Want to lose weight and keep it off?

Resource introduces the Innergy® Program


Resource is committed to support efforts that improve the health and wellness of our members. We continually look for new programs to offer and are excited to announce a new, innovative program offered by Healthways called Innergy, to our members in the health insurance pool. 

What is Innergy?

Innergy is a one-of-a-kind weight-loss program. Developed by Healthways and Johns Hopkins Medicine, it’s the only weight-loss solution demonstrated to be effective long-term in clinical research trials. With Innergy, an expert coach customizes a plan unique to you, providing easy-to-use digital tools and the guidance needed to achieve your goals.

How it works 

  • Personalized support through one-on-one coaching sessions 
  • Sessions available over the phone or online at times convenient to you 
  • A full two years of ongoing weight-loss guidance and management support 
  • Help to set realistic goals, build new skills and harness the extra motivation you need 
  • Guidance on eating healthy, satisfying foods based on your own preferences—no prepackaged foods and no diet pills 
  • Recommendations on how to increase your physical activity at a gradual, manageable  pace 
  • Personal online resources for additional inspiration and support through an anonymous, online member community, articles, recipes, flexible meal plans and more.

The unbeatable value: Participants are eligible for a discounted rate of $125 for the comprehensive two-year program. As an added bonus, Resource Training & Solutions will fully reimburse the fee if the participant reaches their goal after the first year. 
 

What you can expect

  • Your own Innergy coach and access to his or her online profile where you can easily sign up for coaching sessions. All Innergy coaches are trained in weight-loss science and routinely consult with experts at Johns Hopkins Medicine.
  • Regular coaching sessions to help you stay on track – once a week for the first 12 weeks and once a month for the rest of your first year. For ongoing maintenance during your second year, coaching sessions are scheduled every six to eight weeks.
  • A weekly online learning focus to help you master skills and strategies proven to be successful during each stage of weight loss and maintenance. 
  • Online/mobile trackers to follow your weight loss, dietary choices and progress toward your personal targets.
