Corporate Wellness Programs in Norwalk

It is important for employers to know that when employees are healthy and live a more balanced lifestyle they will naturally prosper and thrive in the work place.

The goal of our Born Ready Fitness and Wellness Programs is to offer employers the opportunity to both encourage and help their employees live a happy, less stressful, healthier lifestyle, and empower them with ways to keep fit so they can perform better at their workplace and in their daily lives. When people feel better about themselves on either a mental or physical level, they often are able to make a positive change in their own personal and professional lives. Our Wellness Workshops, Health Programs, Group Exercise, and Stress Management Services have been developed to help create healthier, happier and loyal employees.

Many articles have been written about the success of Corporate Wellness Programs and report that these programs can reduce medical costs and the rate of absenteeism for participating companies. In fact, a 2010 Harvard Business Review article reported that one study found companies with wellness programs saved as much as $6 in health care for every $1 invested. That same dollar spent on wellness programs also reduced workers' compensation claims from $5 to $3.

This suggests that adoption of such programs could prove beneficial in terms of employee productivity as well as healthy employees.

While the numbers tell a compelling story, as with anything in life, the desire to change must come from within. Corporations cannot force their employees to participate in any sort of wellness programs but often times, when a few begin to participate and the results become obvious, human nature dictates that others will follow. The goal is to have as many employees participating as they become motivated as a group and there is a positive impact on their attitude and performance.

Stress Management

The Stress Management classes can be scheduled before, during or after the workday. Classes are usually a half hour in length. The class includes a guided relaxation with gentle stretching and breathing exercises to reduce stress and calm all of the systems. During the guided relaxation portion of the class, the group can either sit or lie down. The group is then led on a journey of complete relaxation and recovery.

We also can provide a Licensed Clinical Massage Therapist for Therapeutic Chair Massage. Massage is becoming a vital part of any holistic approach to health and well-being. Experts estimate that upwards of 90% of disease is stress related and perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether may be idealistic massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress. This translates to decreased anxiety, enhanced sleep quality, greater energy, improved concentration, increased circulation and reduced fatigue. Our massage therapists are typically at the workplace once to twice a week for one to two hours each day.

Fitness Program

Our Born Ready fitness Health Programs are available to organizations that are interested in committing to the long-term health and wellness of their employees. Born Ready Fitness will be at your facility at the times given by your company either for a few hours in the morning, noon or after work hours. The fitness program is dedicated to getting you in the best shape of your life. The first step will be to partake in the one-on-one Diagnostic. We recommend that all participants take advantage of the diagnostic to further your fitness goals and safety. All diagnostics will be giving in a one-on-one setting with our Fitness Professional. The next step will be for you and our Professional to discuss your specific goals, such as losing weight, gaining strength, or improving your general overall fitness level. Goals should be realistic and as specific as you can get them. We will then help you formulate your goals as well. Goals are important to have so we can help keep you motivated, and provide direction and purpose in your customized fitness program. Once the diagnostic is complete you will have free range to work out in the facility provided by your company. We will then continue to monitor your progress as the weeks and months proceed by making sure you are getting the results you are aiming for. Our goal is to provide the best possible fitness regimen that fits your physical and mental needs. We will be coaching and motivating you as you go through your workouts designed and implemented by your fitness pro. You will never be alone in this process.
