Take It Off is a weight loss program that incorporates healthy eating, regular exercise and one-on-one coaching to create long-term results. Participants utilize grocery store foods and simple, quick recipes to make food preparation easy yet flavorful.
The 12-week program is offered at licensed health club locations throughout North America. Participants who follow the program can lose up to 25 lbs. during the 12-weeks.
Certified Take It Off Coaches provide one-on-one coaching to participants throughout their program to keep them motivated and on-track. For those wanting to lose more weight than can be obtained during the 12-week program re-enrollment in a second term is encouraged.
The success of the Take It Off Program is founded on one thing; client success. We know that participants want the immediate gratification of watching the scale go down but that they also need a program that creates long-term weight loss. The Take It Off Program accomplishes both short and long-term weight loss by following three specific philosophies:
1. Sensible Eating
Sensible eating is knowing what to eat, how much to eat and when our body needs it most. Take It Off does what few programs do…it empowers you by teaching the “why”.
2. Regular Exercise
Regular exercise is something other weight loss programs tell you to do. Take It Off goes further by teaching you what exercises are most beneficial to your weight loss success and gives you a place to do it.
3. Lifestyle Changes
Lifestyle changes are a part of the one-on-one coaching sessions. You don’t read about them, talk over the phone with someone you’re never going to meet in person or sit in a group. You will get the attention you deserve with a personal coach who is there every step of the way.
Go to the section of this website entitled “Licensed Locations” and see if there is a health club near where you live who offers the program. Make an appointment to visit the facility and meet with a Take It Off Coach for a free consultation.
Yes, all licensed locations allow non-members to participate in the program and most will offer you the ability to add a short-term membership option to the program if you are not currently exercising somewhere.
Certain medical conditions may prevent someone from participating in the program but assuming you do not have any significant medical issues most people can do the program.
At the moment the Take It Off Program can only be delivered at a licensed facility. You can contact your local health club and suggest they look into offering the program.
Unless you have a medical condition that prevents you from exercising, we prefer that participants engage in regular exercise in conjunction with the Take It Off Program. Remember that it is the regular exercise that will maintain weight loss. By exercising throughout your program the goal is to make it a habit by the end of the three months.
This varies by location. Please contact your local provider to obtain this information. Every provider offers free, no-obligation consultations that allow you to learn the details of the program to determine if it is right for you.
Because one-on-one coaching is one of the primary elements to the program you need to visit with your Take It Off Coach at least once a week. This is usually done at the health club or in some instances at a workplace that is offering Take It Off at Work.
No problem. You can still work out at your existing health club but visit the Take It Off provider on the days you have your coaching sessions.
The Take It Off Program does not sell pre-packaged meals because we want you to learn how to prepare healthy, delicious, quick meals on your own (or by your significant other) so you can maintain your healthy eating plan for life. The program does utilize high quality snacks, which include protein bars, shakes, and drinks that are used in-between meals. These portion controlled items allow participants to satiate their need for sweet and salty foods without the concern of over-indulging.
The program utilizes one-on-one coaching to allow for the greatest level of personal attention and flexibility for your schedule. Some facilities may offer group meetings as an additional level of support and education but you are not required to attend these.
Absolutely NOT; in fact one of the goals of the Take It Off Program is to help your entire family become healthier. As a result all of the recipes and foods used with the program are family friendly. This ensures you won’t have to prepare one meal for yourself and another for your family.
All of your meals utilize grocery store foods. You can continue to use whatever grocer you prefer. You will have two in-between meal snacks each day and your licensed provider offers a full line of bars, shakes and drinks that are specifically designed to keep you full, satiate your desire for sweets and maximize your weight loss success.
