“We determined that for about every $1 that we invest behind Healthy Quest (Quest’s corporate wellness initiative), there’s a savings of about $4.80 (in healthcare insurance expense).” Read the full article at CNNHealth.com (September 2009).
Morning, lunchtime, or evening sessions are performed on-site, removing many obstacles to convenience.
Based on facility size and enrollments, any company can convert existing space into a functional health & fitness area at little to no cost.
Using body weight exercises, employees can benefit from certified instruction in the areas of strength training, Pilates, and yoga.
A corporate wellness program further aligns to organizational “green” initiatives. It eliminates the commuting costs and emissions associated with off-site gyms. It removes the need for further infrastructure and conversion of open space.
However, the #1 benefit is intangible. According to clients, having a corporate wellness program builds stronger employer/employee relationships. Barriers existing between departments can be overcome and new cross-functional networks created for a truly ‘healthier’ organization.
Small Group Fitness
Wherever you have a team of people in your community, small group fitness can be a great option. Working directly with a personal trainer, enjoy customized attention while spending less money.
Strength training to core exercises can be offered as weekly sessions or in boot camp style. Train With Rich has designed programs for youth sports teams, houses of worship, and volunteer organizations. One exemplary group fitness program was designed as a giveback to those who selflessly serve us all - - - the firefighter.
“Heart disease is the #1 killer of firefighters.”

According to a WebMD article,
“45% of all on-duty firefighter deaths come from heart attack, not fire or building collapse.”
Train With Rich believes “the ultimate give back to selfless volunteers is personal wellness; the better they (a firefighter) take care of themselves, the more service they can be to others.”
Firefighter training can take place with or without gym access. Various strength and endurance workouts found in our other group fitness programs are combined with traditional firefighter “tools of trade”. Truck ladders and hoses are as effective as kettle bells and resistance bands when readying a firefighter for rescue service.
Our clients have reported on-the-job performance improvements. Firefighters’ fitness often simulates rescue drills in a lower stress environment allowing for quality enhancements that result in better emergency outcomes.
