The WW Workshop in the Workplace program provides the flexibility of the all-new Freestyle Program. Built and based on the WW science-backed SmartPoints® system, WW Freestyle encourages you to eat more fruits, veggies, lean protein, and less sugar and unhealthy fats.
Learn how to spend your personalized SmartPoints Budget on any food you like, learn more about ZeroPoint foods, on how you can use “rollovers” to transfer extra SmartPoints to another day, keeping the program flexible and livable.
You’ll also receive the added support of the WW Mobile app with your enrollment in either the monthly pass or online program. This is just another way that WW can help you stay on task and remain flexible with you.
The monthly pass is a convenient choice for employees at any campus who want to try WW 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 have full access to WW digital tools 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 Workplace 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.
Employees, family members and students may choose to follow the WW program entirely online, for a monthly cost of $19.95 by selecting WW Digital. This gives individuals the convenience of following the program at their own pace, through the WW app and website. You will be able to track your food, activity & weight any time using WW Digital tools. You will also enjoy more than 4,000 delicious recipes and get access to Connect, the private WW Online community.

The incentive program for employees who have medical coverage through Medical Mutual of Ohio will continue for the monthly pass. Reimbursement depends on the number of At Work meetings attended.
