Antine teaches a wildly popular school assembly program called “Try It, You’ll Like It” across the nation. Due to the success of the program, Life in Sync – an established nonprofit 501c3 organization – has approved HealthBarn USA as its first funding recipient in helping combat the obesity epidemic and diseases associated with weight gain.
