To whom it may concern:
Thank you for taking the time to read my Mission Statement and Bio. I am honored to be a candidate for your Online Health and Wellness program. I would love for Kootenai Medical Center to be the FIRST Medical Facility to endorse Melfit and lead the way for many other Hospitals. I know with our changing times we have to continue to build morale, grow, and adapt to Covid 19. We currently do not have a vaccine and in order to ensure the safety of your employees, an online health and wellness plan is crucial. I know that over the last 2 Months there has been a lot of uncertainty, weight gain, depression, and even suicides. Let’s reassure your employees that you are going to continue providing an excellent health and wellness plan for years to come. Before I sold my brick and mortar studio, I only Coached one client at at time and it was nearly impossible to sanitize “everything” they touched. Your employees are “already” putting themselves at risk everyday and they don’t need their workouts to be stressful as well. I think that moving to an online platform can save your employees time, money, and stress. Your greatest wealth is your health! Melfit is SO much more than a gym membership! Melfit is an online health and fitness app that will be changing “and” saving lives for years to come. Although I know I can’t save everyone, I would love to continue to save lives right here in my hometown! Cheers to your health! I look forward to working with you in the near future.
