Why it’s important?
Of these, 39% are clinically obese and 36% overweight
Australian employees don’t exercise enough
14% of workers are completely inactive, 40% engage in only minimal exercise, and another 18% do less than one hour of physical activity per week. This is significantly less than the amount recommended by the Australian National Activity Guidelines, which recommends adults do at least 30 minutes of moderate to intense physical activity on most days
How we improve it?
Corporate Gym membership
FUSS has partnered with 24 hour gyms in Rockhampton, North Rockhampton and Gracemere to provide corporate gym memberships for Sibelco workers at a discounted price that can be accessed 24 hours a day to accommodate shift workers. Gym memberships are provided with an individualised program, created by FUSS’s accredited exercise physiologist to ensure your workers are safely improving their health. Programs are monitored and revised every 10 weeks to ensure compliance and continued progress.
Fire Up Boot-camp (outdoor) 1 per week, 6 month contract
FUSS’s fitness professional will tailor an outdoor fitness class designed to motivate, inspire and push people a little bit further than they’d normally push themselves in when training alone. This is a great activity to increase employee morale and teamwork
