You may have heard of Herbalife Nutrition Clubs: they’re places where community members gather together to work on their weight loss or fitness journey. Nutrition Clubs are businesses owned and operated by Herbalife independent distributors – wellness coaches who recommend workout regimens and supplements for their customers.
In these trying times, nutrition and social motivation have become incredibly important as we navigate through a new normal. Nutrition Clubs have kept their mission of supporting customers by shifting to virtual communities.
Herbalife Nutrition Clubs are most active where they are most needed.
A study in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2016 confirmed that high-income Americans eat healthier, exercise more, smoke less, and live longer. The study also confirmed that low-income Americans lacked access to healthcare and lacked the tools for improving their health and nutrition. The experts writing for the Journal of the American Medical Association suggested that local intervention helps the neediest Americans find ways to improve their health and, by that, increase their wealth.
Building healthy communities is the goal of Herbalife Nutrition Clubs. Many lower-income Americans live in food deserts, where it’s not easy to get to a supermarket that has an affordable selection of fruit, vegetables, healthy proteins, and basic nutritional supplements. Many lower-income Americans also live in information deserts, where access to the latest information about eating right, exercising, and staying healthy is hard to come by.
Herbalife Nutrition Clubs take care of both of those needs and more. Herbalife Nutrition Clubs are a place where local members, who might have difficulty stretching their budgets to buy healthy food even if they had a car or cab fare, can stop in for a Herbalife shake and some socializing.
The independent distributors who run Herbalife Nutrition Clubs on their own properties are a kind of home away from home for health-minded people. They provide a healthy shake at an affordable price, but they are also there to lend a listening ear to their customers. They genuinely care about the people they serve. And with the information they get from Herbalife’s global team of health experts, they can pass on information in bite-sized nuggets to help their customers and neighbors navigate through a lot of diet-related misinformation.
How Herbalife Nutrition Clubs adjusted to the realities of the pandemic.
At the start of the pandemic, Herbalife Nutrition enacted several safety measures while limiting disruptions to their operations. The company ensured the safety of its employees, the continuity of its manufacturing, and the safe delivery of Herbalife products. But Herbalife independent distributors also had their work cut out for them. They had to make sure their customers could still get their protein shakes, healthy snacks, teas, aloes, sports nutrition products, and vitamin supplements.
Herbalife independent distributors also had to ensure their customers continued to get the encouragement and information they needed to stay on track for their best possible health even in the middle of a devastating pandemic.
To everyone’s surprise, except maybe the Herbalife independent distributors and their customers themselves, Herbalife Nutrition Clubs continued their vital work of education and encouragement online. The astonishing result was that Herbalife had a stellar year, with customers buying 14% more Herbalife products than the year before. That’s despite difficulties in meeting with their independent distributors.
Herbalife always comes up with a new flavor or a new product to meet the every changing needs and preferences of their customers. They recently launched a sports nutrition energy product called Herbalife24 Liftoff, made to support athletic performance. There’s always something new at Herbalife.
Herbalife’s independent distributors support their customers’ goals for good health every day. Herbalife is a thriving company built on supporting customers with great products, reliable science, and consistent care.
