Get on Track Health and Wellness (GOT) is a 501(c)(3) organization located in Lombard, Illinois. GOT offers services and programs to empower youth and adolescents to prioritize health and spend less time on technology. These programs are customized to each individual and will focus on six key areas: movement, nutrition, mental wellness, strength and conditioning, coaching, and education.
The COVID-19 pandemic closed businesses, retail stores, schools, and churches around the country. For two years, children were forced to turn to technology for all education, social, and entertainment needs. GOT's inspiration is to create greater balance around this reliance on technology. The organization wants all youth and adolescents to have the guidance, tools, and confidence to adopt healthier lifestyle choices
GOT will draw from its 35 years in the Fitness and Wellness industry (working with youth and adults of all populations) to more effectively match our clients with the appropriate treatment and plan. Our commitment is between the youth/teen and the family.
GOT"s target market is technology-addicted, sedentary youth and adolescents. The end customer will be children, adolescents, and young adults ranging from age 18 to 35 who are addicted or have a mental preoccupation with technology. GOT will rely on the family (parents, grandparents, relatives, etc.) to identify their loved ones as exhibiting technology-addicted behavior. GOT will market its services to teachers and school districts who can help identify and refer students to GOT's programs and services.
