Weight & Activity Monitoring Prove That Data is Key to Weight Loss for Retrofit Clients: Participation and Real-time Tracking Increases Corporate Weight Loss
Date:8/6/2013

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 06, 2013

Retrofit clients who completed a 12-month weight loss program lost an average of 19.1 pounds, or 8.3% of their starting body weight, through combined use of activity tracking and weight monitoring, according to company reports. The study also revealed that individuals who weighed in more often, lost more weight.

“This statistical data proves that, in personal wellness, you can manage what you can measure,” said Retrofit CEO Jeff Hyman. “In order for employers to reduce healthcare costs due to obesity and its related diseases, companies simply must have a weight loss program that seamlessly collects and monitors employee data.”

“Retrofit’s analysis shows that clients who weighed in at least five days a week lost an average of 26 pounds or approximately 12% of their starting weight,” said Retrofit Research Analyst Buck Hanson, who aggregated data from clients that completed the 12-month Retrofit program. Hanson also found “For each day that clients weighed in, they increased the odds of hitting their target goal by 22%. Additionally, with each day that the included Fitbit activity tracker was worn, clients increased their odds of hitting their target goal by 24%.”

The number of weigh-ins per week and activity trackers used days per week is statistically significant for weight loss, according to the Retrofit study. This supports published reports that conclude that data-tracking, combined with support and accountability, is a vital component for meeting weight loss goals. On average, successful Retrofit clients, those who met their goals, weighed in 3.9 days per week.

The Retrofit study accounted for age, BMI, and gender to demonstrate the effect participation has on driving weight loss.
