The digital health company now offers their employer and Medicare Advantage networks unlimited access to BurnAlong’s online video classes and social support platform
TAMPA, Fla (February 20, 2020) -- Peerfit, the digital health company that works with employers and insurance carriers to fully fund fitness experiences for their employees and members, announced today that they will be partnering with fellow corporate wellness platform BurnAlong, in order to offer Peerfit members access to BurnAlong’s library of online video classes and social motivation features. This partnership comes on the heels of Peerfit's expansion into the Medicare Advantage space with Peerfit Move, a new fitness benefit that is available to Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement plan members since January 2020.
BurnAlong started in 2016 out of a desire to bring people, wherever they are, the fitness and wellness programming and the social motivation and support they need to live a healthy life. With hundreds of instructors across forty-five different categories, including “Fit over 50” and chronic conditions like diabetes, stress, and insomnia, BurnAlong offers something for everyone whatever their age, interest, or fitness level. Classes can be done anywhere you have an internet connection on your phone, tablet, or computer.
In addition to taking classes alone, on-demand or live, BurnAlong also provides the very popular option of taking live online classes with others – where you can see and hear the people you invite. With 1 in 3 seniors reporting that they’re lonely, coupled with the transportation challenge many seniors face, this brings people both the social motivation and programming aspects of wellness they need.
For those with Peerfit as their corporate wellness benefit, BurnAlong can be accessed for a small credit charge each month. Through Peerfit Move, members will have free access to their own personal BurnAlong membership.
“The power of social motivation for seniors and employees is seen every day during in-person wellness classes,” said Daniel Freedman, Co-CEO of BurnAlong, “We’re extremely excited to be partnering with Peerfit to bring this social motivation and choice of classes to all those people who can’t make it, or don’t have access to, in-person classes.”
By coming together, Peerfit and BurnAlong hope to bridge their offline and online services to foster community amongst Peerfit members and combat the growing loneliness epidemic. Peerfit users will now be able to access this streaming service right through their Peerfit dashboard, anytime, anywhere.
“We couldn't be more excited to offer BurnAlong's content to Peerfit benefit recipients”, said Peerfit VP of Wellness Solutions, Chris Patton. “The ability for our members to build positive, lasting healthy habits with the community that BurnAlong has created, no matter the age of the individual, makes our work together that much more impactful.”
