Wellness Education that Motivates and Works
Get your employees on the path to wellness
A healthier workforce equals a healthier bottom line. If you want to increase productivity,
reduce health insurance and Workers Comp costs, improve morale and decrease
absenteeism, Fit For Ever’s wellness education programs are the answer. Our wellness
course, “The Realistic Approach to Better Health,” is available as a one-time seminar or an
BBT Seminar – This fast-paced 30- to 45-minute seminar will get your employees
focused on the basics of stress and time management, good nutrition and regular
exercise. This can be a stand-alone motivational wellness class, or, as a follow-up to
the awareness screening program, can be used as a time to distribute and discuss
the individualized wellness plans.
Wellness Classes – Research has shown that it usually takes 45 to 60 days to form
new lifestyle habits. Our 8-week wellness course capitalizes on this. These wellness
classes, which are held onsite before, during or after the work day, give participants
the information and motivation they need to get and stay on the path to wellness.
The starting point of the wellness course is the awareness screening. Each participant
receives an individual health and wellness screening during the first week of the program.
Classes are then held during weeks 2 through 7. At the first wellness class, participants are
given their individualized wellness plans (created based on the information learned during
the screening) plus a workbook. During each class the instructor, Rick Reghetti, provides
information and motivation about specific wellness topics, and leads discussions regarding
the successes and challenges that participants are experiencing. A second round of
individual health and wellness screening appointments are held during the 8th and final
week of the course. At these appointments each participant immediately receives their test
results and has an individual consultation with Rick about their going-forward wellness
Health Risk Awareness Screening:
The Key to a Successful Wellness Program
Start with convenient onsite awareness screening
While most Southern California health and wellness educators offer a “one size fits all”
approach to health and wellness, Fit For Ever understands that to be followed, plans need
to be tailored to each participant’s individual health issues, lifestyle and needs. That’s why
the starting point of our full corporate health and fitness program is detailed onsite
awareness screening called a Health Risk Assessment.
Each onsite Health Risk Awareness Screening includes:
Wellness history – Individual medical and injury history; family medical
Current lifestyle – Nutritional habits; exercise habits; day-to-day work
schedules and responsibilities from morning to night.
Body composition analysis – The state-of-the-art InBody520 is utilized to
measure weight, lean body mass and body fat mass.
Test results include:
Body Mass Index (BMI)
Overall percentage of body fat
Body Water Balance measurement – Greater intercellular water reflects
a stronger immune system.
Segmental Lean Development information – Indicates if an individual
is allowing one side of their body to dominate during exercise, which can
lead to injuries.
o Cholesterol test
o Blood pressure test
Grip measurement test
Then get individualized wellness plans
This detailed awareness screening gives us a good picture of each participating employee’s
current health and wellness status and risks. Based on this information we then create
individualized wellness plans designed to help each person reach their wellness goals. Each
plan addresses all aspects of wellness, including:
Stress and time management – A variety of techniques are presented; individuals are
encouraged to try each one to see what works for them.
Sleep management – A variety of techniques are presented; individuals are encouraged to
try each one to see what works for them.
Exercise program – Including customized recommendations for flexibility, weight
resistance and aerobic exercise.
Nutritional program – Each person is given a list of foods to choose from based on their
stated food preferences and recommended caloric intake of protein, fats and complex
carbohydrates. For example, an employee who presently prefers a particular type of ethnic
cuisine would be given options for “fine-tuning” their choices within that ethnic cuisine. Our
goal is to encourage people to gradually make healthier food choices; we know that
attempts to make drastic changes are rarely successful.
