Weight Watchers at Work

 

Lose Weight, Feel Good with Weight Watchers at Work

The university continues to offer the Weight Watchers at Work program to all full and part time employees, their dependents and university students.  

Weight Watchers at Work includes the new Points Plus program and e-tools to make losing weight easier while still enjoying many of the foods you like to eat. You can also use Weight Watchers Mobile app with your enrollment in either the monthly pass or online program. This is a  great way to help you stay on task using your smart phone.

Weight Watchers Meetings with Monthly Pass 

The monthly pass is a good choice for employees at any campus who want to try Weight Watchers but do not want a lengthy commitment.  The monthly pass gives you greater control and flexibility to determine what works best with your schedule.  You can attend an "at work" meeting or take advantage of unlimited access to meetings in your community. You will also be able to use eTools to track weight, find great recipes and more.

The monthly cost for a pass is $44.95 (effective 12/15/15).

  • Sessions will be held on Wednesdays, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Kent Student Center, Room 303 (room location is subject to change).  

Please note that with the new payment offerings, the At Work sessions will now run continually, with no end date. However, a minimum of 20 members must be enrolled for each class session and a minimum of eight attendees present for each meeting (even if just to weigh in) in order to keep the meeting site on the Kent campus.

If you are signing up for the At Work session, you will be asked to select a location during the registration process. If the Kent State At Work location does not appear, select any location within that zip code. This will allow you to complete the registration process.

Weight Watchers Online

Employees, family members and students may choose to follow the Weight Watchers program entirely online, for a monthly cost of $19.95. This gives individuals the convenience of following the program at their own pace, from any location. There are tailored websites for men and women, interactive tools to track eating habits and activity and access to more than 1,500 recipes.

Medical Mutual Reimbursement

The incentive program for employees who have medical coverage through Medical Mutual of Ohio will continue for employees who sign up for the monthly pass. Members reimbursement depends on the number of At Work meetings attended.  You will receive a $50 reimbursement for attending at least 10 meetings in a 12-week series or 14 meetings in a 17-week series. Members are eligible for a maximum reimbursement of $150 per calendar year by completing the Medical Mutual Reimbursement Form (PDF).  There is no reimbursement for the online program.
