Payroll coordinator Brande Ventura admits she was skeptical when she first heard about the Live Well program at Millennium Partners Sports Club Management.

“I’ve read countless articles and books telling me to eat this, do that, don’t do this,” she said. “I expected the same old song and dance.”

To her surprise, the wellness program delivered a message that clicked almost immediately with Ventura. She soon learned tips, nutritional advice and exercises that inspired and motivated her — and went beyond what she already knew.

“This program has taught me something that nothing else has — that my health should be the No. 1 priority,” Ventura said. “I’ve never been able to follow a program with such consistency before and gotten such amazing results.”

As developer and operator of the The Sports Club/LA and Reebok/NY clubs in Boston, San Francisco, Miami, New York and Washington, D.C. — including a new, smaller style of club that opened recently in Chestnut Hill and is meant to be more sustainable — midsize company Healthiest Employer winner Millennium knows it has to practice what it preaches when it comes to health and wellness, said Chief Marketing Officer Teresa Coffey-Gordon.

“For us to serve our membership base, we have to understand our community and what motivates them and how our services and products can improve people’s lives,” she said. ”And the best way to understand that is to experience it first hand.”

Chief Executive Officer Smairya Million said the firm was pleasantly surprised by a nearly 80 percent participation rate when the Live Well program was launched, with employees eager to take part in online education and phone-based coaching to help customize programs.
