What happens at a Virtual Workshop?
To keep our members and Coaches safe, we're currently running Virtual Workshops. That means you can attend your Workshop from home! Find a Virtual Workshop.
Update: in line with government guidance, we will begin to offer Express Workshops from 5th July in a few carefully selected locations. Find out more about Express Workshops.

"I can't express how grateful I am for the WW community. Thank you for all you are doing in this very difficult and lonely time."— WW member
"I think Virtual Workshops are a really good way of getting everyone together in these uncertain times. It's great that we can support each other, just like in a normal Workshop! It will help everyone's mental health too, knowing there are others around to reach out to."— WW member
What usually happens at a WW Workshop?
WW Workshops are a friendly, supportive environment, where everyone is working towards the common goal of losing weight and building healthy habits that last.
These weekly Workshops are run by WW Coaches who are trained in weight loss, nutrition and behaviour change. Many also have personal experience of the WW programme, and the success that comes with it. They know the programme inside-out, and are fully equipped to support you on your weight loss and wellbeing journey.
When you arrive, you'll have a private Wellness Check-In with your Coach (this is when you weigh in, if you choose). Then, you’ll take a seat ready for the Workshop, where you'll learn a science-based strategy for weight loss. Fun and informative, the discussion gives members the chance to share ideas, celebrate success and help each other find solutions for any challenges.
What happens in Virtual Workshops?
Given world events, we are taking preventative steps to keep our members and employees safe. After careful consideration, we're currently running Virtual Workshops (live video), rather than in-person Workshops.
That means you can still attend your Workshop, just from home.
Virtual Workshops will be held via Zoom video conferencing, and will last for around 30 minutes. As always, you'll learn science-based strategies for weight loss, get support from your WW Coach and fellow members to help you meet challenges, and celebrate your success with the WW community.
Weigh-in will occur in the WW app only.
This video on our official YouTube channel provides a step-by-step guide to joining a Virtual Workshop (and gives you a sneak peek of the WW app, too!).
Get the support you need
We know that you turn to us for support, and that community is key to your success. That will not change, and you won’t have to go it alone.
In this unprecedented time, we’ll provide you with all the tools you need to stay on your journey without worry, including bringing your Coach to you.
Remember, the WW app has everything you need to succeed at your fingertips! In addition to NEW Virtual Workshops you've also got access to:
- 2000+ recipes including handy collections like batch cooking and lunchtime inspiration
- 24/7 chat with a WW Coach
- Our amazing online community, Connect, where you can share stories, swap tips and feel inspired
- Mini Headspace meditations
- Guided audio workouts with Aaptiv
- And so much more! Check out these quick video tutorials to discover what else our 4.8* rated app can do.
Benefits of Virtual Workshops
There are plenty of great benefits of Virtual Workshops:
If you don’t like being on camera, you can shut off the video setting at any time. Your weigh-in will happen via the app only.
2. Constant support
Staying (virtually) connected with others is important, now more than ever. Remember, you can communicate with your fellow members in your Connect group at any time, not just during the live Workshop.
Virtual Workshops can happen right from home - you don't even have to leave the sofa!
