Welcome to What’s in My Wellness Bag: Our series in which we ask cool people to metaphorically unpack their wellness bag—or what we think of as someone’s whole wellness routine. Their gym stuff, their nutrition stuff, their sleep stuff, their self-care stuff. It’s a little bit like Mary Poppins’ carpet bag. But instead of a coat rack, we found Beyond Yoga leggings, Thorlo socks, and, naturally, a Glowbar membership.

Meet Rachel

“I’m Rachel Liverman, founder and CEO of Glowbar—a new skincare concept disrupting the spa industry with no-frills, 30-minute, customized, and solution-oriented treatments. As a third-generation licensed esthetician, I struggled to find an effective, accessible, and trustworthy source for consistent facial treatments administered by expertly trained estheticians. Glowbar’s purpose is to reinvent professional skincare by developing approachable facial treatments and an aesthetically designed algorithm that eliminates consumer anxiety, overwhelming treatment menus, and the need for expensive add-ons.”

Fitbit Luxe

How do you use it? Why is it wellness?

“I haven’t taken my Fitbit off in over five years. It keeps me accountable for achieving my daily movement and heart rate goals and motivates me to stand up from my desk and go get some fresh air throughout the day. Our physical and mental health are deeply connected and my Fitbit helps me stay on track and be the best version of myself.”

How’d you get it?

“I bought mine online and continue to upgrade every few years. Health is wealth and I believe in investing in it!”

Beyond Yoga

How do you use them? Why are they wellness?

“These are my go-to leggings to wear for Pilates and walking. The material is so soft it feels like you’re putting on a warm hug. I truly believe your activewear has the power to influence your mood, your motivation, and your performance. If you are feeling good in your activewear, you are going to have a better workout. And these leggings in particular fit like a glove, keeping me feeling comfortable and confident!” 

How’d you get them?

“A friend gave me an old pair of hers a long time ago and it got me hooked! I knew I had to buy multiple pairs of my own.”

Pilates People Class Pack

Pilates People

How do you use it? Why is it wellness?

“I got into Pilates eight months ago and haven’t looked back. I wish I found it earlier in life—I describe it as a workout that’s great for your nervous system. It keeps me calm and focused, and away from my phone for a full hour! I also love supporting small studios like Pilates People that are female owned (and just the best)!” 

How’d you get it?

“I believe in investing in my health and wellness, so I treated myself to one of their class packages. I wanted a consistent workout that I truly enjoy and have seen amazing results so far.”

How do you use this? Why is it wellness?

Carolyn is my secret weapon to keep me as healthy as possible. I consult with her throughout the year on my bloodwork and supplements to continue to provide my body with the support it needs. She provides me with expert advice I can trust on supplements, lifestyle changes, diet changes, and moving my body in new and different ways. When it comes to my health, I don’t play around, and Caroline’s help has me feeling better than ever!”

How’d you get this?

“Caroline and I met in college. I knew she would do great things from the beginning. When I was looking for some expert advice on how to become the best and healthiest version of myself, I didn’t hesitate to reach out.”

Pure Encapsulations Magnesium Citrate

Pure Encapsulations

How do you use it? Why is it wellness?

“I swear by magnesium for keeping me feeling my best and sleeping well! This supplement supports metabolism to break down carbs, amino acids, fats, and other essential nutrients. In the process, it improves my mood, heart health, and gives me the energy I need to take on the day. I think magnesium is one of the best supplements and so underrated! 

How’d you get it?

“My nutritionist recommended I start taking these magnesium supplements. I never looked back.”

New Balance 860s

New Balance

How do you use these? Why are they wellness?

“I am an avid walker. I walk the Westside Highway almost every morning and consider it my version of meditation. I have tried every sneaker out there and I am now loyal to the New Balance 860. They take good care of my feet while I walk and walk and walk (hence the Fitbit)!”

How’d you get them?

“The amazing New Balance team gifted these to me! I could not be more grateful as they are truly the best sneakers I’ve ever put on my feet.”

How do you use these? Why is it wellness?

How’d you get them?

“I ordered them online after doing my research. Now they’re the only socks I will buy!”

“I created Glowbar to make taking care of your skin—and feeling confident in your skin—easy. Glowbar is easy on your wallet and on your schedule with its 30-minute, $65 expert facials. It’s my favorite way to maintain clear, glowing skin, and the only appointment I do monthly for myself. 

How’d you get it?

I created it 🙂

“This card is such an exciting addition to my wallet and it’s perfect for someone who values health and wellness but hasn’t found a credit card that rewards me for that. I love getting rewarded for wellness practices like sleeping, meditating, and moving my body—plus extra points on purchases at my favorite places like Whole Foods, ClassPass and sweetgreen. The app is easy to use and the card is designed for your definition of health and wellness, which I love. It’s flexible!”

