How it works

Once enrolled in the program, each person will receive his/her own health coach and schedule their first coaching session. These live, personal weekly meetings with your health coach take just 15 minutes through Skype or Facetime. 

Aside from your coaching sessions, you'll track your food intake and exercise using Kurbo's app. That way your coach can see how you're doing each week and help encourage you to keep up the good work or make adjustment to meet your goals. 

Kurbo also includes a variety of tools and resources to help along the way. These include:

  • A workbook to track your progress
  • Educational videos
  • Games
  • Ongoing newsletters
  • Exercise tips 
  • And more!
