Are you a business owner? Do your staff spend most of their time sitting? If yes, then you NEED to hear this!
“SITTING DISEASE”: it’s what we (and others) are calling the negative impact that being immobile for extended periods is having on society at large. Most of us know this. But what most of us do NOT know is that even if you workout every day for an hour – if you sit the rest of the time – that “working out” won’t reverse the affects of the sitting as much as you might think (or hope) it does.
As business owners, it’s also important to realize that all this “sitting” is making your employees less productive, more prone to injury, and more likely to take time off due to persistent medical conditions..
In our workshop called “SITTING DISEASE: Why You MUST Change The Way You Work”, Dr. Chris Raynor – orthopaedic surgeon, sports medicine specialist – delivers the scientific facts on this new age phenomenon, and gives people – in this case those in the workplace – the tools they need to live healthier, more mobile, more productive lives.
These sessions include a lecture (which typically lasts around 40 min and is a power point presentation with medical/scientific data and background) and an active component (whatever time is left is devoted to teaching simple movements appropriate for any workplace).
As an alternative, you could opt for our Sitting Disease Practical Workshop which includes a handout summarizing the important points of the medical lecture, access to a PDF of our Workplace Mobility Guide to distribute to your staff, and a one hour ACTIVE session at your location to review some of these exercises in person and go over the safety cues in detail with one of our qualified coaches. This is perfect for a LUNCH AND LEARN!
1 hour medical talk + short practical session $500+HST
1 and 1/2 hours medical talk + extended practical session $700+HST
1 hour practical session only $300+HST
