About Us

Our mission

Our primary mission

is to help each individual

attain the best possible physical

and mental health throughout their life

At myhealthcheckup our primary goal is to help each individual attain the best possible physical and mental health throughout their life.

To accomplish this goal, we draw on the scientific expertise and clinical experience of our health professionals to educate, engage, and enable individuals to live healthy, happy, and productive lives for as long as possible.

The web-based programs that form the cornerstone of our health promotion services are based on the best scientific evidence available to maximize the probability of success for each participant.

Our clients and friends

Why us?

We acknowledge that changing human behavior is a serious challenge that should never be underestimated. Accordingly , our offerings are based on the following core beliefs:

Realistic Goals

For most people, making lifestyle changes is a real challenge... setting realistic goals for each individual is essential.

Personalized Approach

Each of us is unique... an individualized approach increases our likelihood of success.

Engaging Solutions

Most of us are impatient ... we are more likely to adhere to a program that is fun, engaging and provides tangible results in 8-12 weeks.


While short-term results are critical, there is no substitute for long-term success.

Provide Feedback

Monitoring the progress of the individuals enrolled in our programs is critical to our success and yours.


Constantly analyzing the results generated by our programs is what makes us unique. We are health professionals and scientists guided by evidence.

What drives us

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy at myhealthcheckup is that “While life may be short, living better is at least as important as living longer”. Accordingly, our health programs are designed to be engaging, enjoyable, and make participants feel happier and healthier as quickly as possible.We believe that making healthy lifestyle changes is a long-term commitment and few of us will succeed if we are not having fun along the way.

Keep it simple” is also important because most of us don’t have the time or interest to become health care experts. We just want the information we require to make informed choices and occasional help from the right professionals when we need it.

Our Objective

Our objective is to make you, your family, your friends, and your fellow employees not only healthier but happier as well.

Our Principles

Be Open and Honest About Both Our Successes and Our Failures
Successful programs can only be developed through rigorous research that objectively identifies both strengths and weaknesses.

Embrace Change
If a health intervention is shown not to work then develop one that does.

Multidisciplinary Teams are Essential
Successful, “patient centered” health promotion requires input from many different professionals with a wide range of experiences and expertise.

It’s Important to be First, but More Important to be the Best
Getting it right takes time and effort.

If it’s not Fun then it won’t Work
Few of us can maintain life-style habits that we don’t eventually come to enjoy.
