Fully Fit Forever is squarely aimed at developing healthy and active workplaces and lifestyles FOREVER.
In Australia, it is well documented that our waist lines are increasing and our health, as a result, is deteriorating. Being overweight increases the likelihood of developing chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Obesity is a killer! This is just the beginning when it comes to the impact of health on our workplace health and productivity. Research highlights that;
– 3.5million workers are suffering from depression
– 30% of workers have some form of low back pain
– $61billion dollars is spent on obesity related health issues per year
– $14.8billion dollars of lost productivity through stress related absenteeism
Fully Fit Forever is proud to support partnering not for profits, including beyondblue, through alignment with Fully Fit Feb, an annual 28 day health and fitness challenge raising funds and awareness for a number of wonderful community and organisational based programs aimed at changing behaviours!
