Heart Disease and Obesity are the #1 and #3 Leading Causes of Death in The United States. They are also the most preventable.

We are a nation that loves a quick fix but often has nowhere to turn for solutions. Heart disease kills over 600,000 people a year and over 30{1ee8873d3da54571ef77633feec9b2f18618b0dba2f28faf42edb28003d1c6f7} of the population is considered obese. Adult and Childhood obesity is at epidemic proportions with no signs of slowing down. The facts are — that as deadly as these two diseases are, they are also the most preventable.

Heart Disease, Obesity and Physical Inactivity are in the Spotlight. No one knows this better than Keith Ahrens. Keith survived life saving open-heart surgery and has lost over 200 pounds without weight-loss surgery. Keith is uniquely qualified to deliver practical solutions and a timely message of the hope, possibilities and the benefits of a healthier and ultimately happier life. Keith Ahrens is the Lifestyle Change Expert to give your audience the courage to take the first step.

Keith can easily participate in your next event or serve on a panel to share his story and deliver his strong inspirational and motivating message. Keith is an outstanding public speaker and loves to share his solutions and methods.

Keith will talk about the amazing journey he has gone through and will engage his audience to think about their own well-being. They will come away understanding and realizing that there is no time, like now to make the decisions to change their lives.

Keith will work with your meeting planner, event coordinator, or human resource department to customize or focus his presentation on any key areas you would like to benefit your group.

By sharing his story today, Keith has not only succeeded in making a huge difference in his own life, but he has succeeded in making a difference in the lives of countless future clients of my students. His message is heart-felt – both literally and figuratively! Keith speaks of rational health behavior choices – not quick cures and shallow successes. Keith’s story about the changes he needed to make in every aspect of his life, from food choices, to activity participation, to social relationships are evidence that health can be regained. This message is long overdue for so many of us. But Keith reassures us it is not too late. Keith provides hope.
