Waitrose and John Lewis launch virtual health and wellbeing workshops
Waitrose and John Lewis have teamed up with health and life insurer Vitality to launch a series of free virtual workshops on health and wellbeing.
Available exclusively to myWaitrose and myJohn Lewis members, the sessions have been designed to address some of the undesirable effects of lockdown such as poor posture from long spells working at home, disturbed sleep patterns and unhealthy eating habits.
From this week, both retailers’ members are being invited to book onto the classes which include talks by in-house Waitrose nutritionists, family fitness classes with Olympic swimmer Lizzie Simmonds and Olympic Modern Pentathlete Samantha Murra, as well as cardio sessions run by Vitality’s own in-house clinicians and coaches.
There will also be classes on posture principles including a session run by Olympian Lord Seb Coe and a Vitality physiotherapist
Classes will take place every Wednesday throughout June.
Peter Cross, director of customer experience at Waitrose and John Lewis, said: “Lockdown will have taken its toll on us all in different ways, whether it’s long hours working on an unsuitable chair in our bedrooms, unhealthy snacking, disturbed sleep or lack of proper exercise, as well as the impact on our mental health. We’re really excited to be doing our bit to help and have created a broad range of content with some of the nation’s superstars as well as our own in house experts to look at wellbeing from a variety of angles – we hope that there’s something here for everyone however small.”
A range of other virtual services have been launched for customers by Waitrose and John Lewis in recent weeks, including nursery, home and styling advice services.
