With community and connection more important than ever during the lockdown, WW (formerly Weight Watchers) has launched a series of temporary live virtual workshops to help people stay healthy. 

As part of the WW Workshop & Digital membership, all Virtual Workshops are free to attend, with members encouraged to enjoy the nearly 300 already live online and use them to look after their overall health and wellbeing during this time.

A spokesperson for the organisation said that no matter where they are in the country, members can choose to join any Live Virtual Workshop so they can help (and be helped by) loved ones, they said: “From long distance family members supporting each other through Virtual Workshops to our WW Coaches who host, we have a great selection of WW Success Stories who demonstrate the importance of being connected to a WW Coach and members to help them on their weight loss and wellness journey.”

The workshops include science-based strategies for weight loss led by an expert WW Coach to help build healthy habits that can last and goal-based meetings where people can get support from their fellow members and WW Workshop team to help them meet challenges and celebrate their success.

Anna Hill, general manager and SVP at WW UK added: “We are so excited to have launched our Live Virtual Workshops via the WW app. Now is the time, more than ever, that we should be putting our health first and we want to ensure our members are continuing to receive the tools they require to maintain their own healthy habits.

“We have had over 3,000 Virtual Workshops go live across the UK and over 200 of those in Scotland, it is great to see so many of our members attending from the comfort and safety of their own home receiving the support and personal connection from their WW Coach and friends.

“Community is at the heart of WW and members can join up with other WW members in their family to stay connected during this time. No matter where they are in the country, they can choose to join any Live Virtual Workshop so they can feel closer to loved ones.”
