LOS ANGELES, Oct. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ViSalus, Inc., the company behind the #1 90-Day weight-loss and fitness challenge platform in North America, announced today that its Michigan global headquarters is a 2013 Best and Brightest in Wellness Award winner. The honor included a feature profile in Corp! magazine's October 10, 2013 online issue (corpmagazine.com).
Bestowed on wellness companies that demonstrate innovation, the award was given to ViSalus, in part, for the extensive resources provided to employees. One of the amazing features of the Michigan office is a 2,500-square-foot state-of-the-art fitness facility where employees can take low-cost personal training and small group classes with flexible class times to accommodate different employee shifts. A centerpiece of the office is the 4,000-square-foot open-format kitchen and communal space where employees can snack on the ViSalus nutritional products, prepare food, and collaborate in a cool and stimulating environment.
"This award is a tribute to the environment we have created here at ViSalus," said Ryan Blair, ViSalus Co-Founder and CEO. "We are firm believers in aligning our corporate culture with that of our Promoters, who are all about promoting a healthy lifestyle through the Body by Vi Challenge™."

In addition to employees participating in the Body by Vi 90-Day Challenge, ViSalus offers "Shake n Learns" – fresh and fun on-site learning sessions. These sessions include experts in the health and wellness field coming on-site to interact with employees about topics, from eating and cooking healthy, to communicating ViSalus' product formulation and how it works, as well as providing introductions to such community resources as the American Red Cross. Employees are incentivized with such programs as Work Out and Win and the Vi Expert Fitness Program, which offer cash incentives for employees to exercise.
