About Us

We offer wellness interventions to corporates through employee assistance programs.

Velocity is defined as speed and direction of a body in motion. A human body is constantly in motion if we are alive. This is not the issue. The issue is what direction the body is moving towards and the speed at which it is moving. Each person determines these two by the lifestyle choices that they make. At Velocity we incentivize individuals to take a more active role in managing their wellness, developing healthy long-term habits that are good for them, good for us and good for society.

We are a B-BBEE Level 1 Contributor majority owned by a black female entrepreneur.
