Music career saved by wellness
17 January 2008

Darren Geffre

BEFORE AND AFTER: Before he changed his ways, singer-songwriter Darren Geffre (Blackfeet Tribe) used to drink a six-pack of sugary soft drinks daily. The photo behind him showed what he looked like in his mid 20s as a borderline diabetic weighting 305 pounds. After a change in diet and the loss of 125 pounds, his music career took off, earning him nominations for NAMMYs and GRAMMYs. Kicking off UTTC Wellness Week on January 14, Geffre said the transformation came by making a total commitment to health and fitness. UTN Photo Dennis J. Neumann
