Weight Watchers

Onsite WW workshops are not being held at this time. Members who have purchased the “Digital + Workshop” option, can attend virtual workshops in the community.   Starting July 2 at noon a new virtual workshop will begin just for Yale members!

Being Well at Yale is excited to partner with WW (formerly know as Weight Watchers).  Active, benefit-eligible Yale Faculty, Staff and Postdoc Associates can take advantage of the WW Freestyle™ program with a subsidy reducing the cost of membership by more than 50% off the regular membership price!  

New this year- the WW subsidy is now extended to spouses and domestic partners of active, benefit-eligible Yale Faculty, Staff and Postdoc Associates!  

The WW program is  founded on a scientifically-based approach to weight management that helps you eat better by following the SmartPoints® system, move more at your own pace, and positively shift your mindset.  Its personalized approach focuses on you, not just a number on the scale.  

Already a member?  Invite a friend- if they join WW, you both receive a free gift!
