Retrofit Group Launches Online Meetings for Weight Loss at Work, Disrupts Traditional Corporate Weight Loss Programs
Date:1/2/2014

ore than 90% of Retrofit clients are losing weight by making sustainable lifestyle changes through the use of wireless technology and online videoconferences from weight loss advisors. In fact, Retrofit clients who complete a 12-month weight loss program lose an average of 19.1 pounds, or 8.3% of their starting body weight. However, to meet the ever-changing needs of busy professionals, Hyman believes that adding Group to the existing portfolio of Retrofit weight loss programs is an important next step.

“We are at a tipping point, where having healthy employees is a strategic advantage,” said Hyman, adding that overweight or obese employees cost an employer nearly $1,500 a year in additional healthcare costs.

In addition, a recent Harvard University study proved that for every dollar invested in corporate wellness, employee medical costs fall about $3.27 and absenteeism costs fall by about $2.73. Companies can save an average of $6.00 for every $1.00 spent on corporate wellness programs.

Retrofit Group is the first of its kind to offer weekly vidoeconference group sessions and online small group support. Most other weight loss at work programs require employees to participate in weekly in-person meetings.

Retrofit brings its unique corporate weight loss program conveniently and virtually to employees via videoconferencing. This new high-tech model for weight loss at work will bring more results-driven options to consumers, who currently lack solutions for combating obesity and increasing productivity in the workplace.

“There is safety in numbers. Research shows that people lose more weight when supported by employers, colleagues, family, and friends,” said Hyman. “The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
