Life Time – The Healthy Way of Life Company (NYSE: LTM) today announced five new Twin Cities businesses who will take part in the myHealthCheck sm program, a program aimed to reduce health care costs for employees, employers and insurers. Leonard Street and Deinard, Millerbernd, Process Displays, Inc., City of St. Louis Park, and J&B Group have joined Allina Hospitals & Clinics to take part in myHealthCheck , which includes a comprehensive health assessment that identifies risk factors, promotes ongoing guidance with wellness coaches and a 12-month reassessment to measure progress against the plan. “We are excited to launch these new partnerships and the myHealthCheck program in such a diverse group of industries,” says Holt Vaughn, Senior Director of the HealthCheck Division at Life Time. “Our goal is to help these companies and their employees realize measurable change and progress in creating a healthier, more productive workforce as opposed to relying on employee participation as the sole measure of success.” myHealthCheck empowers employees to take personal responsibility for their health and empowers employers to author a results-based health benefits strategy that encourages personal responsibility and rewards employees for positive change. Coupled with Life Time’s more than 2,600 fitness professionals, more than 60 registered dietitians, online fitness and cooking videos, myPlan™ workout and nutrition trackers myHealthCheck makes it easy. Unlike traditional self-reported risk assessments, myHealthCheck assesses employees’ health and wellness, fitness level and lifestyle, through blood work, metabolic testing and wellness coaching, while providing each individual with a personalized health profile to set personalized goals and measure progress. Users can track their exercise, nutrition, weight loss and more through their personal myHealthCheck online dashboard. Additionally, each myHealthCheck participant can participate in wellness coaching sessions and receives ongoing guidance from Life Time health and nutrition professionals. At 12 months, a new wellness assessment is completed to gauge the employee’s progress.
