Retrofit, launching in November 2011, brings science and technology together in a complete weight loss program that shows astonishing promise. However, to realize our vision, we need a few amazing Behavior Coaches. We?re ridiculously picky. But if you have what it takes, we?ll pay you above-average compensation to work your magic.
Retrofit?s mission is to deliver the industry?s best long-term weight loss outcomes for our clients. We have no interest in short-term weight loss that is quickly regained.
Our core offering -- designed by an Advisory Board of nationally recognized experts -- is a fully customized year-long program designed to help clients lose 5-10% of their entry weight and keep it off for the year.
Participants are armed with wi-fi tracking devices, a multi-disciplinary expert wellness team, and practical strategies for how to lose weight healthfully.
Retrofit brings the best of science to building better eating, exercise, and behavior patterns.
The personal wellness team approach gives each client the range of skills needed to be successful. The team environment gives our behavior coaches a unique opportunity to collaborate with exercise physiologists and registered dietitians to provide for a client?s full range of needs.
We find the clients and bring them right to you.

For each client, you?ll do everything possible to help them achieve their weight loss objective. You?ll partner with a Registered Dietitian and an Exercise Physiologist to form a core Wellness Team that works with the client.

|Company Profile:||Retrofit (www.retrofitme.com) is a Chicago-based startup that is doing some actual good for the world. We are tackling one of the biggest health problems effecting the United States and much of the rest of the world: unhealthy weight and obesity. In the US today, over 68 of adults are overweight and over 35 are obese. A recent report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) predicts that 75 percent of Americans will be considered overweight or obese by the 2020 (the highest rate of any country surveyed). The medical costs/implications of this epidemic are staggering - by some reports over 150 billion a year.
We are not just another diet or weight-loss company. Retrofit is science-based, data-driven and outcome-focused. Our protocol was guided by our impressive advisory board which is comprised of leading experts in weight loss, nutrition and exercise. There is enormous interest in the health and wellness space. There is no shortage of investor interest in us - we recently closed our Series B VC round, raising 5 million.
