WAKEFIELD, RI—Clubs have a new option for weight loss programs for their members. Casey Conrad, club industry consultant, author, featured speaker and founder of international weight loss franchise Healthy Inspirations, has introduced an in-club weight loss program called Take It Off.
Take It Off is a three-month weight loss program designed for health clubs to offer to their members. The turnkey system can be administered by existing staff members and does not require a nutritionist or dietician. The program, using a 120-page, color journal and nutritional plan, delivers an average weight loss of 1-2 pounds per week when followed. The program uses grocery store foods for all meals and participants are given specific and simple-to-follow eating guidelines. They make their own daily food choices and learn how to cook healthfully. The guidelines and food categories utilized ensure that the member stays within the necessary caloric intake for safe, successful weight loss.
Suggested pricing for the 12-week program is between $299 and $399. In addition to the program fee, clubs generate revenue with snack products specifically designed to work with the program. As far as cost to clubs, Take It Off is a licensing program with no up front fee to operators and a nominal monthly investment. Journals and snacks are purchased by the clubs on an as needed basis.
