Tony Robbins went from a height of 5 feet, 1 inch during his sophomore year of high school to well over 6 feet tall before his senior year. While the muscles spasms from the quick growth were quite painful, they were not as bad as finding out his rapid growth was due to a tumor in his brain on his pituitary gland.


Dr. Oz explained that pituitary gland secretes growth hormones which is excellent for small children who need to grow but not for Tony Robbins who should have been done growing. It could have been very dangerous for him, causing other parts of his body to grow too large, like vital organs, while other parts of the body struggle to keep up.

Fortunately for Tony, the tumor has shrunk but he still believes that was the scariest time of his life.

Change Needed on a Physical and Psychological Level

Dr. Oz has always been one to question how a person overcame extreme struggles in their life because he believes it is an opportunity to boost morale for others in similar situations.

Robbins said he took control of his own life when he was overweight by making a list of reasons he wanted to change. He then followed that list and found strategies to lose weight and change himself on a physical and psychological level. He added that he hates to see people in pain, which is why he has dedicated over 30 years to helping others become happy with their lives.
