Atlanta, Ga. (March 1, 2016) – Fitness Interactive Experience (FIX) and Strategic Health Services (SHS) announce a partnership to bring story-based fitness challenges and day-to-day exercise experiences to SHS wellness members throughout the U.S.

Health systems connect with local employers to deliver wellness and develop healthier communities, as well as drive new patients back to their hospital networks.
