Health IQ’s perspective on inclusion is awesome. Check out this quote from their website: “If you read the current team’s bios you will see that each of us has been touched by a personal or family health challenge. Most of us used this challenge to change our health destiny and improve our health.” Health IQ is a life insurance company that wants to reward health-conscious people. And seriously, they live it – there’s a gym right in the middle of their office.
Gym culture and fad diets can be overwhelming, intimidating, and demotivating. Individual bodies, standards of fitness, and general definitions of “health” – including mental – are as diverse and varying across the world as anything. Having an active and healthy life is hard. Overcoming chronic conditions is even harder. Health IQ helps you do this and rewards you for it. They believe the best way to improve the health of the world is to celebrate the health conscious rather than harassing those who are not.
