The United States is in the middle of a health epidemic. Obesity and the resulting chronic diseases threaten the well-being of the people of our nation. Today's children are the first generation in history that is expected to die younger than their parents as a direct result! 70% of Americans are overweight and that number continues to increase. Millions of lives are threatened and at risk. People need help. Community Weight Loss Support Centers exists to provide that help to people of all ages in communities across our country.
For over 28 years Community Weight Loss Support Centers and affiliates have been helping people around the United States to lose weight, to keep it off, and to live healthier, more fulfilling lives. Backed by Herbalife International's Medical Advisory Board with decades of combined experience, knowledge, and education in the fields of science, medicine, and nutrition in regard to human health, we provide a powerful, supportive, balanced approach to life-long weight loss.
Our founding associates began in 1980 providing nutrition-based weight loss programs focused on one-on-one support. Within a few years those services had expanded to communities throughout the country and new affiliates and locations have contiued to be added since.
The Weight Loss Challenge program was added in the early 2000s, and has been increasing in popularity ever since as a fun and effective way to help people get started on the right path to life-long weight control. We continue to open local support centers in communities throughout the U.S. to this day. Each support center is independently owned and operated under a centralized training and support system. The wellness coaches and meeting leaders have all successfully gone through our wellness support program first, and are engaged in ongoing training programs provided by Herbalife International. These coaches have chosen to help us reach more people for the mission of helping others achieve greater health and wellness.
We continue to expand into more communities to reach more people with the education, guidance, and tools they need to lead healthier lives. Our ultimate mission is to help the people of our nation to get healthier -- one person at a time.
