Our story starts with one woman — Jenny Craig. When she struggled to lose weight after the birth of her second child, she realized there weren’t many sustainable options to help her reach her goal.
In the early 1960s, Mrs. Craig started working at a local gym and saw firsthand that exercise alone doesn’t lead to long-term weight loss. Her passion led to the opening of her own gym, and after years of success, in 1983, she and her late husband, Sid Craig, opened their first Jenny Craig Weight Loss Center.
Mrs. Craig took what she learned through her personal journey and years of working in the industry to create a comprehensive approach to weight loss that included portioned, great-tasting and nutritious food, the support of a personal coach, and the tools to help build and sustain a healthy lifestyle.
Flash forward to today: Millions of people have changed their lives because of her program, which has been in existence for almost 40 years.
“It’s not what you do once in a while, it’s what you do day in and day out that makes the difference.”
