Tell us a bit about your customers
Our members come from a variety of backgrounds, as we have a multitude of different protocols to accommodate their needs. With that being said, all of our members have one thing in common: a drive for self-improvement. Whether they are a new mother looking to safely lose their baby weight, or an athlete looking to drop a few pounds as they are gearing up for their next competition, we are there for them on their path towards a healthier lifestyle. Our coaches work with our members to find what is best for them and keep their Physicians informed along the way. Profile is a relationship driven company, so the members are always the focus. A great example of this can be found at this link below.
Share the history of your company
Profile began in 2011 when Sanford Health CEO Kelby Krabbenhoft challenged the organization to create a weight loss program rooted in science and research. Profile’s first Clinic and Scientific Advisory Board came together to assemble all the pieces of a comprehensive program designed to set in the industry standard for how nutrition, activity and lifestyle coaching is delivered. Less than a year later, Profile opened its first retail location. Today, our results-oriented approach continues to fuel our growth.
How are you involved with your customers and community?
Our focus at Profile is to truly create a healthier Alpharetta, one relationship at a time. We work with our members on a daily basis to help guide them along their journey towards a healthy lifestyle change. Our one-on-one lifestyle coaches allows us to further connect with our members in every aspect of their lives.
Additionally, we routinely host member and non-members events and Discovery session to help promote a healthy lifestyle within the community. We are constantly looking to form relationships with like-minded businesses to continue to grow and have a positive effect on the local community. In addition to serving our members, we also strive to form Employer Partnerships to work towards supplementing their health and wellness benefits to create a happier, healthier, and more productive workforce.
