Tips on Starting a Corporate Wellness Initiative

The majority of us spend more hours  in the office than anywhere else. So how does one stay fit or keep motivated to stay fit?

Well more and more companies are implementing corporate wellness plans with a focus on bringing fitness into the workplace. Companies have realized that by creating a wellness environment they encourage good health among their employees which has proven to lead to more energetic and engaged employees. It can also increase morale of employees and overall provide a better workplace and work life balance.

Helpful starter tips on developing fit and healthy employees

1) Create friendly Competitions where anyone in the company can compete to see who logs the most workouts. Encouraging workouts is a great way to keep your employees healthy and fit. Sign your company up for a group or community on a site like mapmyfitness.com. Here you can create a company group, create profiles and track workout history.

2) Start snacking well in the Workplace. Help employees make smart food choices in the office by making healthy snacks available to them. Try to avoid displaying vending machines packed with junk food. Encourage employees to bring healthy snacks in to share or take budget from another area and splurge on a weekly health snack tray.

3) Provide employee assistance programs for private counseling or weight programs. A reason employees may not engage in fitness activities could be due to financial reasons.

4) If you have a gym plan set times for group training where employees can sign-up to participate in workouts together.

5) Organize simple seminars on personal training and diet planning.

6) Finally all employees really need is support, it doesn’t take much effort to organize employee recreational gatherings outside of work hours. This encourages employees both to work out and mingle outside of the office.

Implementing a new program like corporate wellness starts at the top with your leadership team. So get them on board and lead your team to a healthier lifestyle!

"Just received the 3.2 update - outstanding!"

I really like the 3D effect for the Mitts and Sparring. Curious as to what would be involved to have the new center strike pad that is new with the N3.

"The best workout I have ever had"

I downloaded the update yesterday, let me tell you it's the best workout I have ever had. It's fun - like working out with a trainer. And the sensors are so much better, I don't have any problem with them. Thank you!

We have regulars that use it here on a daily basis. It’s a great alternative to a cardio and strength workout plus, it’s not boring and keeps you motivated. We encourage all our members to give it a go!

"Having the Nexersys on campus has gone over great..."

The students have seen it on TV, on YouTube and in the magazines and are ready to make it a regular part of their fitness routine. We are super happy with our Nexersys and I expect we’ll have to get another one.

"Love coming in and using the Nexersys..."

My son, Jaxon, and I love coming into the Northeast Family YMCA and using the Nexersys. I teach group fitness classes at the YMCA so it is important to me that my son stays active and leads a healthy lifestyle.

"This machine is AWESOME..."

I have trained with some of the worlds best coaches. This machine is AWESOME. I get the best of both worlds. It increases your agility, power, and cardio. The cardio segment really works the hard to reach muscles and the abdominal routine is insane. I have yet to find a better machine or exercise to do high Intensity Interval Training on. This machine is everything it says it is and more.
