About the program
Harvey Brooker is a program made by men, for men. We truly care about what we do because we’ve been there ourselves. As men, we know how hard it can be to deal with weight loss and find a proper, life-changing solution. At Harvey Brooker, we offer you your first meeting free. We want you to see the success with your own eyes. We are extremely confident in our services and want you to see why!
Take a look at our Google reviews at the bottom of this page to see the positive things that our members have to say about our program.
Our program focuses mostly on improving your eating habits and supporting you through your weight loss journey. However, exercise and physical activity are extremely important and are often talked about in our program. We provide several different levels of at-home workout videos created specifically for our program!
Everybody is different. We focus on long-term success by helping you develop eating habits that are realistic and sustainable. We are not a restrictive weight-loss program, and you will never go hungry. Members lose 2-3lbs. every week!
A lot of diets starve you, causing you to rapidly lose weight. However, this weight loss never lasts and you always end up back to where you started or worse.
Attending weekly meetings is a key component of our program and it will get you to lose weight. It builds consistency, and accountability, and allows us to make sure you’re staying on track week after week.
For your convenience, we offer three meetings a week, both online and in-person to best fit your schedule. Meeting recordings are also posted to our members-only site if you’re unable to attend one of the live meetings. We contact members who miss meetings regularly to ensure the program works for them.
Absolutely. Members often express that their entire household begins to make healthier eating choices after they’ve joined our program, and even lose weight themselves. Set a healthy precedent and lead by example!
Meeting with a coach 1-to-1 is not required and many members achieve success by solely attending group meetings. However, the 1-to-1 support can be extremely useful in the development of a personalized plan based on your needs, as well as potentially including important people in your life who are supporting you through your weight-loss journey.
In-person meetings are held every Tuesday night, running from 7 to 8 pm at 3701 Chesswood Drive, North York.
Our live virtual meetings are held every Sunday Morning from 10-11 am and Wednesday evening from 7 to 8 pm.
