Medical physicians may understand your body, but they are not trained to instruct how to exercise and obtain a proper nutritional behavior. There are Many employed sedentary individuals who are unaware of the repercussions that can occur from a lack of exercise. The most common time of realization normally dawns on individuals between ages 23 and 30 years of age who receive office positions right out of graduating college. One example is deep vein thrombosis, which can lead to many vascular issues due to an outrageous amount of continuous sitting. A 2010 Harvard Business Review article had claimed that wellness programs could return as much as six times their cost to the companies that take part in sponsoring them. A second 2010 review by a separate team of Harvard researchers examining the same concept concluded “medical costs fall by about $3.27 for every dollar spent on wellness programs and that sick day costs fall by about $2.73 for every dollar spent.” We are confident in servicing virtually every sector, including employers in government and community safety, health care, education, business sales and non-profit organizations.
