Our coaches are the backbone of the Profile plan. Every Certified Profile Coach goes through extensive training on nutrition, activity and lifestyle skills to help members get the most out of the program. Coaches are here to help develop your personalized plan, answer questions, provide advice and help you address successes and struggles.
Coaching greatly increases a member’s odds of success on the program; in fact, our studies show that members who meet with a coach every week for the first eight weeks lose more weight. Coaches are a sounding board for questions and advice, holding you accountable to your plan and letting you know that you’re not in this alone.
You don’t have to become an expert in balancing protein, carbs, fats, vitamins and minerals or understanding portion control right away. Qualified professionals have already calculated the exact mix of essential nutrients your body needs to lose weight while maintaining good health.
Profile was founded in 2012 as part of the Sanford Health family. The program was developed by the Profile Clinical and Scientific Advisory Board, which consists of Sanford researchers, physicians ranging from OBGYN to internal medicine, diabetes educators and more. With this board, we built the plan to be tailored and personalized to fit the weight loss needs of all who join, ensuring a high quality experience that is simple, effective and sustainable.
“I have experienced amazing results, and I have been able to attain my goals on a schedule even ahead of the plan my coach put together specifically for me. While I am still working on reaching my goal, I know this plan will help me in accomplishing this.
I strongly recommend scheduling an appointment with a Profile by Sanford coach to anyone who is interested in better health and getting to your desired weight.”
