If you have been busy working at the office all day often the last thing you feel like doing when you finish work is going to the gym! In fact 77% of people who have a gym membership hardly ever attend! Yet you desire to be fit. You want to lose weight and tone up. Above all you want to be healthy, so you know you need to exercise. What is the solution?
Well one great solution is office personal training. With Corporate personal training the Personal Trainer comes to you, at your place of work, so it’s incredibly convenient. You can choose to do your exercise session either right there at your desk, or head into an empty office space.
Your Personal Trainer will design a workout that can be done then and there in the office, perhaps even making use of some of the furniture and equipment that is laying around.
There are many reasons to consider corporate personal training.
Today more and more companies are turning to corporate personal training and wellness programs for their employees in order to help them stay healthy and well. This in turn, increases productivity and reduces absenteeism.
In 2011 Sunlife calculated that 9.3 days per employee were lost on average through sickness leave in Canada (See the source here). Now employers are looking for solutions to address this issue and corporate personal training is proving to be an effective measure.
It is a well-known fact that regular exercise, combined with a healthy diet, helps people to remain well and fight off disease. It makes sense then that employers would look to bring in Personal Trainers who will encourage their staff to exercise regularly, provide a program to do so, as well as advise and support them to eat well.
The Benefits Of Office Personal Training
Apart from the convenience factor, your Personal Trainer can also help you to offset some of the damage which is caused by sitting at a desk all day. Sitting for long periods of time is actually very unnatural for humans, and is incredibly bad for our bodies, posture and backs.
You may notice that you are stiff and perhaps you even suffer from a sore neck or back pain, all symptoms of sitting too long. Office personal training will encourage you to get up out of your seat and move around. With Corporate personal training, your trainer will be able to give you exercises to stretch your muscles and mobilize your back and other joints, easing stiffness and helping to reduce back pain. It’s amazing what a difference it can make even just to do some basic back mobility exercises, you will be a lot more comfortable and could even be pain free.
Strengthening your muscles will also help you to increase your core strength, improve your posture and offset any imbalances you may have in your body. Quite aside from the fact that you will burn calories, lose fat and shape up.
Your Trainer will also be able to prescribe some simple exercises that you can do while you are at your desk or in the office between training sessions, so that you can keep moving. This will help to keep your metabolism going throughout the day, improve circulation and help you to stay healthy. The long term benefits could be a significantly reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.
All too often the typical shape of an office worker is ‘podgy around the edges’ however this needn’t be the case for you! Instead work with your office personal training sessions for optimum health and a better body!
Other benefits of working out at the office include increased alertness, improved concentration and even heightened mood.
Workouts can be tailored to your needs so that you don’t even need to change out of your work clothes if you don’t want to!
Even if you work from home office personal training is an option for you. Or, if you are the boss at your company, why not call us to see how office personal training can benefit your workforce and improve productivity.

More and More Employers Are Buying Into Corporate Personal Training
Throughout history, it has always been left up to the individual to stay fit and healthy. Health and wellness have been a personal responsibility. However, all too often people do not look after their health properly and get sick as a result. This costs employers in Canada billions of pounds in lost revenue each year.
The modern day pressures faced by many people working in corporate Canada today means that they do not keep fit and well. Add to that most corporate employees are working longer hours than ever before, and it’s no surprise that there is a problem.
Lack of time is often cited as the number one reason why people don’t exercise regularly, with tiredness / lack of motivation being the second.
Many workers have good intentions, however, after a long day on the job those intentions fly out the window. People are opting to slouch in front of the TV with a beer or glass of wine instead of hitting the gym. This is evidenced by the fact that so many ‘paid for’ gym memberships go unused.
Some companies and corporations took steps to address this issue by installing gyms into their office buildings, and, although this helped, it still isn’t enough to solve the problem.
Why Corporate Personal Training Is the Gold Standard In Improving Employee Health
It is one of the basic principles of human psychology that people will do things for two primary reasons – to get out of pain or to get more pleasure.
Most people want to be healthier, slimmer and more toned (the pleasure) however, there are barriers standing in the way of taking the actions that would get them there (the pain). Barriers like self-motivation, thinking long term, overcoming tiredness and taking the time to workout.
Remove some of these barriers and you make it far easier for people to say yes. Human behaviour change dictates that people are much more likely to do something when it’s easy for them. When you bring a Personal Trainer into the office you make it incredibly easy for your employees to stay healthy.
When it’s that easy it will be a no-brainer for most of your workforce!
