BATTLE CREEK, Mich. –
The Battle Creek Morale, Welfare and Recreation office is providing free employee access to Wellbeats, an online fitness provider that delivers on-demand classes, challenges, and fitness assessments to its subscribers anytime, anywhere.
Martha Kerns, MWR fitness facility manager at the Hart-Dole-Inouye Federal Center, said Wellbeats offers more than 600 classes appropriate for all - from beginners to more advanced users. The classes include workouts for people with no access to fitness equipment.
“Wellbeats has numerous videos, from one minute to 60 minutes, that I encourage you take advantage of,” said Robin Nichols, president of the American Federation of Government Employees Local 1626. “I have downloaded the app and each hour I turn on a one- to five-minute video to stretch, do deep breathing and de-stress. It is making a difference.”
Kerns said while the program is currently free for DLA employees, they must first receive an access code to use Wellbeats from their local MWR where they are stationed.
