If I Owned a Major Company this Would Be Item #1 on the Agenda

As the owner of both train2move.com and Trinity Sports Camps, encouraging employees to exercise is not a difficult task. Everyone here is very passionate about keeping their bodies healthy and fit so it goes without saying that everyone will workout most, if not all days of the week. However, if I owned my business that involved either office workers, factory workers, or even delivery people, i would make exercise a mandatory part of the day.

Loren sent me an article about a local company here in Oregon that has taken that step. Here is the article from oregonlive.com. I am always amazed that this is not more of a priority for companies. I know many of them offer the chance to do some exercise by supplying gym memberships or offering to pay for trainers even. Why however if you know it is going to accomplish things like, increased work performance, less sick days, less workmans comp from injuries, and a host of other great benefits do companies not make this mandatory?

I understand if perhaps a union is involved that does not allow for it but if you are a business owner would it not be worth the first twenty minutes of the day? After all it is not like your punishing people, just help them achieve better health. I have  seen plenty of studies that discuss the many obvious benefits to your company if you keep your body healthy.

The exercises do not need to be overly intense but rather moves that will help to improve your employees overall posture. This alone can make a significant dent in the amount of nuisance injuries like carpal tunnel and even many types of back pain.

Here is an example that would work well for you to try:

If you have never checked out the store we have a few different options to accomplish this type of goal for your employees. First is the AM/PM program. This is a series of routines that will enable anyone to help get their body into better alignment as well as increases in flexibility and strength.

Also a great option for employees is the Cubicle workout program. The people who have used this program love how easy it is and the tremendous benefit they feel. Check them out if you are looking for ways to improve your personal or companies overall physical health.
