Tim Kaufman

Finding The Road To Health And Grateful Movement 

Tim Kaufman started a journey to regain his health. At 400 pounds he was unable to perform simple daily tasks. He had many chronic health issues and was almost immobile. He had lost his interest in life and had almost given up. He started to change one small thing at a time. He is now an athlete that thrives on a plant-based whole foods lifestyle and leads a healthy, happy, productive, and very active life that is free of all medications he was once on. His passion is to spread the message that anyone can transition to a healthy, active lifestyle and dramatically change their life regardless of their current situation or size. Tim has appeared on Podcasts from around the world and has been filmed for an upcoming movie. He has been featured in the Buffalo Newspaper and been on Channel 7 news. He is using public speaking, his blog posts at www.fatmanrants.com, and his Facebook page to connect with other people who are ready to change.

Tim will be sharing his story of transformation and talking about some of the tools he used to gain back his health and mobility.  He will also be talking about how he spent much of his life escaping pain with substances and how today he embraces life, both the good and bad, and uses running and hiking as a way to spend time to reflect and focus on everything he has to be grateful for. 

"I have never conisidered running as exercise, I have always considered it as grateful movement."
