Peloton Is Making Moves Into Corporate Wellness

When a company has multiple ways to make money, investors often say that the company has optionality. Peloton (NASDAQ:PTON) the workout-at-home company, has recently announced its getting into corporate wellness. This could potentially turn into a massive growth opportunity for the brand. On a MotleyFool Live episode recorded on June 30, Fool contributors Brian Feroldi and Brian Stoffel talk about the early results from the initiative. Brian Stoffel: I'm going to move on to a much smaller company, which is Peloton. Peloton's an interesting company because it's one that when it went public, I thought it was one of the most ridiculous things in the world. Like $2500 for a machine and that's it.

Naomi Osaka: How Prioritising Mental Wellness Can Go Against the Rules

Japanese tennis star Naomi Osaka announced that she would withdraw from the French Open after she was fined and threatened with being disqualified for not speaking to media during the tournament to protect her mental health. French Open officials and others initially reacted not with concern but by criticising her for not fulfilling her obligations. This occurred despite the fact that her refusal came after a first-round win, unlike others fined for skipping press conferences after losses. The evolving maelstrom that has followed weighs two priorities – the obligation to fulfill one’s job requirements, which in Osaka’s case includes talking to the press – and protecting one’s mental wellness. While a physical injury is routinely accepted as a legitimate reason for not performing aspects ...

4 Wellness Design Trends the Experts Say Are Here to Stay

A year or so ago, the word wellness hit differently than it does today. With health and wellbeing top of mind for the world, wellness-oriented spaces in both commercial and residential settings are prioritizing much more than just relaxation and pampering. “The pandemic has crystallized the need we all have for mental and physical health, and we have had time to reflect on our pace of life and the impact of technology, both good and bad,” says designer Jo Littlefair of Goddard Littlefair, who recently designed spas for both Southbank Place and Chelsea Barracks in London. “This, in turn, means that as designers of interior spaces we need to articulate a response that delivers on not only an aesthetic level but [also] creates an environment to alter moods and assist rejuvenation.” Continue...
