Shortlister hosted Sarah Ziemer, Senior Vice President of Corporate Sales at Wellbeats to get insights on what wellness looks like in a post-covid world, and trends around what HR leaders are buying today in health and wellness benefits and what employees expect. We are also taking a sneak peek into Wellbeats’ upcoming innovation and platform release.
In 2008, Wellbeats began as a video-based fitness solution played in gyms across the country. Today, they have evolved into a virtual fitness, mindfulness and nutrition platform built exclusively for businesses, bringing employees and their families what they need to live a healthier life.
With over 2500 clients and 1.5 million members across all industries, Wellbeats is a scalable, affordable, and easy-to-use virtual fitness, mindfulness and nutrition platform that empowers habits regarding physical and mental health.
With COVID-19, many gyms are still closed, routines have changed, and people have prioritized the need for physical and mental health. In fact, 82% of Millennials and 76% of consumers are now exercising more at home, and 66% of all consumers say they prefer it. Seniors are also looking for tools to stay resilient, healthy, and positive.
Combining fitness, mindfulness, and nutrition, Wellbeats’ mission is to address head-on the increasing employer demand to improve mental and emotional health, as well as increase physical activity for all employees, not just the already fit ones.
As a pioneer of the virtual fitness space, the Wellbeats difference lies within the quality and variety of content, ease of use, security, and innovation. With over 700 exercises, nutrition, and mindfulness classes, there is something for every age, interest, environment, and ability level.
Wellbeats is working on the future right now. In 2021, Wellbeats will debut the next evolution of their platform. Wellbeats is sharing expert knowledge about how to get moving, de-stress, eat smart, stay motivated and include the family.
Today it has never been more obvious that a focus on health must extend into total wellness, from improving emotional well-being to strengthening physical fitness, from nutrition to movement to meditation. Wellbeats is making a significant change when it comes to better serve the health and wellness needs of businesses, their employees, and their families.
