U.S. employees spend an average of 50 hours a week at work and eat about one-third of their meals there as well. Work is a source of pride, defines our career and influences our lifestyles in a variety of manners. As an owner, HR director or wellness committee chair, you can positively impact the lifestyles of your employees, creating more productive and satisfied workers -- and Fleet Feet Sports Cleveland can help.
The 2008 CDC Health Insurance survey showed that 36% of all adults were considered totally inactive. 37% of all adults were at a healthy weight, 35% were overweight and 27% were obese with obesity percentages even higher in the Midwest and South. Obesity and high BMI have been directly linked to numerous diseases including cancer, heart disease, and diabetes which all result in higher healthcare costs to employer and employee.
How Fleet Feet Sports Can Help
Our mission is to promote active lifestyles in the Greater Cleveland community for walkers, runners, and fitness enthusiasts of all abilities. By professionally fitting your employees for athletic shoes, inserts, sports bras, or recommending comfortable clothing we aim to motivate continued fitness. After all, who wants to walk 30 minutes a day in blue jeans and shoes that hurt? We offer two primary ways to educate and motivate your employees to live healthier lifestyles: No Boundaries 5K Training and scheduling corporate seminars.
No Boundaries Beginners 5K
Fleet Feet Sports and New Balance have partnered to create a nationally recognized, award-winning beginner's 5K training program, and we can bring that program onsite at your location or work with you on a corporate rate for one of our programs. The goal is to get you off the couch and completing your first 5K in 10-12 weeks, complete with a detailed training schedule, two coached workouts per week, programs for walkers and runners, educational seminars and a great team of motivators. Running and walking for exercise is one of the best lifestyle choices you can make, burning upwards of 400 calories an hour.
Corporate Seminars & Health Fairs
We're happy to be part of your corporate wellness initiatives. We often speak during lunch-and-learns, health fairs and other wellness-focused events at companies, schools, teams, YMCAs, gyms and other facilities. We can tailor the topic to the audience, and we often speak on topics like:
