Discovery Members

What is Vitality and how does it work?

Vitality is a scientifically formulated wellness program offered by Discovery. It aims to assist you in living a healthier lifestyle by incentivising you with a range of lifestyle rewards. By engaging in certain health-related activities and assessments you are awarded points. As you earn a certain number of points, you are awarded a higher Vitality “status”. The higher your status, the higher the level of rewards you are offered by Discovery.
