Exercise Classes in Your Workplace

I can design and implement a class series or a single workshop for health in the workplace specifically for your employees. Connect me with your HR department and let’s make it happen!

Classes that work well on site:

  1. Pilates/Yoga – for core strength

  2. Stretching and Self Massage – for the prevention of repetitive motion injuries commonly seen in office environments

  3. Healthy Eating – for the holidays, on the go for traveling employees, at home, vegetarian, heart health, etc.

Anything your employees can think of…

A short Strengthening routine

After walking or warming up try any or all of the following:
• Lunges or Squats x 10 per leg (quadriceps/front of leg and glutes)
• Bicep curls with band or bottle of liquid (10 x per arm)
• Standing Hamstring Curls (10 x per leg)
• Tricep overhead extensions with band, or water bottle/can o beans OR tricep dips (10x)
