Many of us have signed up to meet with this same personal trainer on weekends too which is nice
My workday essentially consists of resting at a desk, looking at a screen and typing on a keypad for the course of the day. I talk on the phone for periods of time as well. It requires no physical exertion whatsoever. However, by the end of a long workday, my body completely aches. I end up with a sore neck and back, aching joints and extremely painful feet. Because of the length of the whole workday, it’s strenuous to find time to fit in any genre of physical fitness to help me out. I get up in the early morning hours and get back from my job at about 5 in the evening hours. By that point, I simply want to eat some supper and relax and watch cable or get into a book. After working at the same job for quite a few years, I noticed that I’d put on a few extra pounds and was becoming way less productive. Sitting at my desk for such a long while caused me drastic pain. As I complained to coworkers, I discovered that all of us were basically having the same problems. I did some research online and came across a corporate wellness program. I then took the information to the office supervisor who agreed that it was a marvelous idea. The people I was with and I put out sign up sheets and the interest level was quite overwhelming. I got in touch with a personal trainer who specializes in fitness programs in the workplace, and she was very helpful. The people I was with and I now offer sessions before work, during lunch and at the end of the afternoon. The classes are pretty much always full, and there’s a pretty huge waiting list. Many of us have signed up to meet with this same personal trainer on weekends too which is nice. She not only sets sufficient goals and keeps us extremely motivated, however she’s taught us so much about the usual way to workout and nutrition plans. Since incorporating the wellness program, we’ve also added a company bowling and beach volleyball team.
