We promote and manage fitness in the workplace for improved health and wellbeing.
Our services include :
- Physical fitness needs assessment
- Workplace gym set-up, management and maintenance
- Personal and group fitness sessions in the office/work environment.
When you combine all that work time with our culture’s increasing dependence on electronics for entertainment, you can easily see why many South Africans are overweight and out of shape. In fact, South Africa does top the rankings when it comes to the percentage of adults in the country who are considered obese.
Benefits of establishing a fitness culture in your company.
Fitness Lowers Healthcare Costs
It’s a fact: healthy employees cost less than unhealthy employees. Healthcare industry experts estimate that between 70 to 90 percent of healthcare spending is caused by problems associated with unhealthy lifestyle choices that can lead to chronic diseases. These lifestyle choices — whether they are improper nutrition, too little exercise or smoking – cost businesses billions in lost productivity each year.
It makes sense that healthier workers miss fewer days of work.
Fitness Creates Less Stress
Workplace wellness programs educate employees on how to feel better on the job, both mentally and physically
Our workplace fitness programs offer exercises to reduce stress and muscle strain when you are on the job
Exercise has the ability to both exhilarate and to relax and can serve to counter depression and to dissipate stress. Clinical results also have shown that workers sleep better after exercise and are able to lower both their cholesterol and blood pressure levels by following a regular exercise plan.
Fitness Encourages Better Work Performance
Research is showing that companies who have a corporate fitness program retain their employees longer than other companies. A study conducted by the National Business Group on Health and the Towers Watson organization shows that firms with wellness programs report lower voluntary attrition than do those without them.
Fitness Fosters Teamwork
Camaraderie is harder to measure, but it is also an important a benefit of a workplace fitness program. A greater sense of workplace teamwork is a natural outgrowth of participating in an employee fitness program. Employees who exercise together get to know each other better, and those enhanced relationships translate into all kinds of pluses.
Social support is a big component to any exercise or weight loss program, and when your colleagues are in the program with you, you can boost each other’s efforts and help hold each other accountable. Workers get to interact with each other in a setting apart from the stress of work and have conversations they may not have had otherwise in the work environment.
These relationships help build a company culture of cooperation that can pay off in increased loyalty and in the overall good will that employees feel toward their employer.
