Greatist Approved Products are goods and services that the Greatist team has thoroughly tested and found to be so incredibly awesome that we want you to know about them! All products are sourced by our business team and then blindly put to the test by a group of editors who decide if they’re up to snuff. We’ll never stamp anything “Greatist Approved” unless we profoundly believe it’s best in class.
What It Is:
The term “weight loss program” may conjure memories of cheesy Jenny Craig commercials. RetroFit, however, cuts the gimmick and instead focuses on human accountability and numbers. Each user gains access to a team of experts with separate focuses on nutrition, mindset, and fitness (with a registered dietitian, exercise physiologist, and behavior coach) plus a Fitbit One activity tracker and a Fitbit Aria scale to track daily measurements. The yearlong program is designed to help users lose 10 to 15 percent of their body weight with the help of virtual conferences and frequent email communication.
While this service is mostly targeted to people who want to lose a substantial amount of weight, RetroFit can also help people who need to gain weight (the healthy way) or maintain it. We can’t fail to mention the very steep price tag ($148, $248, or $298 per month depending on how comprehensive a program the user desires). However, if purchased using the link below (or the discount code “GREATIST”), Retrofit is offering Greatist users a 34 percent discount, bringing the price as low as $98 per month for one-on-one coaching (and even less than that for group coaching).
Why It’s Greatist-Approved:
- Super comprehensive, with a human touch
- It’s an all-encompassing approach to healthy habit making — not just weight loss
