What a year! Our acquisition by LifeSpeak in February 2022 highlighted an exciting year of growth and gratitude for Wellbeats. We’re grateful for all that 2022 brought, and we look forward to supporting total wellness alongside the entire LifeSpeak family in 2023.
We want to send a big thank you to all our clients, partners, consultants, and members who have supported us on this journey!
Enhancing the Member Experience
Whether it’s by expanding class offerings, welcoming new instructors, or incorporating member feedback, Wellbeats is constantly seeking out new ways to improve the experience of all our members. This year we created 250+ new classes and 135 educational tips to keep members motivated and added four new categories of classes: circuits, Pilates, barre, and warm-up/cooldown. We transitioned to a new, state-of-the-art studio set too.
Over the course of the year, Wellbeats released 11 new programs and added the ability for members to enroll in multiple programs simultaneously. Wellbeats also partnered with LifeSpeak and Launch My Health to provide enhanced content libraries with 130+ expert mental health and 120+ clinical nutrition classes. We also debuted new hubs for client and member resources and opened our Wellbeats-branded swag store.
This year’s enhancements to the member experience included new product features that encourage community engagement. Members play 2 to 3.5 times as many classes or class minutes after inviting friends and family to Wellbeats, so new features encourage family and friends to stay healthy together. Wellbeats members can now schedule classes to take with others, chat with others before, during, and after scheduled classes, or invite friends and family to use Wellbeats.
