Wellness through Fitness through Events!
The future of corporate wellness lies with the ability to effectively engage employees and motivate them towards health and fitness. At Benefitness Partners we believe passionately in the power of movement: walk a mile, take a yoga class, go to the gym. To paraphrase someone very smart, "a body in motion will stay in motion forever unless something weird happens."
We also believe that the best way to get in motion is to set a goal that involves doing something physical on a certain date in the future. If you give yourself a deadline you'll stick to it, and if your goal offers just the right amount of challenge you'll be motivated to work towards it. So how does a 5k sound? Or even a marathon? How about getting a group together and doing both?
Among other things, Benefitness Partners is a Corporate Ambassador for the Colfax Marathon, an iconic local non-profit event that works with 190 different charities. The marathon weekend (20th and 21st of May, 2017) offers runners the opportunity to run a 5k, a ten-miler, a half marathon, full marathon, or a five-person relay team for the marathon. We actively encourage our corporate clients to enter individuals and teams, and not just 'runners' but everyone who wants to 'give it a go', and then we put together training plans and education programs to make sure everyone's ready to go on race day!
