Kurt loses 26kgs

Following his dramatic 26kg weight loss, Afrikaans dance music sensation Kurt Darren spoke to The Juice about his new lease on life, and the positive effect his wellness journey has had on his family and career.

The 48-year-old singer has always lived a very active lifestyle, having previously gone parasailing, white river rafting, shark cage diving and skiing. But with touring the world and constantly being on the road, Kurt says that he started to "neglect" his health.

Ready to make a serious lifestyle change, the singer embarked on a 12-week programme with Kaizen Wellness. "Over the course of 3-months I challenged myself to get into the best shape of my life. And now, the end of the 12-weeks have turned into the rest of my life," he says.

"I love a challenge, and I really wanted to push myself to be in peak physical and mental condition. With a beautiful wife, and two young children I really wanted to give the 12-weeks my all, to be the best I could be for my future-self."
