Design an integrated program solution to produce exercise behavior change as a component to address a specific health concern for high cholesterol shared among a client’s employee population.
Our team worked in conjunction with the client’s on-site health clinic to provide employees with an intensive lifestyle intervention program targeting healthy cholesterol reduction. Health clinicians screened and identified participants with higher than normal cholesterol levels. Based on their results, participants were given healthy habits to follow for the next 8 weeks, which included weekly wellness coaching and exercise sessions, with unlimited access to the site fitness center and our fitness professionals. The program produced successful outcomes. Seventy-five percent of participants completed the program experiencing an average 9 point drop in total cholesterol and subsequent weight loss of 4.5 pounds in eight weeks. In post program surveys, 100% of respondents claimed the program helped them improve physical activity habits and overall health.
