Corporate Group Training
Corporate America has begun to realize just how much of an impact the health and wellness of their employees has on the overall costs of running a business. The right fitness and wellness programs can positively impact employees and their productivity level in the workplace and also at home. Recent studies have shown that promoting proper body mechanics for injury prevention, engaging in healthy habits with nutrition and education, and initiating stress management skills are the keys to increased productivity and decreased absenteeism in today’s corporate employees.
Employees often experience one or more of the following health issues relating directly to repetitive movement caused by their job responsibilities and poor body mechanics: chronic back pain, sharp or chronic neck pain, loss of range of motion and pain in the shoulders and wrists, fatigue, struggles with weight management, and anxiety/depression.
Top programs to think about implementing in your company, which offer ways to combat anxiety and depression, increase strength, and promote healthy nutrition:
- Modified Yoga and Pilates teach flexibility and proper body mechanics
- Resistance training classes and programs increase strength in weakened muscles, joints, and ligaments
- Light cardiovascular fitness programs combat hypertension and anxiety
- Group Fitness classes give employees the opportunity to get together in community, learn about healthy tips, share advice, and support each other
