healthier, more productive workforce as opposed to relying on employee
participation as the sole measure of success.”
myHealthCheck empowers employees to take personal responsibility for their
health and empowers employers to author a results-based health benefits
strategy that encourages personal responsibility and rewards employees for
positive change. Coupled with Life Time’s more than 2,600 fitness
professionals, more than 60 registered dietitians, online fitness and cooking
videos, myPlan™ workout and nutrition trackers myHealthCheck makes it easy.

with a personalized health profile to set personalized goals and measure
progress. Users can track their exercise, nutrition, weight loss and more

In 2011, Life Time introduced myHealthCheck at Allina Hospitals & Clinics, a
not-for-profit family of hospitals, clinics and other care services throughout
Minnesota and western Wisconsin. myHealthCheck is optional for Allina’s 12,000
employees but between 70 and 75 percent of those eligible, including their
spouses, participated in the program and a majority received full credit
toward their health care premiums.
Life Time’s myHealthCheck program is led by trained technicians and wellness
coach professionals who assist each employee with their wellness profile in a
mobile LifeLab at their corporate work place or at Life Time centers.
Employees are provided with an online dashboard to track their nutrition and
exercise. The myHealthCheck team remains available to each employee to provide
ongoing support by answering questions and providing online coaching.
