TestimonialChris.jpg
Calling it an ‘app’ doesn’t completely capture the depth and breadth of the experience it offers.

“Healthimation is rich with tips, engaging animation and instructions, and fun incentives to help participants stay on track. I’m honored to further augment that experience in coaching participants.”

“Providing support both individually and in their groups, the Healthimation coach portal helps me collaborate on implementing users’ corresponding habit changes along with navigating common challenges required to attain their weight loss goals.”

“This humanistic, customized support is another bonus, and it’s been rewarding to witness the powerful weight loss results participants have achieved.
— Chris – Healthimation Coach

I love my app! It is amazing! And believe me, everybody notices that I lost weight. I lost 17lbs in total. There’s times that I just crave a lot, but then next day I come back and back to my diet. I am doing awesome!

TestimonialDeAnne.jpg
As a woman over 40 fighting aging hormones and a demanding schedule, I needed a weight loss plan I could do quickly. The Why WAIT app made it so easy to decide what to eat and showed me how to do simple and efficient exercises anywhere, that really made a difference. Online coaches provided tips and advice to make results even speedier. I lost 2 inches off my waist and now I fit into a size 6 dress!!
