Greg Rex is a Health Coach and Lifestyle Entrepreneur. His passion for healthy living extends into a passion for surfing and for the environment. Greg says, “As a surfer, I believe that I have a responsibility to give the next generation a chance to enjoy what I enjoy.” Greg’s love of the ocean and his sense of conservation responsibility are what drive his membership and support in eco-minded organizations such as the Surfrider Foundation and the U.S. Green Chamber of Commerce.
Through his personal struggle with weight loss in the past, Greg met Dr. Wayne Andersen, Medical Director for Take Shape For Life, a division of Medifast. Through the Medifast system Greg lost fifty pounds and has kept the weight off for over ten years. Greg became a Certified Health Coach and earned a position as Global Director of Take Shape For Life.
Take Shape For Life is more than a weight-loss plan, it is a program for healthy living that fosters permanent lifestyle improvements. The program includes free Health Coach guidance and the support needed to lose weight quickly and safely, while teaching the healthy habits necessary to keep the weight off. Greg believes “Achieving a Healthy Mind, a Healthy Body, and Healthy Finances is an individual effort and a community effort.” He says, “Collaboration and group support is a big part of what I teach and has been a major factor in the successes with which I’ve been blessed.” Greg’s strategy for adopting long-term healthy living habits through individual efforts as well as community support is also a great model for the adoption of lasting environmental conservation efforts. It is only through collective action and accountability that the United States will achieve it’s goals for long-term sustainability.
Greg’s affiliation with Take Shape For Life and the U.S. Green Chamber brought the Medifast organization on board as a proud sponsor of Sustainable Solutions, an event that will bring together innovators in sustainable practices to share their unique solutions for making long-term sustainability a reality. The event will be held at UC San Diego on November 14th, 2012. It is open to community members, business owners, and students.
