Will Smith and Fitbit Team Up to Tackle Physical and Mental Health


Physical and mental health is becoming more and more important to the Black community. Compared to their white counterparts, Black men and women are more likely to have high blood pressure and more likely to die from heart disease. Fitbit is dedicated to the health and wellness of all and they have recently teamed up with Will Smith to tackle his physical appearance and mental health.



Last year was tough for everyone, including celebrities. The inability to get out and be socially engaged caused a great deal of stress amongst us all. While during lockdown many of us sat still and ate as there was little else for us to do. Will has stated that he was in “the worst shape of his life” and is adamant about making a change.



Smith will create exclusive content across social, Fitbit Premium, and the upcoming YouTube Originals docuseries, Best Shape of My Life. On September 27, the first session will premiere and audiences will receive an inspiring and approachable workout with Will and his trainers. Throughout this journey, Will gets to show the world the steps he will be taking to improve his health. The series will provide a daily progression of his exercise routines, wellness balance, and other key health developments.


Becoming an ambassador of Fitbit demonstrates just how serious Will is about turning his lifestyle around. It takes courage to not only challenge yourself to be better but to create a program to help others is generous. The exclusive content created by Fitbit and Will aims to retool and rebuild one’s physical appearance by also strengthening their mental, too. You can’t improve one without the other and both parties recognized that. The Fitbit Premium program will include sessions for meditation, HIIT workouts, yoga and strength training. The content that has been created will dive deep into Will’s health journey and hopefully motivate others to do the same.
