What is Workplace Wellness


Workplace wellness is a new age term.  The term  workplace wellness is any workplace health promotion activity or organizational policy designed to support healthy behavior in the workplace and to improve health outcomes.  It came about because of the growing costs of insurance over the years.  The goal of workplace wellness is to get employees making healthy choices and getting them more active.

Workplace wellness can be done in a different ways.  One way is to partner with the YMCA of Catawba Valley to offer corporate memberships for its employees.  The Y is will to work with most any organization seeking to get their workforce healthy.  At the Y, we want every business to work with us to improve the health of all their employees.  By partnering with the Y each employee has the chance to get fit in any way they choose.

Each employee who becomes a member of the Y has the chance to get healthy by enrolling in our coaching connection program.  Which is a free 6 week program where they meet with a wellness coach once a week for 6 weeks.  During those 6 weeks the person is exposed to many different kinds of exercise.  The person can also try our group exercise classes.  We have classes of varying intensities.  The intensity can range from anything from yoga to zumba to kickboxing to insanity.  The Y has a class that is right for you all you need to do it try it and find the one you like.  If the employee is already fit then the employee could use the facility to help maintain their health.  They would have full access to all the cardio, machines, and free weights.
