Wellness workshop: Get the picture - your health related physical fitness

Posted on August 29, 2016

In order to make smart choices regarding your own health it is important to be well informed and have a well-developed picture of their current health status.

The purpose of this workshop is to give staff members deeper insight into Health Related Physical Fitness (HRPF) and to help them understand why the 5 components that make up HRFP are so important to their own health.

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

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

Please note that there are limited spaces available and we can only accommodate 10 people. We need to work on a first come first serve basis.  The first applications will be accepted. Make sure your place is reserved for our brand new 2016 health workshops.
