Great publicity will lead to a packed house at the Body Mind Life Expo

Our Body Mind Life Expo is coming up next weekend, and we know it’s going to be a success thanks to the handful of fantastic media placements in the works. One of our biggest attractions is an appearance by Biggest Loser season nine contestant O’Neal Hampton. He is a big fan favorite from the show, and somewhat of a celebrity around the Twin Cities.

After losing 170 pounds on the hit prime time show two year ago, O’Neal has made it a goal to encourage others to make positive changes in their lives. Now he’s found a bigger way to do it. During the Body Mind Life Expo, O’Neal will announce the launch of the O’Neal Hampton Wellness Foundation. Its mission is to help severely obese individuals and their families to make life changes and build self esteem.

Our publicists have done a great job a getting a mix of newspaper, television, and radio placements for O’Neal and his foundation. Today O’Neal was in-studio with the morning crew on the new K-Twin radio station. The DJs talked and joked with O’Neal about the current Biggest Loser season and how things are going for his daughter Sunshine, who was also on the show with him. O’Neal then encouraged listeners to check out the Body Mind Life Expo at the Minneapolis Convention Center March 17-18.

Due up next are a few great articles in the Star Tribune, Savvy.MN and Bloomington Sun Current. Also look for O’Neal on KARE 11 Sunrise next Thursday, March 15th.

O’Neal is such a fun and inspiring person.  Just a few minutes of listening to an interview and you’ll understand why he is such a fan favorite, and why the house will be packed when he takes the stage at the Body Mind Life Expo. Tickets are still available. Check out for more information and discounted tickets.
