The month of April marks a dedicated time to celebrate the unique cultures, backgrounds, and differences among us in honor of Celebrate Diversity Month! Wellbeats is proud to celebrate diversity this month and all year round, but the idea of #WellbeatsForAll is more than just a celebration. At Wellbeats, welcoming and honoring diverse perspectives is a way of life.
With a diverse group of members representing thousands of businesses in over 90 countries, Wellbeats gives people of every age, interest, body type, situation, and ability level the same opportunity to live a healthier life. We’re proud to provide an affordable, accessible, and approachable health and wellness solution that caters to our individual members’ needs and wants with personalized options.
By finding value in both our similarities and our differences, we gain a greater appreciation of each other and the diversity that surrounds us. We believe in celebrating our differences while finding ways to unite us each and every day.
Celebrate Diversity Month was initiated in 2004 to recognize and honor the diversity surrounding us all. The goal is that people will gain a deeper understanding of each other by celebrating differences and similarities during the month of April.
With Wellbeats, wellbeing isn’t just for some. It’s for all. We encourage our members to access our virtual fitness, nutrition, and mindfulness classes anytime—from wherever they feel comfortable. Our instructors lead classes in ways designed to help all participants feel welcome. Ours is a global community, and we strive to reflect that in all we do.
“One thing I love about what we’re doing at Wellbeats is the approach we’re taking to align our day-to-day work with our overall mission to provide all people the opportunity to live a healthier life,” Wellbeats president and LifeSpeak COO Jason Von Bank said. “We’re committed to approaching our workplace with professionalism and respect for each other’s unique and diverse perspectives, backgrounds, characteristics, skills, and life experiences.”
Our classes span all ages and ability levels to meet our members where they are and honor their individual interests and needs. With 1,000+ classes including yoga, HIIT, strength training, running, walking, mindfulness, meditation, nutrition education, recipes, cycling, circuits, kickboxing, dance, work breaks, stretching, and more, there’s something for everyone, regardless of their lifestyle.

Here at Wellbeats, we’re proud of our ongoing commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion. The company’s DE&I committee has subcommittees focusing on holidays and events, volunteer and philanthropic opportunities, and company-wide trainings.
