The global holistic health and wellness app Verv, which focuses on the interconnections between physical activity, nutrition, sleep and mindfulness, recently announced a free three-month subscription to its app available for all U.S. college students on the iOS platform, according to a press release. For other users, a three-month Premium subscription costs $29.99.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, per Active Minds, 39% of students in college experienced a significant mental health issue and experts predict this number will increase while Boston University reports the depression rate has tripled among U.S. adults. As students return to campus with increased stress and anxiety, Verv understands the critical need to support this group.
New college users will get full access to a range of workouts, guided meditations, recipes including budget-friendly snack ideas, relaxing sounds for studying or sleeping, and more. The offer has no hidden fees or strings attached, and doesn’t require any billing information. To start the free three-month subscription, students just need to submit their college email address at www.verv.com/students and they will get an email with activation instructions.
“It’s part of Verv’s brand values to give back to the community and we’re focused on helping people maintain a healthier lifestyle and combat stress and anxiety due to current events,” said Verv CEO Luba Pashkovskaya. “Our hope is that hundreds of thousands of young adults take advantage of this free offer and join our community.”
Highlights of the Verv app include:
● A wide variety of workouts from yoga and running to interval workouts, resistance band fitness, dance fitness and more.
● 400 vegan, keto and other recipes and meal planning tips
● More than 40 meditations
● 1,000 workout music playlists
● 100 ASMR, sleep stories and sounds
Verv is a top-rated app and all content is created by professionals with deep experience in fitness and technology. It’s available on the App Store and will be coming soon to Android. App downloads continue to increase at an unprecedented pace, emphasizing the need for quality health and wellness programming during this uncertain time.
“Now is the time to put your well-being first. Even just a few minutes a day can have a profound impact on your college experience and life,” said Dr. Dominique Gummelt, Verv’s Wellness Expert and the Director of University Wellness at Andrews University.
