Sanford Launches Weight Management Facility

Posted: Updated:

Sanford Health has a new option for people trying to shed pounds in the valley. Profile by Sanford launched its new Fargo location on Friday. The new facility is in the Times Square Plaza at 4950 13th Avenue South.

Profile by Sanford offers meal replacement products, nutritionally complete food, and health coaches to assist with healthy weight loss.  The coaches will even design custom plans for clients and offer advice on nutrition, exercise, and behavior.

"We have technology that links to your wireless Internet at home, explains Profile store manager Kimmy Meyer. "You just step on the scale and it uploads all of your info right online to your profile and you can watch it from your phone. It's just an easy plan for people to follow."

The store was designed using a large body of clinical research to ensure a sustainable means to healthy weight loss.

In addition to face-to-face meetings, coaches are able to track members' progress through smart wireless technology. Each member is outfitted with wireless devices to measure progress, including tools to track body weight and measurement, blood pressure and step count and exercise.

The devices automatically upload to a secure server, where members and coaches can monitor improvement on the web or mobile applications. Printed options are also available.

Several more Profile by Sanford locations are being planned over the upcoming year.
