Our programs are completely online to fit our clients needs. You can join your closed groups securely from wherever you are on a phone, tablet or computer! A closed group means that you are with the same people, and staff, for the entire program. You get to be in the room for the entire session with like-minded people who really “get it”. It provides the support and accountability you need to lose weight, and more important, learn how to keep it off. This camaraderie is invaluable.
Closed groups also help the staff get to know you and build on curriculum. If people were constantly coming and going, there would be no good way for the staff to put together a cohesive and effective curriculum. If anyone leaves the group, we do not replace them.
Assigned to each weight loss group is the same behavior therapist (clinical psychologist or licensed social worker), registered dietitian, and exercise physiologist. The staff are all experts in their areas of training. Because they remain assigned to your group for the entire program, they get to know you and you get to know them. They are there for you every step of the way.
All of our staff are committed to helping you. We all have advanced degrees in our area of expertise, and this is how we earn our living. These aren’t part-time jobs on the side for any of us. This is who we are and what we do. We are fully committed to helping you.
We’ve been in business since 1991, more than 20 years. Our program was previously named the Mount Sinai Morningside Hospital Weight Loss Program in New York City, 92% of the participants lost weight. The current atmosphere of health, aging and weight loss brought us to make the decision to open our program to the broader audience in the United States.
As the founder of FitsMe Health developed this program, we understand the trials and tribulations of weight loss, and we are familiar and know how to help with the shame, guilt, isolation, body shaming, and self-loathing that goes along with excess body weight and repeated attempts at losing weight, sometimes a lifetime of it.
