You could also do a seminar on stress reduction techniques, mind/body connections, have local gyms or personal trainers do demo classes to see the different forms of exercise, Getting rest sleep and its relationship to weight gain, environmental toxins, diet myths vs. realties, detoxes: good or bad, have a few local farmers come in (organic is it worth the price?), etc.
Think of all the areas that impact a person’s health. You can also poll the employees to see what they want to learn more about.
You can give them suggestions about different things they can do when they are home or in their free time and it doesn’t look like they are exercising (even though they are great activities). For example take the stairs instead of the elevator, when shoveling snow use a shovel and not a snow blower, when they cut the grass they should use a mower which they have to push manually instead of a self-propelled one, walk more instead of driving, etc.
I hope this helps!
Hi Michele. I’ve done a ton of corporate wellness programming and seminars. One that I think would be great is “how to fit exercise into your daily life” (this would include both at the office AND perhaps more importantly simple ways to add exercise at home (I often recommend performing exercises during commercial breaks given how much time the average person spends at home in front of the television 🙂
I hope that this helps.
