building knowledge and success
one workshop at a time
The first Weight Watchers meetings were born over 59 years ago, when founder Jean Nidetch, a housewife in Queens, New York, gathered her friends to discuss their struggles with weight loss. And while Weight Watchers has evolved over the years, what made the first meetings a success still benefits approximately 1.5 million members who attend Workshops around the world each week: the power of Motivation, Inspiration and Information lead to success. That’s why It remains the cornerstone of Weight Watchers of Philadelphia experience.
the importance of a supportive and like-minded community is proven
At Weight Watchers of Philadelphia we believe the support a member gets at Workshops is the greatest benefit of the experience.
In fact, it’s been proven! Members who attended the most meetings lost more weight than those who attended less. Really! A clinical research study showed:
those with highest attendance were
more likely to lose weight
compared to those with
low workshop attendance!*

here’s what happens at a Weight Watchers workshop
attend your workshop once weekly.
During your first visit, you’ll discover so much about yourself and find a program tailor-made to suit your lifestyle and your preferences. Personalized goals will be discussed between you and your Coach.
check in with your Weight Watchers Guide.
Your weekly check-in experience is centered around self-reflection and recognition of your healthy behaviors, in addition to monitoring your weight loss. You’ll privately step on the scale and have a conversation with your Guide about goals you want to set for the week and celebrate the non-scale victories you might not have given yourself credit for otherwise.
meet your Coach.
Every person in the Studio is on your side, from the Coach to the other Members. They’ll quickly become your greatest motivators and sources of support.
your weekly workshop will last around 30 minutes.
It’ll cover a topic that’s relevant to weight loss, activity, mindset and sleep. Every week we have a new topic so you are constantly discovering you more as you relate to the topic. Enjoy the conversation with your fellow Members. They’re bound to bring up relatable experiences.
afterwards, stick around.
Our short (but very helpful) Kickstart orientation will teach you the nuts and bolts of how the simplified program works. It’s totally low key, and a great way to get to know us a little better and make a game plan for your first week.