Kira's Favorite Healthy Merchants

“It’s no secret that wellness is such an important part of my everyday life. I spend a lot of money to help fuel my love of running, recovery, nutrition and mindfulness, so the fact that I can now earn rewards for every dollar I spend with the Ness Card is amazing. My health always comes first, and the Ness Card makes that easy to do. It’s a win-win for everyone!”

Andi's Favorite Healthy Merchants

“As a new mum, wellness and self-care is a priority for me—so I can, in turn, be able to take care of my baby. I love the incentives that Ness offers for making healthier choices. And to be rewarded along the way for those purchases is such a plus!

Oh, and getting 5x point rewards on my Erewhon $20+ smoothie makes it a little more justifiable.”

Amrit's Favorite Healthy Merchants

“I made a promise to myself to find my joy again in 2023. For the past few years, I haven’t been taking care of myself mentally and physically because I’ve just been on the go and focusing on the future instead of being present. I realized that part of the reason I wasn’t happy was because I wasn’t taking care of myself. So, now with the Ness Card—which literally rewards you for staying on top of your wellness journey—I’ve easily been able to focus on my mental and physical journey. Using the card is now a part of my weekly routine, whether I’m buying groceries, going to therapy, spending a day at the spa, or treating myself to a delicious yummy meal.”

Candace's Favorite Healthy Merchants

“I love life with the Ness Card! The team behind the scenes work really hard to make it valuable and to create a sense of community, which you feel in every newsletter and hand-crafted partnership. The card itself encourages me to be even more curious about where I’m spending my money. It definitely incentivizes me to spend ‘healthier’, which is really unique. On top of that, getting points for taking more steps? There is seriously nothing like it.

David's Favorite Healthy Merchants

“My favorite thing about the Ness Card is that it rewards you for your healthy habits, and not all of them require spending. Yes, you can earn 5x points when you spend at any of their approved health and wellness merchants (think Erewhon and many of your other favorites) but you also earn points for being active daily! So now your sanity walks are literally paying off :) As someone who not only works in wellness but lives and breathes it, essentially most of my expenses live in that realm and with the Ness Card I can now be rewarded nicely for those purchases.”

Kirsty's Favorite Healthy Merchants

“I love that I have rewards to look forward to when I focus on my health and wellness. As a mom of two and full time photographer/creator, it’s hard to find time to prioritize my health and—as my body ages—I want to make sure that I’m treating it to all the TLC it needs (and deserves)! The Ness Card reminds me to take care of my mental, physical, and emotional health on the daily.”

Valerie's Favorite Healthy Merchants

“It’s refreshing to have a card app that is so easy to use. I can track my spending and rewards at the click of a button. I love getting a notification when I get extra points for getting a full night sleep or getting my steps in, though of course those are optional. I work a lot, and I feel like I get extra rewarded for taking the time to take care of myself – whether it’s therapy or simply cooking at home instead of dining out. The points accumulate really quickly, and I’ve already gotten a $1,000 credit at Erewhon in my first four months. I also go visit family in Europe a lot, and no one takes my card there, so it’s so convenient to be able to use my Ness Card without ever paying a fee.”

Mélanie's Favorite Healthy Merchants

“As someone who spends the majority of her money on wellness, the Ness Card is perfect for me! I love earning 5x points on purchases at healthy businesses that I was already making, anyways. The Ness Card also motivates me to get enough sleep, practice mindfulness and other healthy habits. The app is really user-friendly and I love watching my points add up. I am excited to redeem them for wellness-related items!”

Lauren's Favorite Healthy Merchants

“The Ness Card motivates me to keep up my healthy habits, and has helped me discover new brands and products that are in alignment with my goals. I’m not spending any more with my Ness Card, but the money I am spending on health and wellness is actually earning me rewards, benefits, and even cash back. And because Ness’s definition of a ‘healthy merchant’ is so generous, I’m able to recognize all of the small ways I practice self-care throughout the week. From buying fresh veggies to going to therapy to taking my supplements, the Ness Card is there to cheer me on: ‘Keep being healthy, girl. You deserve 5x points for that.'”

Melissa's Favorite Healthy Merchants

“The Ness Card rewards me when I spend money on health and wellness. Especially because so much of my wellness routine is spent being active, gardening, making food with my husband, getting a massage, or having some me time, it is nice to be rewarded for that with points that are with brands I shop at all the time anyway. It allows my wellness choices to work harder which I love.”
