What is Kurbo?
Kurbo is a mobile/online health and weight management program created specifically for families (children, teens, and adults). Our program is based on 30 years of research at Stanford University supporting children and teens in achieving their health and weight management goals. Kurbo combines the use of a state-of-the-art mobile app with expert health coaching to help families learn better eating habits, exercise more and take control of their weight to become healthier and more confident.
Kurbo health coaching is available for a 20% discount to International Union of Journeymen and Allied Trades members, spouses, and child dependents. They can enroll directly at kurbo.com.
How is the Kurbo program organized?
The two main components of Kurbo are a mobile app, which includes a food tracker, educational videos and fun games, and a Kurbo Health Coach, who provides feedback, motivation, and support. Participants meet with their coach via FaceTime or Skype weekly and can also contact their coach anytime via in-app messaging. Progress is monitored through an online dashboard.
What will the participant learn?
Kurbo participants learn basic nutrition skills to help them make healthier choices around food and exercise. Topics include portion control, understanding food labels, and the benefits of exercise. Participants also work with their coach to set personal goals around food and exercise to promote long-term lifestyle changes.
What is the time commitment?
Participants generally spend 10 – 15 minutes a day tracking food and exercise, plus weekly 15-minute coaching sessions. The basic program lasts 3 months, but many find coaching helpful for longer periods.
