The problem HealthHub solves

Why HealthHub?

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted just about every aspect of ordinary life — and diet and exercise routines are no exception.

Work-from-home, remote learning, and public health guidelines for gyms and fitness facilities that include capacity limitations, cleaning protocols, mask wearing, and social distancing has changed how, when, and where we exercise.

Meal planning for a family, a challenge on its own, can be more so now with seclusion at home, more people to feed with different tastes, and more food stores with limited groceries and shopping times. There’s also the uncertainty of bare shelves, with normal staples of a nutritious diet unavailable, at least temporarily. It’s tempting to buy whatever is available, even if it’s not something that’s part of your normal diet which can throw plans for healthy eating out the window.

What we help with

  • Goals
    Your first step towards a healthy lifestyle is setting two goals. The first goal is your target number. Once you've set this goal, next is to figure out your deadline. Be realistic about them.

  • Exercise Plan
    Exercise at a local gym, go for a jog or try those workout videos at home! However you choose to exercise, a great way to help you stay focused on your goal is to use a fitness tracker.

  • Eating Right
    In addition to your new exercise routine, you will also be changing your diet. But don't think of it as dieting, you will simply be forming new and healthier eating habits.
