Corporate Wellness

A corporate wellness program can save your business a lot of money, in health insurance costs and in increased productivity.

The CDC predicts that 86% of Americans will be obese or overweight by 2030, and 1/3 of healthcare costs will be due to this weight gain. These individuals will experience chronic health conditions and miss an estimated 450 million days of work a year, amounting to $153 billion in lost productivity per year.

This doesn’t even take into consideration the overweight and obese individuals who come to work but are far less productive due to their chronic health conditions.

A corporate fitness program is so much more than just a nice perk, it is a worthy investment in the future of your company.
