What changed Bern’s thinking?
A visit to The World Renowned; Hilton Head Health Institute,” Weight- Loss  Spa", in South Carolina, USA, and subsequent trials at Academy 4 Wellbieng courses who were preparing to launch, Britain’s own challenge and solution to The World-Wide Obesity Epidemic and gaining “Inspiration” from the way The Hilton Head’s Experience: “Re-Programmes “people’s approach to Wellbeing, by re-educating, motivating and supporting their guests to make sustainable improvements in Physical, Nutritional and most importantly Emotional Wellbeing.”

Bern “wholeheartedly supports the Launch of Britain’s; Academy4Wellbeing” which opens in June 2012, in Central England so that UK and EEC guests can have the same “life-changing experience” that he has had without having to travel across the ocean for a solution to their weight, health, fitness and overall wellbeing needs.
