Psychologists who once studied the impact of positivity within the workplace are learning that the same sort of positivity is applicable to all areas of life. Creating a positive, supportive environment is at the heart of what helped the people of Coshocton, Ohio live healthier, more active lives. Herbalife Nutrition distributors saw an opportunity to effect positive change in their town and dedicated themselves to helping this tight-knit community eat right and get in shape.
Coshocton before Herbalife Nutrition
Coshocton is a small town in northeast Ohio. It’s a small community whose livelihood has been tied to the work at several factories for decades. Often times, factory labor requires long days with physically taxing work that can take a toll on the body after several years. According to a study done by the Fair Labor Association, over half of factory workers work 60 hours a week or more.
According to local resident and Herbalife Nutrition distributor Rochelle Byers, this hard working community had a growing need for healthy alternatives to after work pizza joints and fast food restaurants. According to an Ohio State survey done in 2016, hospitals listed cardiovascular disease as their number one most persistent issue. This issue is almost always marked by a consistent lack of good nutrition and physical activity.
Finding a Solution
Rochelle and her husband Dave saw the problem as an opportunity to step in and make a difference. Both Rochelle and Dave Byers are part of the Herbalife Nutrition family, and they undertook a mission to create a sense of community that revolved around healthy lifestyle options. Dave opened an Herbalife Nutrition community club called Healthy’s that focuses on a holistic approach to a healthier lifestyle. Rochelle and Dave’s community club offers Herbalife Nutrition protein shakes, teas and aloe, giving Coshocton residents what they need for a nutritious meal or snack. According to Dave, in addition to nutrition products, they offer so many community health activities that it is nearly impossible for anyone to have an excuse not to join them and start their journey to a healthier version of themselves.
What is truly unique about the program is the attention to personalized nutrition for each individual customer and the supportive nature that comes with it. Dave and Rochelle recognize that Coshocton residents are at different stages of their journeys. Unlike many other nutrition plans that are specific to losing weight and gaining muscle, Healthy’s programs and activities encourage individuals to achieve their own personal goals. This means that anyone, at any age and at any point in their journey, can participate in fitness and nutrition that supports their needs and goals in a supportive environment and atmosphere.
In describing his community and his job, Dave Byers has said, “I absolutely love what I get to do every day. I tell people this all the time—that I get to hang out with 200 of my closest friends everyday, and to me that’s not work.”
