John Golden's Remarks

John Golden’s remarks led off with a video created to share his story with others seeking solutions such as his. While his story is truly remarkable and one of commitment to a complete lifestyle change, John encouraged everyone to set goals for living an active life and to be honest with themselves about where they are compared to where they would like to be.

John provided 8 "What did I learn" steps for all to follow:

  1. Set lifestyle goals
  2. Be honest with yourself, be vulnerable; take feedback, advice, and take the corrective actions
  3. Invest the time–your health is the best investment you can make!
  4. Do not be deterred
  5. Build a team that will push you, not just likes you
  6. Get information, do not accept no
  7. Share your successes and failures
  8. Understand the importance of rehab and preparing pre-rehab
