Note: In honor of National Nutrition Month, WW is celebrating healthy eating with an exclusive offer: Purchase a WW membership plan between March 9 and March 28, 2020 and get a free WW cookbook bundle. New members have until April 11 to redeem this offer.
 
WW® (Weight Watchers Reimagined) stands for the world’s partner in wellness. More than a global leader in weight loss, WW welcomes anyone who wants to build healthy habits—whether that means eating better, moving more, developing a positive mindset, focusing on weight…or all of the above!
 
Loyola employees are eligible for WW® discounts, reimbursement, access to free digital and mobile tools, and other membership benefits:
  • Employees can select any payment option, but must attend weekly sessions (Digital Plan subscriptions are not eligible for reimbursement)
  • Employees who sign up for a WW Digital + StudioTM Plan subscription via our online portal will receive a new lowered special rate (as of September 2019) of $40.00 per month for 12 months based on attendance
For more information, view the WW Offer Summary, or please see the sections below. If you have questions, contact WW Customer Service at 866.204.2885.
When you need support, you can always count on Connect—WW’s private social network exclusively for WW members. Members who have a WW Digital + Workshop are able to join a Connect group through the WW app, which is a Virtual Studio, during the COVID-19 crisis when in-person meetings are not taking place.

Virtual Workshops began Thursday, March 19. The link to join and schedule of Workshop times are available in the Virtual Studio. It also serves as a hub for Studio members to post, get strategies from a WW Coach, and stay updated.

To find a Connect group:
1. Open Connect in the WW app, and click “See all” next to groups.
2. Scroll to the bottom of the page, and tap “Browse groups.”
3. In the search bar, type in your state’s postal abbreviation + the word “Workshop” in the search bar (e.g. “IL Workshop” if you’re in Illinois; “IN Workshop” if you’re in Indiana, etc.).
4. Select the location you normally visit.
5. Don’t see your usual Workshop? Yours has been rolled into a larger Virtual Workshop, so check out other groups in your area.
