San Luis Obispo, CA (PRWEB) September 09, 2015
MINDBODY, Inc. (NASDAQ:MB), the leading provider of cloud-based business management software for the wellness services industry, recently celebrated the debut of Connect US, a film that follows the company’s 3,000 mile road trip to highlight a diversity of wellness businesses, from New York to California.
The documentary begins at the annual Solstice in Times Square, New York, where MINDBODY’s Co-founder* and Evangelist, Blake Beltram, joins thousands of others for a full day of yoga. Beltram then embarks on a challenge to see if he can use the company’s mobile consumer app, MINDBODY Connect, to find, book and partake in a health, wellness and beauty service in each state crossed during the 3,000 mile, five day trek back to MINDBODY’s headquarters in San Luis Obispo, CA.
“Driving through the heart of America and witnessing our subscribers positively influencing their communities was magical,” said Beltram. “It became clear that these wellness providers, and our team members, are connected to the global wellness movement through a common thread - passion. This movie embodies both revelation and celebration of the passion behind our subscribers - the tens of thousands of individuals that have dedicated themselves to building a healthier, happier world.”
MINDBODY Connect links consumers to MINDBODY’s global network of wellness businesses, so consumers can find, book and pay for classes and appointments in their community and on the road. At the end of March 2015, the mobile app had seen over 1.6 million unique users since it launched in November 2013.
The growing consumer focus on health is mirrored through the burgeoning wellness market. An analysis by the growth partnership firm, Frost and Sullivan, estimated a $9.5 billion market for business software solutions targeted at wellness businesses this year and expects the market to grow to $15.3 billion in 2018.
