"Leave it to a wise university to know that healthy employees are better employees, who have more energy, more productivity, and more appreciation for an employer who also cares about their personal well-being."
"I regularly exercise but this program gave me the motivation to start involving my coworkers in my weekly exercise schedule - e.g. I've met people from other departments as we now go to a weekly circuits class together (enabled through the free 6 week trial offer). I've also gotten to know my coworkers better and in a different environment, and I've had FUN! My coworker and I are now meeting at the weekend to work-out. So, not only has this program been an incentive to maintain my activity levels, it's been great for helping me to find new friends!"
