When it comes to enhancing your fitness regimen, all it takes is a little exploration to find a program or type of class that works best for you. With Wellbeats Wellness, a product of LifeSpeak Inc., members can discover a vast array of activities to try out and dive into further. That is the beauty of our premium wellness solution – there is an activity for everyone, regardless of interest or skill level.
For Melissa Medenwald, Senior Accounting Specialist at CHS, her mornings start with an impactful workout from Wellbeats Wellness. As a remote employee, Melissa says that Wellbeats Wellness has integrated nicely into her daily routine simply due to its convenience factor.
“I live on a farm, and I’m not even close to a place like a gym, so I kind of wanted a solution that I could do something that works for me,” said Melissa.
Since the beginning of 2023, Melissa’s mornings have kicked into hyper gear. After she sees her child off to school, she will get started with a Wellbeats Wellness workout. Melissa’s cool-off includes 60 minutes on her treadmill. By 8:30 AM, Melissa says she already has approximately 6,000 steps clocked in. With a satisfying workout ticked off her daily ‘to-do’ list, she can proceed throughout the day with confidence and a sense of accomplishment.
CHS rolled out Wellbeats Wellness a couple of years ago. Melissa says she tried it out initially, but it wasn’t until recently that she became a super-user. Her wellness journey began with trying out the deeply motivating fitness programs. Melissa says that the structure of the programs keeps her on track with her goals. With her sister-in-law’s wedding around the corner, Melissa shifted her fitness goals so she could feel her absolute best that day.
“At the beginning of the year, I did the first program, which was 8 weeks – and it was 15 to 50 minutes, and it was very nice how it was structured,” said Melissa. “I’m a very indecisive person, so it was nice that everything was very structured, saying you do this, and then you do that. You follow the program. For me, it works very well.”
Melissa says that Wellbeats Wellness has lots of programs to offer. She has gotten her whole family involved in an exciting activity.
“I know one time we did do the family fitness one (I have a couple of kids), and we did that one a couple of times. They [the family] got into it,” said Melissa.
With so many programs to engage with, what is Melissa’s favorite?
“It’s weird because I don’t look like I’m a kickboxer by any means, but that just seems like the most enjoyable to me because it’s repetition and almost kind of like a dance,” said Melissa.
When it comes down to it, Melissa wants to work out without it feeling like a chore.
“I want to exercise without actually thinking like ‘let’s count all these reps’ or something like that,” said Melissa.
Melissa says that since there are a lot of programs and activities, it’s a matter of finding one that works best for your lifestyle. Melissa also mentions that after a little exploration of the wellness solution, more of her co-workers may be inclined to find that Wellbeats Wellness fits perfectly into their daily routines and aligns with their specific wellness interests.
