Cleveland Clinic & Curves
Cleveland Clinic is an integrated healthcare delivery system with local, national and international reach. Cleveland Clinic is a nonprofit, multispecialty academic medical center that integrates clinical and hospital care with research and education. In 2013, Cleveland Clinic was once again ranked as one of America’s top 4 hospitals in U.S News & World Report’s annual ‘America’s Best Hospitals” survey. 2013 also marks the 19th consecutive year of Cleveland Clinic’s ranking as number 1 in the nation for heart care.
Curves and Cleveland Clinic share a mission of health, wellness, and prevention, as well as the belief that a healthy population is more productive and requires less health care. Together they have established the Cleveland Clinic Certification program that is exclusive to Curves. Cleveland Clinic also houses a groundbreaking integrated wellness program for its employees, of which Curves is an important component.
One-on-one coaching is at the heart of the Curves Complete program. Each and every Curves Complete Coach completes the Cleveland Clinic Certification, and undergoes rigorous training including a comprehensive workshop and extensive testing. This empowers the Curves Coach to ensure the member is challenged and is meeting their weight loss and health goals in a safe, effective way. The Cleveland Clinic Certification is based on “behavior modification,” or teaching participants how to change their habits to incorporate healthy choices in their day-to-day lives, thus creating a lifetime of health. Curves Complete participants meet with their Cleveland Clinic certified Curves Coach each week and receive a convenient, easy to follow sheet outlining their plan, including their food choices for each meal and snack, exercise goals, water and vitamin goals, and motivation goals. And, there is always a Curves Coach inside the Circuit to help fitness participants.
