Fit for Business
Fitness Assessment and Fitness Training
Of all our services, the subject of Fitness Training at work, is probably the most the most debated; "work is for work", "no time for fitness when I'm working", "It's up to each person to keep fit in their own time", "why should the company pay to get someone fit".
You may have heard those arguments before and we will look at that in more detail. But first, to summarise the whole answer:
"A Happy Healthy Workforce = A Healthy and Profitable Business"
We have a results based approach for fitness training. This means that we monitor progress to see if the desired outcome is being achieved, or what may need to be changed.
We usually start a fitness programme with a measure of body composition "baseline checks" for each person. This provides accurate ‘measured’ data, identifying any areas for concern whereby increased exercise and/or changes in lifestyle may be required.
It is a completely non-invasive procedure... we simply require you to stand on a set of biometric scales in bare feet. The results provide us with a snapshot of your current physical health and fitness levels – measurements used for future comparison to keep track of and monitor individual progress.
The data that we collate comprises of the following measurements:
Height & Weight
Body Fat Percentage
Muscle Mass & Quality
Body Mass Index (BMI)
Daily Calorie Intake (DCI)
Baseline Checks are usually repeated each month with individual clients, by one of our qualified Personal Trainers, so that we can "test and measure" the effectiveness of training for each person.
On other occasions, the baseline checks form the first part of our more comprehensive Health Checks that also include checks of blood sugars and lipids, with our experienced Health Technicians. With more information, each client can make a more informed choice when it comes to goal setting. For example, is the priority to lose weight, get leaner and stronger, to become more flexible, or to improve endurance?
Having identified any areas that need addessing, from the initial health checks, our team of Personal Trainers will deliver on-site fitness training for small groups or 1-2-1 as relevant to the needs of each person. Progress is measured at regular intervals to ensure effectiveness.
In our experience the benefits are clear. There can be no denying that there is a direct correlation between mental health and physical fitness, as statistics and surveys show. Our objective is to produce happy healthy employees, resilient to the mental and physical stressors of the workplace. Hours lost to sickness is reduced and the employees present as focused and proactive, with a positive affect on the whole business.
Training can be a simple as a walking group at lunchtime; a session in an on-site gym (we will even supply the equipment); exercise classes before, during or after work; a runners’ or cycling club; or even training for a charity or corporate challenge.

The results of the Body Composition Baseline Check may indicate an individuals need to make changes to eating habits and introduce regular exercise.
We provide nutritional advice and support, as well as fun fitness training sessions for individuals or teams as part of your working practices.
We want exercise to be fun and rewarding and the more we know about the individual person, the better we can find the right form of exercise and the Personal Trainer most likely to get the best results for them.
Our team of well qualified and experienced trainers will continue to work with each person/team for as long, or as short a time as needed, to achieve a happier and healthier outcome. Fighting fit, alert, responsive and most important of all; at their post.
Repeating Baseline Checks at intermittent intervals, provides us and you, with ‘milestone’ evidence of any health improvements, or lack of therein, so that we can either build on your success, or make the necessary changes to achieve a positive outcome.

Taking the word ‘resilience’ and applying it to a business context, we have three clear definitions:
1. A person who is ‘resilient’ is better equipped to become healthy, happy, or strong again after an illness, disappointment, or other problem.
2. A business that is ‘resilient’ has the ability to recover quickly from setback.
3. A company that is ‘resilient’ has the ability to identify, assess, and respond to a potentially disruptive situation, in order to prevent it from becoming a crisis.
