  • Spending just $50 per person on its wellness program, Union Pacific
    Railroad achieved net savings of $1.26 million a year.

  • The DuPont Co. credits workplace health programs with reducing absenteeism 14%.

  • A Dutch Study reported that people who exercise just once a week in employee fitness programs average almost five fewer sick days per year than non-exercisers. In 1988, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics called Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI) the leading cause of occupational illness in the
    United States. It represented 48% of all workplace illnesses, making it among the most common stress-related injuries. RSI affected workers and computer users in a variety of fields: auto workers, garment workers, meat packers, supermarket clerks and office workers.

  • In 1997, "The Journal of Commerce" reported an estimated $12 billion in medical costs and lost wages from RSI in North America.

  • Wellness programs have the potential to improve employee retention and strengthen an organization's recruiting position with prospective employees.

 

 

What clients say about
FITNESS DESIGNS:

 

"Jessie coached me to victory! When I wanted to train for my best performance at an international triathlon, Jessie showed me the way and gave me the encouragement I needed. I followed the daily workout plans, her advice on nutrition and injury prevention, and learned from her the value of a variety of training routines. I went to Canada and came home with a first place finish in my division! Best of all, I had a great coach who was as excited as I was with my victory and each of the milestones I reached along the way."
