Create a community of support, motivation, and accountability by taking Wellbeats classes together. It’s now easier than ever to connect with your fellow Wellbeats members and play classes together—no matter where you are. By scheduling a Wellbeats class and inviting others to join you, you can play classes with others in real-time without ever leaving your home.
Wellbeats recreates the sense of community often felt in group fitness classes by augmenting the social class experience with interactive chat. Wellbeats’ virtual room allows members who are invited to a class to interact before class in a virtual lobby, during the class in an adjacent chat window (portal only), and after class, where they also see a list of recommended classes.
With Wellbeats’ Friends and Family Feature, members can invite up to five others—whether a spouse, friend, family member, or neighbor—to stay healthy together with Wellbeats. Invitees receive the same unlimited access to all Wellbeats classes and programs. Combined with Wellbeats’ social features, members can create a community of support, motivation, and accountability while being healthy together. In fact, members play 2–3.5 times as many classes and class minutes after inviting friends and family to Wellbeats.
