Why your boss should pay for your workout

Testimonials

“Last summer, a few of my employees convinced me to meet with Kat to hear about creating a corporate FFC account. I was dubious at best but figured I had nothing to lose. Kat assured me she would make the plan turnkey for me and she totally overdelivered. She makes it so easy to manage and administer the plan. This is easily the most hassle free benefit I can offer to my employees. Not only are we getting healthy, but my employees are more focused and energized. And to add to it, I joined myself and couldn’t be more thrilled. I am thinner than I have been in over 10 years and have more energy. Even my boss notices my better mood when I work out during the day. I notice how much more focused I am throughout the day when I work out at lunch. No more 3pm slump!”

Look forward to:

Positive Return on Investment:

A comprehensive study of 20 companies’ employer-sponsored wellness strategies, based on peer-reviewed articles published between 2005 and 2011, found that most companies reported between $1.60 and $3.90 saved versus spent on wellness programming.

Reduced Absenteeism:

A 2010 Harvard study published in Health Affairs stated that wellness programs cut absenteeism costs by $2.73 per dollar spent. Con-way Freight reported 75% fewer lost work days by one year following the initiation of its wellness program.

Reduced Chronic Illness and Hospitalization:

A study of BJC Healthcare, published in the March 2013 journal Health Affairs, found a 41% decrease in hospitalization for conditions targeted by its wellness program. The Harvard Nurses’ Health Study unveiled that as many as 9 out of 10 cases of Type 2 diabetes can be prevented with a healthier lifestyle, including exercise, proper nutrition and healthy body weight.

Healthier Employees:

Results of the 2013 Workplace Wellness Programs Study sponsored by the U.S. Departments of Labor and Health and Human Services showed that participants of wellness programs that include weight management saw an average reduction of BMI of about .15 in the first year, with persistent effects for two following years. According to a 2010 editorial published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, as little as four hours of sitting can send the body into a harmful sedentary state, shutting down genes that regulate glucose and fat. The more excuses people have to be active throughout the day, the better.

Happier Employees:

“Exercise is the single best thing you can do for your brain in terms of mood, memory, and learning,” says Harvard Medical School psychiatrist John Ratey, author of the book, Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain. “Even 10 minutes of activity changes your brain.”
