Corporate Fitness Programs

As companies focus more on employee wellness as a business strategy, getting employee buy in makes it more likely you’ll achieve your strategic objectives.

We ensure that individuals choose to do their normal, daily activities in ways that make them healthier, happier, and more productive. You’ll find that employees increasingly take ownership of their fitness, wellness, and well-being.

Take sitting, for example. The hidden truth is that sitting is a form of exercise. Over time the body molds itself to the way we hold it, so how we sit and how we work matters a lot to our health.

There are two ways to sit. Each produces completely different outcomes.

1. Sit Passively. Let gravity mold the body to the surface it’s sitting on and allow dysfunctional motor behaviors to take over. For example, sitting at a computer: the body tends to hunch over the keyboard and strains to see the computer screen. Passive sitting leads to a progressive cascade of health problems that we like to call office body. When one’s discomfort or pain reaches a tipping point, they mask the problem with soothing remedies and ergonomic aids; while productivity sags and health costs increase.

2. Sit Actively. Use the body’s natural power to sit upright against gravity; thereby activating it’s various systems throughout the day. When you use your body correctly you keep the metabolic system on, while developing healthy core strength and improving body mechanics.

Three things we do to help people make the switch from passive to active sitting are:

1. Identify the habits that get in the way.

2. Transition the person into healthy positions so the difference can be felt.

3. Teach the skills they’ll use to maintain correct body mechanics.

Our coaching practice focuses on what an individual can do today that they previously couldn’t or wouldn’t do. We empower them to own their success.

The Gym is Inside the Body

When we bring movement and exercise into your company the physical footprint is small. That’s because we use few exercise aids, like dumbbells, medicine balls, elastic bands and kettleballs. The bulk of our work is done with bodyweight, emphasizing control, balance and accuracy. We utilize a person’s internal biologic systems as much as possible because the gym is inside the body.

We show how real fitness can be integrated into a person’s routine without turning their lifestyle upside down.
