As the winner of the 2017 Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Healthiest Employer Award, Catalyst Fitness knows the value and importance of Corporate Wellness. People breathe life and value into your company. Within the modern workplace there are increasing instances of stress, anxiety, obesity, depression, and heart disease. The modern workplace has become increasingly exercise-free. Technological advances have lessened the need to “walk” at work. Moving a mouse has the same level of physical exertion as pressing the buttons on a remote control. Emails, the fax, and the internet have meant that it is possible to run a business without having to leave the chair. The “advances” affect physical and mental health in a disastrous manner ultimately affecting your company’s profit. A sedentary lifestyle is a recipe for disaster – heart disease, chronic back pain, repetitive stress disorder, and low employee self-esteem are symptomatic of a work environment in which the only exercise available is surfing the net. Company morale will invariably suffer if an exercise policy is not endorsed and put in place.
Regular exercise can significantly improve workplace health. Instances of absenteeism and staff turnover, low staff morale and reduced productivity can be alleviated with a corporate wellness program that energizes and motivates tired employees. Boredom, repetitive motion injuries and workplace fatigue can only be combated with physical and mental stimulation.
Studies show, employees who are physically active on a regular basis record less sick days each year and are more energetic, dynamic, and industrious. Investing in the health of your staff pays dividends through increased productivity and goodwill. For example, Coca Cola reported saving $500 per employee every year after implementing a fitness program with only 60% of their employees participating. Pacific Bell reported that overall absenteeism decreased after implementing a wellness program.
Coors Brewing Company reported that for each dollar spent on their corporate wellness program they saw a $5.50 return and the employees who participated reduced their absentee rate by 18% Prudential Insurance Company reported that the benefits costs for employees participating in their program were $312 as opposed to $574 for non-participants (American Association of Occupational Health Nurses, 2004).
Catalyst Fitness is committed to creating a healthy, active Atlanta workforce, providing area employers with training incentives for employees at their state-of-the-art facility. Catalyst Fitness also provides training services and facility design at your office location.
We incorporate all aspects of fitness training (cardiovascular, strength, flexibility, core), perform comprehensive fitness assessments, design personalized fitness programs, and dynamic group training programs. We take pride in our talented, professional employees who provide innovative and effective corporate wellness solutions for diverse workforces. Catalyst Fitness’ staff reaches beyond the walls of the fitness center to motivate, educate, and encourage employees to embrace and maintain healthy, active lifestyles. Applying practical experience Catalyst Fitness delivers dynamic cost-effective corporate fitness programs that help employees work happier, harder, and healthier.
To motivate your employees to exercise, eat better, and lose weight, you could invest heavily in facilities, equipment, and staffing to develop on-site wellness programs for employees, in hopes of creating a healthier, more productive workforce. However, the problem with corporate fitness facilities is that employees spend one quarter of their lives at work and typically are not motivated enough to come in early or stay late to do an exercise program.
Catalyst Fitness provides attractive discounts for businesses to train at our professionally coordinated facility. When your company becomes a member of our Corporate Wellness Program, your employees are eligible for savings off of our regular training rates. No matter what size of company you keep, there is a plan to keep it healthy, happy, and working strong.
