Central Wellness CEO Jerry Lynch is passionate about improving the health and wellness of employees while improving the bottom line for businesses by reducing healthcare costs.
For more than 25 years, Jerry has run successful manufacturing businesses where he sponsored weight loss/healthy eating series, walking/running challenges and smoking cessation programs for employees. After discovering his own health risks during a company-sponsored Health Risk Assessment, he redoubled his efforts as a passionate health and wellness advocate.
In 2006, Jerry’s smoking cessation program, which lowered healthcare costs at his business by helping employees decrease their health risk factors and become more fit, was highlighted on the front page of Crain’s Cleveland Business
. Five years later, he became the co-owner of a leading health and fitness facility. In 2013, he founded Central Wellness to offer tools to other companies seeking to improve employees’ health while lowering healthcare costs.
An avid cyclist, Jerry is a spinning instructor and a member of a multi-sport racing team. He has completed four Ironman triathlons, 38 marathons, and many half- and Olympic-distance triathlons.
