Knowledge + Small Goals = Sustainable Results
Our Simple, Three-Step Approach
Everyone's story is unique. There is no one size fits all formula for those who are trying to lose weight and discover a healthier lifestyle.
During our Investigate phase, your weight loss coach discovers your unique nutritional, physical and emotional habits, likes and dislikes. By understanding from where you are starting, we will be sure not to push you too hard or too easy, which leads us to the next phase...
Now that we understand your starting point, your weight loss coach develops a personalized nutritional, physical and emotional plan to help fill the gaps on where you are vs where you want to be relative to your desired lifestyle.
Your weight loss coach's recommendations are based on proven research from organizations such as the National Institute for Health, Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, American Council on Exercise and many more.
The purpose of this phase is to clarify all of the information that exists in today's weight loss industry, so we can move onto the next step...
Now that you armed with knowledge, we will now fan the flames of your desire for a better lifestyle.
Why do you want to lose weight? Why are you seeking a better lifestyle? These questions, among others, will help your weight loss coach better understand how successful you will be on your lifestyle improvement journey.
Through one-on-one coaching sessions, you will discover many things and your weight loss coach will be with you every step of the way.
Finally, a weight loss program that primarily addresses your lifestyle habits and not just another quick fix shakes or one-size fits all meal plan program.
LightenUp was recommended to me by my Dr. when I made an appointment to check my thyroid. I had been working out so hard, completely cutting out the carbs in my diet for about 6 weeks.....and did not lose a pound!!! I thought it had to be my thyroid. I was so frustrated to say the least. I was also skeptical of LightenUp and gyms, but I knew I had to make a change as my knees won't let me hike anymore at the moment and hiking is my love and solace. I decided to give LightenUp a chance and am so grateful that I did. A couple of fairly minor tweaks to my diet and now I'm down more than 50 pounds. This from the girl who couldn't get the scale to move for over a year! LightenUp is a God send to me and I appreciate the care and community that comes with the membership. The coaches really do invest in your lives and CARE about your well being. It's not a money-making trap.
Shawna - 60 lbs lost
We are so proud our teenage son. Although we’re somewhat healthy people, it was his decision to make a better choice in his life and lose weight, and we supported him, fully. After looking around we found the LightenUp on 144th and I-25. This isn’t a fad diet program. It’s all about long-term healthy eating, proportion sizes, awareness, and exercise. Within 3 months, our son lost 30 lbs, and is still going, and sticking with it. We appreciate their hands-on support, personal mentoring and encouragement that they have given him. He’s a new man…our “littler” man. I also love all of the apps, monitors and high-tech communication support, whether in or out of the facility. The facility is quaint and not intimidating (no massive gym) with all the state-of-the art-amenities. It’s perfect for someone looking for pubic, yet personal, hands-on care. It’s run by a great team – who have had their own struggles and stories to tell you when you join. Thank you. You have not only taught my son, but all of us, as a family, on how to feed and support him, and ourselves better. We could not be happier with our investment in LightenUp.
Tanner - Over 50 lbs lost
Little did I know several months back that the wonderfully passionate, caring and knowledgeable people at LightenUp would truly set a new and intensely better course for my life when I called asking for help with losing weight and cultivating good overall health. You see, I was nearly 100 pounds overweight and had been suffering the effects of nearly out-of-control type 2 diabetes that is lethargy, fatigue and low/high blood sugar crashes. I had also just come from seeing my doctor who, when asked if he could advise me on my losing weight to curb the diabetes, stated "There are skinny people and there are fat people - it's all about genes. Take your meds, eat what you want and don't worry about your weight." I am glad this happened because it prompted me to discover LightenUp. I spoke on the phone that same day to an authentically empathetic and responsive personality for at least an hour. She sparked in me the idea that we are NOT genetically determined to be overweight and unhealthy, and that I could accomplish these goals. She was right!!!! I have lost 62 pounds or 20% of my body weight, my blood glucose is stabilize, I am no longer taking some of my diabetic medications and I have gained real health sustaining knowledge that will serve me for my life. Thank you, LightenUp, for all that you do and for making all of this possible!
