The Shrink and the Shrunk

Let's face it…approaching your employees or co-workers on a personal subject like health and wellness isn't easy. Even though creating a healthier workplace benefits the people you work with as much as it benefits your company, it can still feel like crossing the line.

The Shrink (Dr. Howard Rankin from ABC's "The View") and The Shrunk (Gary Marino from "Live With Regis & Kelly", "FOX News") have created a unique and entertaining full day or half day wellness seminar that delivers inspiration, education, tools and support while keeping the content fun and entertaining. Making it entertaining is the key ingredient.

Rankin is a renowned psychologist and wellness expert who has authored 9 books and over 50 scientific papers on obesity, health and addictive disorders. Of course there's another ingredient that separates Rankin from the rest. He's funny. The always humorous Marino connects with audiences by relating his "regular guy" struggle to lose 150 pounds while balancing a fast paced career and family. Thanks to the book "Big & Tall Chronicles," the film "Million Calorie March," his cross country walk and his recent health tours for Blue Cross, Marino has mastered the art of making wellness and obesity humorous and entertaining while always leaving the audience with the message.

Gary Marino and Dr. Howard Rankin met in 2006 while hosting a radio pilot for Diet TV. You can listen to it here. Consulting packages are available in addition to live presentations.

Here's what some clients have said about The Shrink & The Shrunk:

"I worried about crossing the line with my employees, but we needed to make improving health a part of our workplace culture. What a great ice breaker The Shrink & The Shrunk was! In the end, my workers were thanking me as if I'd brought in something special for their enjoyment."
Children's Workshop Centers, Rhode Island

"Perfect! The last thing our group wanted was a dull presentation on health and wellness. This presentation was anything but that. This workplace wellness presentation made our audience laugh, learn and think about the importance of health."
Low Country Community Health Initiative

"Gary is amazing. He's real. He's a regular person like our employees and yet he's showed them that a regular person can achieve the impossible!"
Blue Cross of North Carolina
