We not too long ago wrapped this 12 months’s first Tremendous Weekend gathering of coaches throughout North America, the U.Ok. and France — and of all of the thrilling new matters mentioned, one dominated all of them: “What’s Well being Esteem, and why are we altering the identify of the platform from Beachbody to BODi?”
I’m getting requested this lots these days. Right here’s the reply.
There’s a large untapped market that rejects the Imperfection Financial system’s health and diet options as a result of most adults don’t wish to be informed what to do. They don’t wish to sacrifice having fun with life. And so they don’t wish to be made to really feel they’re unworthy until they’re pursuing a bodily best.
Right here’s why that issues: Greater than 150 million adults in North America are exhibiting us they don’t assume the result’s well worth the sacrifice, and so they don’t wish to spend money and time on the prospect of failing or including extra judgment to their lives.
However they do wish to really feel good — and so they wish to be wholesome.
That may be a large market that wants an answer — one which doesn’t make them really feel like shit about themselves of their pursuit of getting and feeling wholesome. A platform that gives confirmed, complete options with out a judgmental subtext will assist them succeed and really feel welcome.
And the barrier to entry is low: Merely changing high-sugar/high-calorie dessert habits with a scrumptious superfood swap is an efficient place to begin. “Don’t wish to work out? I get it. How about dessert?”
This is a chance to assist tens of millions of individuals improve their enjoyment of life and obtain wholesome/predictable weight reduction whereas supporting their shallowness on the identical time.
That’s Well being Esteem, a brand new class that helps individuals be ok with themselves and take motion to get wholesome — on their phrases.
With our huge array of applications and approaches, and the mixing of recent positive-mindset grasp courses every month, we’re reworking into the corporate that may assist these 150 million individuals search and obtain excessive Well being Esteem.
So, we’re altering our identify from Beachbody to BODi, as a result of we reject the premise of the Imperfection Financial system, which prioritizes bodily look above all else. We’re as an alternative shifting towards this new, holistic class — Well being Esteem — and a reputation to mirror our evolution.
“Outcomes” and aesthetics nonetheless play a job — individuals care about how they give the impression of being, and our instruments are highly effective. However that’s secondary to how individuals wish to really feel, as a result of persons are happiest after they really feel good. And comfortable clients are one of the best clients.
We have gotten the world’s first Well being Esteem Platform, the place it at all times feels good to be your self when you work on your self. And we’re celebrating this class all January, the formally acknowledged World Well being Esteem Month.
We’ve had a superb 24 years as Beachbody. We helped lots of people. However we’re taking our foot off the brake and shifting into a brand new gear as we simplify what it takes to get wholesome and comfortable — and it’s resonating like nothing we now have achieved earlier than.
We’re BODi. And that is Well being Esteem.
