Fitness and Food. Your Expert source for Corporate Wellness.
At Fitness and Food, we believe that health promotion is an investment in human capital.
In optimal physical and psychological health, employees perform up to 40% better than those with health risks.
We deliver worksite wellness programmes that improve morale, increase recruitment and retention and dramatically lower health care costs for concrete bottom line results.
We work with progressive individuls and companies to get ahead of rising health care costs and help reduce health risks – all by changing employee behaviours with respect to their fitness and nutrition choices.
Employees spend more than half of their waking hours at work – so it makes sense that the work place is the right place to make a positive impact on employee health and wellness….Research has proven that simple changes – by moving more and understanding nutrition – can have a significant impact on the health and productivity of today’s workforce.
Companies can’t afford..to address their employees’ cognitive capacities while ignoring their physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. When they feel strong and resilient, they perform better, with more passion, for longer.The Making of a Corporate Athlete, Loehr & Schwartz
