Lobo Strong Health & Wellness

Longview ISD's FREE wellness program is focused on getting active, eating better, and living well. The best part of the new health and wellness program? It is fun and you can earn a variety of rewards for engaging! We have lots of incentives such as the two local days the school board has approved, jeans day designated by the campus principal, fun t-shirts, water bottles, and many more rewards at different point levels.

The Virgin Pulse platform makes it easy, giving you access to fun new wellness offerings, challenges, and programs that give you choice, support, and the flexibility you need to reach your wellness goals--and it's all brought together within the top-rated Virgin Pulse app.

What is Virgin Pulse?

Virgin Pulse is a company that works with organizations 'to deliver a total health and wellbeing solution for employees that drives sustainable, long-term behavior change and supports organizations in building a culture of health.

Throughout the last few years, educators have been under a great deal of stress. Virgin Pulse provides a technology platform to help facilitate our health-conscience initiative to support the well-being of our employees and empower them to lead healthier and happier lives both mentally and physically.

Where can I use it?

We have also teamed up with three local gyms to offer discounts to LISD employees, Crunch Fitness, Christus Good Shepherd Institute for Healthy Living, and ViewPoint (formerly known as Parkway) Fitness. We have a fitness calendar which is led by your fellow coworkers throughout the district and are of no charge to you. This can be found on the Virgin Pulse app. 

All LISD employees are eligible at NO COST! Sign up here.
