Fitness in the Workplace

3 November 2017 By AIS Aquatic and Fitness Centre

The evidence is clear and overwhelming - regular exercise is good for you and doing it regularly and consistently will have a positive effect on many areas of your life. This can be clearly shown in the workplace.

Less sick days, more energy and ability to focus and produce results, more confidence and an improved ability to handle and respond to stress. What more could you want?

All of those factors will most certainly place you in a better position to win that promotion or new job.

Participation in a work-based exercise program can greatly increase job satisfaction and help to counter boredom and complacency. It can also encourage other positive health-related behaviours, such as quitting smoking or weight loss.

Exercise doesn’t need to be complicated - it just needs to be regular. The following are some examples of how exercising can be made easier:
  • organise fellow staff members for lunch time sporting games - touch football, soccer, volleyball or cricket
  • start a walking group
  • participate in a workplace fitness program
  • engage a good Personal Trainer
Regular exercise, combined with sound dietary habits, WILL make a difference in many areas of your life, especially in a place where you spend a large chunk of your time... at work!
