Wellness on the Go
We bring our wellness programming to you (virtually)!
Please click on the link below to request the Wellness on the Go services listed below. All requests must be submitted at least 4 weeks prior to event.
Do you think your employees need an active afternoon ‘pick
me up’ or warm up exercises before starting their shifts, but don’t know what
to do? A fitness professional can provide workshops on several fitness topics
including: exercises at your desk, reducing lower back pain, improving core
strength, strength training at home, and so on. Presentation style with
exercise demos and handouts can be provided. Please indicate on the form what
topics are most relevant to your work population.
Lunch & Learn
A Registered Dietitian can come to your location to educate
your staff on a nutritional topic relevant to your work culture and/or needs.
Help us learn more about what your workers in the Wellness on the Go form and
share as much as possible with what kind of nutritional topic you may be
interested in. Healthy food/snacks and recipes can be provided.
Most health issues today are directly or indirectly
impacting everyone; from family to friends, we’ve all been touched by some sort
of disease. A Registered Dietitian or our Nurse Liaison (Cathy Saunders) can educate your staff about the following
topics: cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and more. Please indicate on
the form what diseases are most relevant to your work force.
