UP Wellness workshop - Get the picture: Your health-related physical fitness

Posted on March 31, 2016

In order to make smart choices regarding your own health, it is important to be well informed and have a clear understanding of your current health status.

The purpose of this workshop is to improve staff members’ insight into health-related physical fitness (HRPF) and to help them understand why the five components that make up HRFP are so important to their own health.

During the workshop, staff will do an InBody body composition analysis to assess their heart health and blood pressure. An optional fitness assessment may also be done. The assessment results will be thoroughly explained and discussed. At the end of the workshop, participants should have a clear picture of their own HRPF profiles and should be able to make informed lifestyle choices.

Staff members who wish to participate in the optional fitness assessment must please wear comfortable shoes and clothes that do not restrict movement.

Note that we can accommodate only 10 people and that participants will be accepted on a first come first served basis. Please ensure that your booking is secured for the 2016 revamped wellness workshops on various relevant topics.
