Jen Ottovegio spent the last 15 years in the corporate environment and repeatedly saw how onsite wellness classes were offered with good intentions, but poorly managed.
It was clear that fitness, yoga, and meditation classes offered in office and apartment buildings were undeniably effective at managing stress, increasing productivity, and improving wellbeing. Not to mention, highly desired by tenants & employees. The downside was, these classes can be a headache for building owners, property managers, and HR teams.
Her goal in starting Zest was to make onsite wellness programming that’s both highly effective for participants and also painless for building owners to implement, manage, and evolve.
Jen’s mission is to help people live healthier, happier, and more connected lives.
Zest has a large network of incredibly talented fitness instructors, yoga teachers, meditation facilitators, and wellness experts on staff.
When you become a Zest client, we will play matchmaker until we get the right instructor fit. (We do our homework, so it usually happens right the first time). Instructors are selected to lead your classes based on their personality, training background, and schedule… and of course the preferences of the tenants, residents and employees that are participating. Our instructors show up on time, reflect your brand well, put your people at ease, and deliver the most effective programming possible.
Should you want to add or change classes up, Zest has a wide variety of experts that can teach different styles—giving you endless options for fresh programming. Whether you offer 1 or 100 classes per week, you will always have one point of contact, making Zest the easy way to manage onsite programming across properties.
While our offering spans from yoga to bootcamps, meditation to dance classes… Zest offers more than just the classes themselves.
For example, we are serious about data and conduct pre and post-event surveys to ensure we are delivering what people want, and more. Zest compiles that data into robust Tenant Insight Reports (for properties) or Employee Insight Reports (for businesses), which you can use to keep your finger on the pulse of your team… for programming and beyond.
The icing on the cake is that Zest offers full class promotion support, which is critical to the success of any onsite program you run.
