CORPORATE EVENTS AND TEAMBUILDING PROGRAM
Jumping rope is one of the few exercises that works every part of your body. Did you know that jumping rope for 10 minutes is equivalent to running an 8 minute mile? Jumping rope burns more calories per minute than most exercises. Your upper body gets a workout from swinging the rope, your heart gets the benefit of reaching its target rate, your stomach muscles engage during the jumps and you’ll be able to tone your legs as well. It also helps develop speed, agility, balance, coordination, bone density and aerobic conditioning while toning and trimming areas of the body that store fat. Can you believe an exercise that’s this effective can be so fun? Yes, JumpStarz LLC is all about making fitness fun! Participants are so engaged in the program, they don’t even realize how many calories they have burned. Whether it’s a first time jumper or an experienced jumper, we guarantee you will enjoy a JumpStarz class.
Chronic diseases such as depression and hypertension can lead to a decline in the overall health of employees in a workplace, contribute to an increase in health-related expenses for employers and employees, and lead to lower productivity and/or days of work missed. Many businesses have realized the benefits of health promotion, and to curb the costs of rising health care offer workplace health programs to their employees. Ideally, the office should be a place protecting the safety and well-being of employees while providing them with opportunities for better long-term health.
In a study published January 2014 in CDC's Preventing Chronic Disease, Bonauto and colleagues looked at data from 37,626 employees in Washington State and found that the overall incidence of obesity among workers was 24.6%.1 The authors also note that obesity rates varied by job type. For instance, only 11.6% of those in health-diagnosing occupations, for example doctors, dentists, and veterinarians, were obese. On the other hand, 38.6% of truck drivers, who spend most of their days sitting, were obese. The authors of this study acknowledge the importance of physical activities and their availability at the workplace in preventing obesity.
Although chronic diseases like obesity are among the most common and costly of all health problems, adopting healthy lifestyles can help prevent them. A workplace health program aimed at keeping employees healthy is a key long-term human asset management strategy.
