CORPORATE/BUSINESS WELLNESS/FITNESS PROGRAM:
Typically, fitness centers factor prominently into a package of benefits aimed to attract professional staffing. The fitness center, while contributing significantly in the mission of company operations, actually serves to complete the image of a well rounded employer community. Therefore, many companies consider it is just as important to put a strong effort into the development and upkeep of a fitness program as it is to invest in the other highly-valued benefit packages.
Some of the benefits, of a I am Dr. Fitness, Inc. Wellness Center program, that can be realized by your companies’ staff are outlined below:
Improved Employee Satisfaction: Providing a means for the employees to use the equipment properly, participate in group classes and access after hours fitness support would be a truly unique amenity. Improving consistency, decreasing injuries and creating a healthy social environment will increase employee satisfaction.
Increased Employee Retention: Creating an environment where employees believe they are valued is key to retention. Investing in your employee’s health by providing a professional personal training staff and a community in which they can build meaningful relationships with other employees may help increase retention.
More Attractive Benefit Package: Additional amenities, especially those relating to health and fitness, have the potential to increase staffing. Often companies offer a fitness center, but no expertise to supplement the center. Showing potential applicants how you, the employer is interested in promoting a healthy lifestyle, especially with a well-rounded program such as that offered by I am Dr. Fitness, Inc., is a positive addition to the benefit package.
Manageable Health and Fitness Program: I am Dr. Fitness, Inc. offers a one-stop, reliable, flexible and professional health and fitness solution to your staff.

Not only can the trainers travel to the employees for private appointments, but they bring with them a customized, fun and effective training program at the center customized to your companies’ staff’s wants and needs. Fitness training is available in the form of traditional aerobics and strength training, whereas stress management and nutrition will also be addressed.
