How do you encourage your workers to exercise

Discounts at the Gym

Partnering with a local gym or fitness center, particularly one close to your company, is an easy method to encourage staff to exercise. Simply contact prospective gyms by email, phone, or postal mail to inform the manager or owner that you’d want to suggest your employees to their facility in exchange for a membership price discount. You’ll not only help the gym you’ve partnered with grow its revenue, but you’ll also provide your staff an extra reason to start exercising regularly.

On-Site Medical Clinic

According to Top Fitness Magazine, having a health center with exercise equipment, healthy snacks and drinks, and workout incentive music is the best approach to encourage your employees to get active. It will take a great amount of time and effort. It will take a large amount of money and effort, but the potential rewards, such as enhanced employee loyalty, fewer sick days taken, and a discount on your company’s health insurance plan, may make this enterprise worthwhile.

Encourage the formation of exercise groups.

If your firm does not have the resources to build an onsite gym for its employees, you can instead encourage them to join workout groups. For example, you may organize a weekend business volleyball team that meets at a nearby park, or form a walking group that employees can join for a lunchtime stroll. These choices will cost you next to nothing, yet they will still encourage more of your staff to exercise and get some fresh air.

Flexibility of the iWorkspace

Allowing employees flexibility in their workspace is a simple method to encourage them to exercise. Allowing your human resources manager to sit on her balancing ball rather than in her desk chair, for example, would help her develop and stabilize her core muscles, which is essential for good health. Allowing your accountant to store and utilize resistance tubes in his cubicle, for example, will allow him to become stronger and more toned during his lunch hour. According to Forbes, numerous studies have found that exercising during working hours reduces stress and boosts productivity and creativity.

Putting Contests in Place

Friendly competitions can motivate your staff to exercise if they are conducted with subtlety and the prizes are appropriate.present a compelling reason for them to participate. Set a sensible contest deadline, such as 90 days or four months, and have employees write their starting weights on slips that you maintain in a secure location; there’s no need for them to announce their weights publicly. Have everyone re-weigh themselves at the end of the contest, turn in their results, and instead of announcing the winners’ new weights, reveal the total number of pounds they dropped.
