WellWorks Celebrates 25 Years

WellWorks is proud to be celebrating over 25 years of service to the greater Athens community. 

"We didn’t get to have our formal 25 year celebration that we had planned for 2020, so we took that energy and put it toward developing new member benefits and services," said Engagement and Marketing Coordinator Annie Laurie  Cadmus.

 

"It is our mission to create supportive environments for people to pursue their life’s adventures, so we feel it’s important for our community to know that our facility is fully operational with many new services since our reopening," explained Jenn Bennett, Executive Director of Wellbeing.

WellWorks prides itself on being a superior student experiential learning experience. A large percentage of the WellWorks staffing is comprised of students gaining real world experience in relevant work positions such as customer service, management, personal training, marketing, and equipment repair/maintenance. WellWorks full-time staff works to offer students unique professional development opportunities to help them prepare for life post-graduation.

 

"We are constantly adapting our program offerings based on member feedback," explained Cadmus.  "Members can offer feedback in-person at the front desk or anonymously through our online feedback form."  Cadmus explained that, by being a local facility, WellWorks has the freedom to make changes faster than some national chains. "When you call our office, you connect with a member of our community who cares about your experience."  

 

"In a time where our community is struggling to adapt to a constantly changing world, WellWorks aims to be a constant source of wellbeing support," said Bennett.
