Michael McCright

I'm Michael McCright owner of Together I Can Weigh Loss Center. I provide Health Alternatives for an Enhanced Lifestyle.

I coach people, on how to lose weight effectively, keep it off, and move from surviving to thriving.

In other words, I assist them in moving towards optimal health, becoming more fully functional in today's rat race. I assist them in developing a healthy body, a healthy mind, and healthy Spirit.

If you or someone you know really desires Health, and desires to live a longer, Healthier life. I can help them!

Give me permission to coach and guide you. I want to become your partner.

  • A "Together i Can" attitude makes a person want to ask for and accept support for those areas in their lives where they might be lacking.
  • The "Together i Can" philosophy puts the welfare of everyone on an equal status.

I have been involved in the nutrition industry since 1972. As a Holistic Health Practitioner I incorporated weight loss into my practice in 1992. I have since become a Certified Health Coach and utilize Optavia™ as a method of Losing Weight in (Phase 1) of our weight loss program. FREE Health Coaching assists you through a Transition Phase (Phase 2) and follows you into the Maintenance Phase (Phase 3) of the program. You’ll never be alone on your journey.

I have used and recommended Herbs, Nutritional products, and Essential Oils in my practice since 1972. It wasn't until 2013 when I was introduced to Take Shape for Life that my nutritional coaching became complete. I could always coach and train individuals in healthy lifestyles, and provide knowledge that would permit them to get healthy. What was missing was the medically formulated meal replacements that had complete balanced nutrition. Not only balanced nutrition but also formulated to put a body into a fat burning (keto) state of being.

Michael's Before and After

The picture on the left is me at age 71 and on the right at age 76. I’ve lost the weight and kept it off. It’s possible, I lost over 20 pounds and have kept it off for over 5 years. If I can do you, so can you!

I now feel that I can provide a complete package for those seeking to lose weight, keep it off and strive for Optimal Health.
