The Hard Facts
Participating in physical fitness activities for up to 7 hours a week, can lower your risk of early death by 40%.
When overweight people lose up to 5-7% of their total bodyweight, they dramatically decrease their chance of developing Type II Diabetes.
According to the American Cancer Society “Obesity and physical inactivity may account for 25 – 30% of several major cancers including colon, breast, endometrial, kidney and oesophogeal.
Numerous studies have shown that regular exercise can dramatically increase your mood. Exercise has even been shown to be more effective than anti-depressant medication for the treatment of depression – in fact; it is so effective that regular EXERCISE is now prescribed by doctors in the United Kingdom.
IN THE WORKPLACE
The main PREVENTABLE contributors to employee absenteeism are:
- Depression/Anxiety/Mental Health Problems (many cases go unreported but the effect on the company remain) – 66%
- Stress – 60%
- Poor relationships with superiors – 44%
- Co-worker conflict in the workplace – 28%
- Childcare Issues – 24%
In a major study, a meta analysis of the literature on costs and savings associated with workplace wellness programs found medical costs fall by about $3.27 for every $1 spent on wellness programs, and that absenteeism costs fall by about $2.73 for every $1 spent.
“Employer wellness program implementation has seen some real peaks and valleys, but over the last 10 to 15 years, repeated studies have verified a positive return on investment when programs are implemented and more employers are becoming interested.”
