Our President’s Initiative is Health and Wellness for correctional officers, so it was important for us to deliver an engaging experience in our Wellness Lounge for attendees of our virtual conference. Dr. Kim’s Byte Size Wellness Academy enabled us to provide a wealth of practical and engaging activities for our attendees with no effort on our part. Hundreds of attendees took advantage of these resources which made it a great value too!

I hired X-Bytes in order to deliver the exercise video, branded with our company name, during a medical congress. It was a unique way of engagaing our clients and differentiated us from our competition as our brand stood out in an unusual way. The videos were well received and positioned to our medical clients, as a way of enhancing their learning experience during the conference. Also in order to get a better uptake, we ensured the presenter, president and in-coming president positioned the videos well as well as performed them on-stage. Because of the uniqueness of this offering, many of our clients approached us afterwards to inform us they had thoroughly enjoyed this value-add. Working with the X-Bytes team, and Kim in particular, was a breeze. We got the product delivered on time, with the changes we requested, in a friendly and timely fashion.

We used the Virtual Wellness Lounge for two of our virtual conferences. Attendees were able to access the lounge through our platform and it was very easy to integrate into our system. While we have faced many challenges in the virtual world, the “silver lining” is that by providing more free time between sessions, our attendees were able to take advantage of the brief (byte-sized!) content the Virtual Wellness Lounge offered. We had a high number of people who logged in, and it was very rewarding to see that our attendees were able to stay engaged and energized during the conference by taking advantage of the videos in the Wellness Lounge.

Never in my wildest dreams did I think the XBytes fitness breaks would be as well received as they were at our conference. My goal was to try something new and see how it went. Our conservative scientific conference attendees normally sit quietly, awaiting the start of a session. When we incorporated fitness breaks into the beginning of each session, I was amazed at how many people stood up and participated, laughed out loud, interacted enthusiastically and generally, had fun. XBytes breaks provided a great icebreaker and bonded audience members. They were also friendly conversation starters during conference networking functions as people joked about how much fun they had. Overall, we plan to use XBytes fitness breaks again at future conferences. The XBytes team is very enthusiastic and accommodating. We believe they are really breaking the mold with these fitness breaks.

We incorporated a fitness and wellness area on the IBTM America show floor this past June. The wellness area was strategically placed at the hub of our show, where buyers and exhibitors could connect, engage in conversation and have informal networking. The area was extremely well-received by our attendees. It gave them an opportunity to relax, stretch and learn how to stay fit while traveling and having a busy show schedule. It created additional touch-points for exhibitors to meet buyers, build relationships, connect with peers and of course have some fun! Dr. Kim had a fantastic program which truly engaged our exhibitors and attendees.

We conduct a lot of experiments at our PYM LIVE Events for meeting and event planners nationwide and by far the most successful one was the inclusion of Exercise (x bytes) Bytes Fitness Breaks. We used them to create a physical and mental refreshment break. By inserting them into the half-way point of the most business-oriented segment of our event, we were able to get people up, moving and ready to tackle the second half. We also found that they were terrific for setting a different "tone" if we were transitioning from one section of the event to the next. They were a natural icebreaker and instantly made the events more fun. Plus, we were able to physically show the benefits of including wellness programming in an event schedule to the very people responsible for doing so. From an event organizer perspective, I loved that they weren't dependent on Internet access, that I had a variety of options from which to choose, that physical limitations were accommodated and that Kim and her team were so easy to work with. I'd highly recommend this product to other meeting/event planners and even HR professionals in charge of employee wellness programs.

Dr. Kim’s virtual wellness lounge was such a surprising and needed element for a virtual live event I recently attended! All of the stretches and exercises she demonstrated were easy to follow and exactly what my body needed after sitting for long hours during the event. Even my kids joined in on the exercises after they’d been sitting all day for virtual school! I highly recommend this virtual wellness lounge for any event to give the attendees a well-rounded experience for their minds and bodies.

I had the privilege of booking X bytes for their first meetings industry conference, The Society of Government Meeting Professionals 31st Annual National Education Conference. We showcased the X byte exercise videos prior to the start of our education sessions and it was awesome! These videos kept our attendees alert, excited and eager to learn! The audience absolutely loved them! The X bytes team is passionate, organized and a pleasure to work with. I can’t wait to use them again at future events!

X bytes was the perfect way to engage our hospitality professionals during our events. After sitting in a chair for an extended period of time, they were able to stretch and work the muscles without breaking a sweat or having to change their clothing. It was an opportunity for them to let loose a little bit and refresh before diving back into the education that we provided. Dr. Kim was great to work with as well, very professional and explained all of the videos in detail to ensure we were set for success.
-- Meeting Professional
Kim has created a successful service that enhances health and wellness and gets people up and moving in fun and interactive way. I used X-Bytes at a conference for a fitness break, and everyone was smiling and enjoying the experience. X bytes definitely provided a well-needed energy boost for everyone.
