It’s almost a wrap on 2022 and WHAT a year it has been for us. 💫
After relaunching Work Me Shape Me following the pandemic this January, and our Founder Vanessa quitting her corporate job to go full time in the fitness and health industry, this year has been absolutely life changing!
And this absolutely incredible journey would not have been possible without our wonderful community members, so we want to thank you all for coming along for the ride.
Our mission was to normalise working out as a social activity – to encourage more people to stay active and make more in-person meaningful connections that keep us feeling healthy, happy and balanced! Proving that you can workout and have fun at the same time, uplifting our overall wellbeing.
And I think we proved that point pretty damn well this year with all the fun sweats and socials we’ve been having, don’t you?!
Here are some of our highlights from the last year. Get ready for a wild recap of just how far we’ve come in only 12 months…
WMSM Glow Up 💁🏻♀️
With a new logo and a fresh lick of paint, our rebrand had all the fun and energy of our events. With a friendly new font, vibrant and bright colours, our new shiny logo helped us welcome in fresh faces to our events.
New Connections Were Made 💘
We built new relationships with brands, helping run an incredible range of events in new gym spaces and hospitality venues. We hosted everything from birthday parties, work socials and made the perfect match with our friends at Thursday, helping singles mingle in a spontaneous and fun new way and bond over a shared love for fitness.
Brand Collaborations Galore 🎉
The restaurant selection and fitness studio suites we got to do events with created the most incredible experiences for our community. Plus, we were thrilled to work with so many incredible brands this year! Thank you for helping us make the most epic events and goodie bags! Check out this absolutely stellar line up…
This year we hosted events at Victus Soul, Digme, Camden Boxing Club, The Fore, Rowbots, Sweat by BXR, Barrys, Flow LDN, Fly LDN and Metabolic! Post workout socials were held at the most epic restaurants, including Ambr, Bubula, Rosa’s Thai, Camino, Where the Pancakes are, Alchemist, Pergola on the Wharf, Pargola Paddington and Bobo Social! Plus brands such as Gym plus Coffee, Acid Run, Kind and Bol. Big shoutout to these guys!!
Founder Fun in the Startup Space 🚀
We delved into the ever evolving landscape of the startup health and fitness industry, offering our expertise and knowledge in the events and wellbeing industry, working with brands to support their small businesses. Helping other start-up founders strengthen their communities and build brand awareness.
And above all we helped create a well rounded, inclusive and established group of reoccurring attendees - building a beautiful, healthy community of absolute legends.
So what’s coming up in 2023 at Work Me Shape Me? 😍
We’re so glad you asked…
- Hosting more frequent community events to continue to build our epic community! Our OG workout and socials will be coming back in full force and we’ll also be bringing in new concepts (like going to fitness festivals together - we cannot wait for this!) ⛺️
- Continue to break down the taboo that working out is just for fitness people and that working out is not a social activity. You don’t have to choose between after work drinks or a workout. Why not both? Sweat then drinks?? Or opt for a healthier choice of sweat and food.
- WMSM is expanding… We’ll be venturing out of London and bringing our events to other cities. We will also be looking for event hosts! Drop us an email if you love health, fitness, food, community and you are interested in hearing more!
