Small lifestyle changes make a big impact on your health

Prescribe FIT is a proven lifestyle coaching program—not a fad diet or short-lived workout plan—that helps you improve your health at home by focusing on the root causes of your knee, hip, ankle, back, and joint issues.

Why Prescribe FIT?

Feel better and get back to the life you want. Prescribe FIT is different than anything you’ve tried before. We meet patients where they are in their health journey by forming personal connections to better understand motivations and challenges then provide tools to cope and maintain healthy lifestyle changes.

Prescribed by your doctor, customized to you.

You don’t have to make large sacrifices to decrease weight, reduce pain, improve mobility, eliminate medications, and better prepare for and recover from surgery. Our lifestyle health coaching program focuses on improving daily habits—such as nutrition and physical activity—to build sustainable healthy practices that address the root causes of chronic pain and other diseases. We’re here to be your guide on this journey.

How It Works

Enroll in the Program

Your doctor will determine if you’re a candidate for Prescribe FIT. Once your doctor prescribes the virtual lifestyle coaching program, you will receive a link to schedule your first call on our website. Patients should commit to at least 3 months but it typically takes 1 year to fully transform lifestyles.

02

Connect with Your Health Coach

Each patient is matched with a personal Health Coach Care Coordinator who is available for weekly 15-minute phone calls, in-app messaging, supportive advice and personalized recommendations.

Eat Healthier & Track Meals

With Prescribe FIT, there is no strict diet that you must follow to be successful in our program. Instead, we will assess your current eating habits and then teach you how to choose more nutritious food options, reduce frequency of eating, and decrease portion sizes. Meal tracking in-app is easy with barcode scanning that automatically records nutrient breakdowns of everything you’re eating.

Routinely Engage in Healthy Lifestyle Choices

As you progress through the program, you will begin to establish a new daily routine consisting of appropriate physical activity and healthy eating habits. Once you’re maintaining those lifestyle changes, your health coach will help you begin to incorporate additional changes like stress and sleep management advice, tips for moderating alcohol or tobacco use, and more.
