Schneider Benefits: No-Cost 'Real Appeal' Weight Loss Program Transforming Lives

By Jessica Cortes Jan 16, 2018

In January 2016, Schneider began offering Real Appeal® — a digital weight loss program available at no additional cost as part of Schneider’s health plan benefits.* We are excited to announce that since we launched the program, more than 1,000 Schneider associates have joined and lost 6,200 pounds!

Real Appeal Weight Loss Program Success Stories


Randy – lost 63 pounds

During a workplace health screening a nurse suggested Schneider office associate Randy try Real Appeal.

“I truly enjoyed the weekly meetings, learning techniques and skills to combat the physical and psychological challenges involved in this transformation. Real Appeal came at the perfect time, two weeks before my 30th wedding anniversary.

“I was feeling down in the dumps and when the nurse told me my results at my screening I knew it was time for a change.” I took the Real Appeal postcard home and discussed it with my family and enrolled the next day.”

Steven – lost 70 pounds

Steven is a Schneider truck driver from Bensalem, Penn. At 6-foot-1 he weighed over 350 pounds, suffered from leg swelling and was taking medication for high cholesterol. He knew he needed to get healthier, but didn’t quite know where to start. When a buddy from work suggested he try Real Appeal, Steven thought he had nothing to lose.

When Steven attended his first Real Appeal session, he was so impressed with his transformation coach that he was all in. He followed the customized plan his coach designed for him and within a couple of weeks the weight began to come off. By week four he had lost 12 pounds and started taking walks instead of sitting in the truck when he was waiting for a customer or trailer. Within months he dropped 70 pounds, is off his cholesterol medication and feels more energy than he has in years.

Real Appeal is committed to sparking transformation that is in every one of us. The weight loss program helps associates and eligible dependents* lose weight, achieve better health and lifelong wellness through online group classes, a transformation coach, nutritional and fitness guides and tracking apps. Real Appeal members benefit from a customized program that meets each individual’s lifestyle and weight loss goals.

We support healthy lifestyles.

At Schneider, we know the importance of health and wellness. That’s why we encourage our associates to take advantage of our impressive benefits package.
