Drew Manning, famous for his Fit2Fat2Fit book came to share his story with Snow College at
convocations.
For six months, personal trainer Drew Manning gained nearly 70 pounds in order to gain some empathy
for his clients. He went from being fit, to being fat, then he would, just as he instructs his clients, go back
to fit. During this endeavor, he was on Good Morning America, Dr. Oz and many other television shows.
Taylor Peterson, a Snow College student who attended, said “Drew Manning was amazing. He put a
new twist on the phrase ‘You don’t know someone until you have walked a mile in their shoes.’ He
inspired all who attended to live a healthier lifestyle and to do their best to see the world through
someone else’s eyes.”
Manning tells that through this experience, he had many physical trials that he had to overcome, but
what was most difficult for him were the emotional battles. He was feeling less confident and was
depressed more than usual.
Manning asked his wife, Lynn, to talk about the mental health benefits that working out brings and she
told a personal story of how being fit helped her emotional state. She warned the audience that mental
health is a big problem that is not talked about often enough, and that physical health inherently helps
mental health.
After talking at Convocations, Drew and Lynn gave an exercise class in the Greenwood Student Center.
