MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – For many, the pandemic has been a time of sitting at home, eating, and drinking more than usual, leading to them gaining “COVID weight”.
Profile by Sanford wants to help them shed those extra pounds.
“We provide one-on-one health coaching to help our members lose weight and keep it off,” Store Operations Manager Tiffany Burrow said. “Profile created by doctors and researchers out of Sanford Health in South Dakota, so the plan is science-backed. And then we focused on compassionate coaching here to guide and support you along the way.”
Burrow said she understands that the last year has been a challenging time for everyone; that is why Profile’s program is perfect for those who want to lose weight. Coaches will work with members to find an individualized nutrition and fitness plan that is best suited for their needs.
By tailoring each member’s experience, Burrow said, each person can get exactly what they need out of the program. The bespoke experience, the store’s operation manager said, is made possible by the personal coaches.
“I definitely think what makes us unique is the one on one health coaching, so you have a person that works with you every day and helps you if you’re having any trouble, any challenges, we here to help you overcome that — to hold you accountable,” Burrow said. “And then also, we focus on sustainability, so we want to help our members lose weight, but most importantly, to sustain that weight loss.”
