Big Boys and Big Girls
Over the last few months there has been some publicity about a weight loss programme with a difference. TVNZ and Maori TV have run stories over the last two weeks detailing some of the success these programmes have brought to morbidly obese people in Auckland. On channel one, Tangata Pasifika will run another story this Thursday and replayed again on Sunday morning following the efforts of the Genetics Gym team in helping people not only changing their lives but saving their lives.
CornerStone Recruitment is a major supporter of the programme and will continue to work with Buck Stowers as he grows the Big Boys and Big Girls programme in New Zealand. I have been a witness to the phenomenal weight loss achieved by these people and the bond developed within the team.
Check out the link to see the 20/20 story which aired on Thursday 21st April.
