Fitness Classes – Physical activity can dissolve stress, boost mood and energy, plus improve sleep quality!
Our classes are all-inclusive, no matter what fitness level or ability your attendees possess. We tailor the classes to make sure staff feel refreshed rather than exhausted! During the summer months this is also an opportunity to get some fresh air and movement before or after a day in the office. Get outside, get moving, energised and fitter with one of our coaches by your side to help you improve your fitness and motivation!
Whether through core-strength classes (exercises whilst sitting on gym balls), Yoga, Pilates, Zumba or Insanity (a form of High Impact Interval Training), improving fitness levels can be fun, motivating and entertaining.
Have an on-site gym? We can tailor a programme to increase uptake and footfall.
Health Checks - We can provide drop-in "Fit-Tests" delivered by a personal trainer to give staff an idea of their fitness and how to make small changes to improve their physical performance.
A health specialist can also be provided to perform individual "Health MOTs" where percentage fat, muscle mass, body mass index (BMI), resting heart rate, cholesterol, aerobic fitness, blood pressure and sugar levels are tested. During the Health MOT, staff will also have the opportunity to discuss hydration, alcohol intake, sleep quality and any existing injuries. The MOT can be used to define fitness and lifestyle goals for the future.
Health Fact Sheets - If classes aren’t an option, we can offer education to make sure that your staff have every opportunity to include small changes in their wider lives, which taken together will give positive results.
By providing regular bursts of bite-sized information direct to their inboxes, we can keep fitness at the forefront of their minds. We can design mini (15-minutes or less) home-based exercise routines, plus tips & tricks to weave exercise into day to day life – these can be signposted through emails and hosted on your intranet or via our own website.
Running Expo - We have running experts available for you to drop in and talk to about anything and everything running related. They can offer you expert advice and help you choose the gear that's right for you. Areas covered include –
- Gait analysis
- Nutrition advice
- Training advice
- Footwear samples to try
- Sports bra fitting and advice
- Wearable tech to try out
- Free training guides for everyone, no matter what level of fitness or experience you are at currently
- Information on stretching, core stability and running during pregnancy guides
Nutrition Workshops - We have experienced nutritionists who can provide anything from a one-hour workshop discussing healthy eating, nutrition and labelling etc. to informal drop-in sessions for tailored dietary advice, to full-blown healthy cookery demos. If desired, we can even include your colleagues' families in the education to make the impact as wide-reaching as possible. We can also bring along our smoothie-bike to create a buzz in your workspace!
We can make our knowledge accessible to all through email bulletins on healthy eating (to support fitness, to lose inches/weight, to increase energy levels, "meat free Monday" recipes etc.) and dedicated email, phone or forum support within your intranet (if applicable).
Healthy Eating Cookery Demonstration – There's no better way to encourage cooking low sugar, fat and salt recipes and motivate change than seeing it in action… especially after tasting the delicious results! We will demonstrate a quick and easy recipe featuring wholesome and affordable ingredients. Your colleagues will leave with the recipe card and confidence to continue healthy cooking at home. The portion size will be enough for a light lunch for everyone!
What’s on the menu? (example)
- Spicy mixed bean lentil chilli
- Grated cheese
- Tortilla wrap
- Mexican salad
- Recipe card
Smoothie Bike Package - Create a buzz in your workspace with our awesome smoothie bikes! This is not only a fantastic way to make great tasting nourishing smoothies, but an innovative device that really gets your colleagues interacting whilst learning about healthy eating and being active. Our stationary bike is fitted with a blender that spins as you pedal, creating healthy fruit smoothies in minutes!
Healthy Eating Workshops - Our workshops offer a variety of empowering and engaging nutritional topics. These workshops can be tailored to focus on a specific theme, stand alone or form a continuous weekly or monthly programme.
A good starter workshop would be our 'Food for thought' workshop which highlights the principles of healthy eating. It entails discussing the food groups (Eatwell plate) and relating it to our busy lives, Q&A, visual aids and an engaging activity utilising food models. The content of the workshop includes a takeaway literature specific to your focus (booklets, fact sheets, leaflets, recipe cards etc.) for each person.
On completion of workshop your staff will be able to:
- Utilise practical skills to incorporate healthy eating into their busy lives
- Be confident in making informed and sustainable healthy lifestyle choices
- Dispel common myths around nutrition and healthy eating
Nutritional Fact Sheets – We can provide informative and useful guides to keep your staff educated about any aspect of nutrition. We are happy to tailor any guide specifically to the lifestyle of your staff to make them as relevant and effective as possible.
