We've got recipe collections you'll love.

3. 24/7 support from a WW Coach

No matter the question, our WW Coaches are online to answer 24/7 via live chat. Coach Vanessa Watkins says: “We cover all kinds of topics, whether it's helping members find something on the website or giving advice about healthier takeaway options.”

Shift workers and stay-at-home parents are just some of our members that stand to benefit from 24-hour support, Watkins adds. “The round-the-clock online chat tool is perfect if you're really busy or have to wait until the kids are in bed to get things done,” she says.

“We get everyone, from breastfeeding mums chatting to us in the middle of the night to commuters who connect with us on their way to work. Members know they'll get someone who can provide direction and offer support whenever they need it.”


4. Members-only social community 

Connect is our digital community for members. It's a positive and inspirational space to share tips and recipes, and make new friends. Share your photos and progress, and follow other members on their journeys. It's the best place to hang out for a motivation boost! And with Connect Groups, you can follow like-minded members from pet owners to foodies.


5. Additional features, including virtual experiences

Explore members-only content including meal plans, shopping lists, how-to app guides, audio workouts with Aaptiv (listen to a sample here), mini meditations with Headspace and weekly techniques that help you to eat healthier, shift your mindset and move more. We've also introduced an exciting range of live virtual experiences in the app, including cookalongs, workouts and city tours. 

Our Workshops are currently virtual! If you like the idea of staying connected, a Workshop + Digital membership unlocks unlimited access to our fantastic Virtual Workshops, where you'll get expert advice from a WW Coach and share stories, successes and tips with other WW members.
