What We Do
GIVE THE GIFT OF HEALTH
Mind Your Shape's business model (self-sustaining nonprofit) was developed after discovering the logistics and cost of a healthy lifestyle were inaccessible to those in lower economic status. Statistics show that this segment of the population in United States struggle the most with obesity and mental illness. We recognize that the health issues of those in poverty cannot be solved using traditional methods. A successful wellness program must take into account affordability, accessibility, convenience, and one-on-one guidance.
To be successful in lifestyle changes, both health education as well as the means and methods to implement the knowledge are needed. Mind Your Shape addresses convenience and flexibility needed to make the long-lasting changes through online platforms, which also cuts cost by more than 50% than market rate.
