Two Big Losers Bring Profile Success to Sarasota
In 2016, Gery Baar lost 50 pounds as a Profile member and improved his health and lifestyle. So he jumped at the opportunity to bring the benefits of Profile to Sarasotans with a Profile by Sanford franchise. He hired Phillip Bourgerie who lost 100 lbs on the Profile Plan and has been a Manager in Training with Profile for six months.
“The Profile Plan was easier and more effective than anything I had ever tried to lose weight,” Gery said. “The weekly one-on-one coaching by Certified Coaches made the difference, they helped me meet the challenges of weight loss and made it a permanent change and lifestyle improvement”, he said. Phil added, “I am thrilled at what Profile did for me, and now I’m passionate about helping others improve their own lives”.
In addition to personal Profile success, Gery and Phil bring substantial business experience to the Profile Sarasota operation. This is Gery’s fourth franchise concept and Phil brings significant retail management and expansion experience. They have plans for multiple locations in Sarasota and Manatee counties. Both are impressed with the quality training and resources provided by Profile which is backed by Sanford Health, one of the nation’s largest not-for-profit healthcare organizations. Sarasota is the first Florida location, 14 other Profile locations are in development in Florida, with many more expected.
Profile was developed by leading physicians and researchers at Sanford Health. The Profile Plan is simple, and that’s why it works. It’s simple to acquire, simple to understand, and simple to follow for healthy results that last a lifetime. Everyone has their challenges, and that's why Certified Coaches are there to help you conquer them.
The Profile Sarasota store will be located in the EXPO on Clark Plaza at Clark & Sawyer Road and will open in the July-August time-frame. Anyone can join immediately and receive coaching by phone until the Sarasota store opens. The first 150 members can join for a discounted annual membership of $50, a savings of $250. The membership includes a personal weight loss plan, access to weekly one-on-one coaching, discounts on nearly 80 Profile foods, and a smart body scale & home link bridge.
