December 14 2016

London, UK, 13 December 2016 – Fitbug, provider of digital wellness for corporate organisations, formally announces their partnership with Olympic gold medallist Sally Gunnell, OBE, to help promote and expand on their digital wellness offering to businesses in the UK.

Drawing on her professional athletic career, Sally Gunnell and her team of experts have collaborated on a bespoke workplace wellbeing programme that will help companies to tackle health and wellness challenges that UK employees are facing. The partnership combines Sally’s programme with Fitbug’s scalable digital platform to offer an even more engaging corporate health and wellness proposition as they expand their reach to a wider client base.

Fitbug CEO Anna Gudmundson says; «Sally Gunnell represents great inspiration for positive change and reaching goals, and her brand reflects ‘positive energy’, which is our brand essence. The extensive knowledge and experience of Sally and her team, together with our intelligent, data-driven platforms allows for us to offer a remarkable programme to companies who are serious about their employee wellbeing goals.»

Sally Gunnell comments; «I’ve worked in the corporate market for many years now and research confirms what I know from experience; happy and healthy people are more productive, engaged and successful. Working with Fitbug allows us to reach a much larger audience and to provide a more powerful programme. We’ll have a bigger impact, and the opportunity to create a lasting health legacy within organisations we work with.»

Sally Gunnell remains the only woman ever to hold four major track titles concurrently - Olympic, World, European and Commonwealth. Following her retirement from international athletics, Sally developed a career as a television presenter and motivational speaker. She has written four books on fitness, health, self-fulfilment and wellbeing.

Fitbug is already being used by corporations around the world to create a positive culture of health in the workplace. Their solution empowers employers and individuals with the tools, technology and information to help maximise performance, reduce absenteeism and the risk of chronic illness, with the goal of lowering medical costs and insurance premiums.
