so that others who also feel dissatisfied with their life can be motivated and given the tools to change.”
Dr Greg Venning, one of two certified wellness professional chiropractors, says he is not like other doctors. “I’m interested in creating health, not treating disease. Medical professionals are taught to treat illness not to create health and my passion is helping people activate human potential and maximise personal performance,” he says. Venning, also a popular speaker and coach, will contextualise Lohmann and Berkmans’ experiences so that people attending the talk will have clear guidelines how they too can change for the better.
While both Berkman and Lohmann’s stories have been extensively reported in the media what people who come to the talk will hear is the detail of what they did to keep themselves motivated to change. Lohmann says people will see and hear first-hand that change, admittedly not easy, is neither impossible nor as difficult as expected.
