Who We Are
Welcome to our thriving, vibrant Take Shape For Life® community where we are redefining the path to health and well-being and creating Optimal Health™. You are joining a group of individuals who have discovered how to create health in their lives. They are living a full and active life by changing their eating habits, by growing and developing in their personal lives, and by becoming more financially stable as they build a business with Take Shape For Life®.
As a Health Coach, you provide many services to your Clients, including personal encouragement, supported by a clinically-proven, comprehensive lifestyle program. But that’s not all. By sharing the Trilogy of Optimal Health™—Healthy Body, Healthy Mind, and Healthy Finances—you are doing so much more to help others create balance in all three of these critical areas of life.
As more people make the choice to live a healthier, more active, and balanced life, Take Shape For Life® will be present, providing an opportunity for people—starting with you—to do well for themselves while doing something purposeful for others.
Medifast® is Take Shape For Life® ’s parent company. Our products and programs have been recommended by over 20,000 doctors since 1980*. The late Bradley T. MacDonald, Chairman Emeritus of the Board of Directors for Medifast, and Dr. Wayne Scott Andersen, a leading critical care physician, founded Take Shape For Life® by combining the science of our meal replacement products and Dr. Andersen’s healthy habit lifestyle program. They then added the component of personal support through the Health Coach, and it is this powerful blend that provides true and lasting results for individuals desiring to create more health in their lives.
Today, we are a growing, thriving, healthy lifestyle company, upholding our roots through scientific rigor in development and manufacturing standards. The company is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: MED), and family-run, following the legacy through our core values of integrity, entrepreneurship, and compassion that help transform lives.
