League makes it easier to break a sweat and find family care with new partnerships

TORONTO, Feb. 1, 2017 /CNW/ - League, the digital alternative to traditional health insurance, today announced it is further expanding its footprint and partnering with some of Canada's best and most innovative health and wellness providers to help members live their best lives and improve family care.

Two of the most recent partnerships include GoodLife Fitness and BookJane.

GoodLife, Canada's leading fitness club chain, will offer League members discounted access to all club locations, fitness classes and wellness programs across the country.

"We strive to give every Canadian the opportunity to live a fit and healthy good life," said Michael Boyce, Vice President of Business Development at GoodLife. "Our partnership with League will allow us to be part of a new and emerging way of bringing health benefits to Canadian employees. Fitness is a major part of living a healthy lifestyle, and positioning GoodLife Fitness as part of League's Lifestyle Spending Accounts will deliver this message directly to employees."

Working to empower employees to take control of their family health needs and have access to the better care they deserve, League has partnered with BookJane, the on-demand, mobile and web platform that connects trusted, qualified caregivers with families. The service offers caregiving for any age group, whether required for an infant or a senior.  

"The challenges and pressure on many young families today to balance care for their loved ones is the cause of significant stress, that hasn't gone unnoticed by employers," said Curtis Khan, CEO and founder of BookJane. "By partnering with League, we are providing our clients with increased access to family health and wellness services that can help them manage the wellbeing of their entire family."

In turn, League now has instant access to over 1000 fully vetted and qualified caregivers, personal support workers and early childhood educators.

League's partnership initiatives give the company the opportunity to learn about new tools for the prevention and treatment of many common health concerns.

"We are forging truly great partnerships in the industry, companies that continue to push the boundaries of personal health and wellbeing," said Michael Serbinis, CEO and founder of League. "By working together through a personalized, integrated digital experience, we are removing some of the complexities that prevent people from making their health a priority— and giving our members the support they need, right at their fingertips."
