March 18, 2020

A commonly asked question in response to the COVID-19 pandemic is, how can we encourage our employees who are working remotely to stay physically AND mentally well while at home?



Many companies are currently offering free access to their wellbeing apps and content during the COVID-19 outbreak. Take advantage of the apps below to give your health a boost!



Peloton App – Peloton has extended its free trial membership to 90 days.  As a Peloton rider myself, I can tell you this app is amazing!  Best part? You don't have to own a Peloton bike. You can enjoy resources on cycling, outdoor running, treadmill runs, strength training, HIIT classes, yoga classes, boot camp, meditation, strength training and stretching.  You can find more information here
