Gary Marino is Generation Excel’s founder, an author, activist, film maker, motivational speaker and media spokesman who encourages people to “achieve health and wellness at any weight and never give up the fight.”
Back in 2001 two things were probably unimaginable to most Americans: first that America’s obesity epidemic would rage so out of control it would become front page news with reality television shows, national weight loss competitions, Presidential initiatives and daily media stories.
Second, that a former 397 pound food addict named Gary Marino would lose 150 pounds and emerge as national media spokesman for inspiring people to embrace their health. But in 2004, Gary – perhaps the most unlikely person ever – would do just that by launching the country’s first ever cross country health & wellness walk called the “Million Calorie March.” A daunting 1,200-mile trek from Florida to Boston with a kickoff on national television, sponsors, a road crew and a camera crew in tow, “the March” would become a regular segment on ABC’s “Live with Regis & Kelly” and reach over 70 million people via FOX News, People Magazine, USA Today and scores of radio stations across the country.
Gary’s new speaking presentation “Vision Unleashed” is a motivational, informative and downright funny look at the process of:
- Getting ideas out of your head and into reality
- The crucial step of putting together the right TEAM
- The Importance of collaborating, team work and team building
- Understanding how objectivity is as important to success as creativity
- Embracing the massive learning curve and never giving up.
