Pass along tremendous savings to your employees by establishing a Corporate or Group Membership account at Pro Fitness. Memberships can be subsidized or simply passed on as a savings to your staff. Corporate/Group Memberships are a leading recruiting and retention tool for many of today's most progressive companies. Fees vary based on participation.
At Pro Fitness, we tie worker productivity directly to the health care issue. We believe that traditional approaches to the current health care crisis are misdirected. These traditional efforts are what we call reactive--that is, they wait until after the worker has been stricken with illness or injury, and then pay for the necessary treatments. Our approach, which emphasizes prevention and good health promotion, is much more proactive.
By helping employees change their behavior patterns and choose more healthy lifestyles, Pro Fitness will lower companies' health care expenditures, while raising worker productivity. Health care expenditures will decrease due to reduced medical insurance premiums, reduced absenteeism, reduced turnover rates, reduced worker's compensation claims, reduced tardiness, shorter hospital stays, etc.

Benefits to Employees

Other benefits to individuals include but are not limited to: weight reduction, reduced tension and feelings of stress, improved well being, enhanced self-image and self-esteem, and improved physical function.
