Wellbeats is dedicated to providing fitness, nutrition, and mindfulness solutions for everyone, regardless of their perspective, background, beliefs, experiences, skills, or lifestyle. Accordingly, “Wellbeats for All” focuses on inclusivity, representation, and community.
While ‘Wellbeats for All’ is universal, it requires precision,” Wellbeats president and CEO Jason Von Bank said. “It’s providing a health and wellness solution that is affordable, accessible, and approachable while simultaneously catering to our individual members’ needs and wants with personalized options.
“We believe in celebrating our differences while finding ways to unite us, whether it’s through common goals, struggles, or beliefs. We’re all stronger together.”
Inclusive Global Community
Wellbeats strives to accommodate and unite members on their individual wellness journeys, establishing a sense of belonging throughout our community.
“We’re proud that the Wellbeats community is a global community,” said Jeff Kennefick, Wellbeats senior vice president for product and experience. “We serve a diverse group of members representing thousands of businesses in over 90 countries, and we strive to meet you wherever you are—whoever you are—by creating a welcoming space where everyone is included, seen, and heard.
“Our goal is for all of our members to find content that works for them within our collection of classes spanning fitness, nutrition, and mindfulness,” Kennefick continued. “We not only hope that our members connect with our instructors, but with the entire Wellbeats community.”
We encourage our members to access our classes wherever they feel most comfortable, and our instructors lead classes in ways designed to help all participants feel welcome. We’re committed to delivering an approachable, accessible, and affordable virtual wellness solution, giving everyone the best opportunity to improve their health and wellbeing.
“Establishing a welcoming and inclusive environment creates space for all of us to be able to show up and thrive as the best versions of ourselves,” Jen Zygmunt, Wellbeats chief revenue officer, said. “Inclusivity is at the core of our mission here at Wellbeats—where wellbeing is for all.”
Representation is a crucial first step in bringing to life our Wellbeats mission that wellbeing is not just for some—but for all. It can help people to find community support, encouragement, and validation.
“I’m proud of our commitment to seek out diverse representation among our instructors,” Wellbeats Director of Fitness Mark Kingsriter said. “We know that our community is looking for an affordable, accessible, and approachable wellness solution, and one of the first steps to achieving that is through representation. Our instructors, just like our clients and members, come from all different backgrounds.”
In an article for HR Daily Advisor titled, “To Succeed with Well-Being, Make Sure All Feel Welcome,” Wellbeats president and CEO Jason Von Bank noted that it becomes easier to keep everyone interested in working out when instructors are able to engage participants. Accordingly, our integrated and custom goal-based programs seek to engage the whole person and the whole population in fitness.
Whether it’s by expanding our class offerings, welcoming new instructors, or incorporating member feedback, Wellbeats is constantly seeking out new ways to improve the experience of all our members. We’re proud of our ongoing commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion—including our overall mission that wellness is not just for some but for all.
