Sane and Slim: Surviving the Holidays
Holidays are supposed to be a time of joyful celebration with friends and family; however, they often become stressful events that result in a food coma and a few extra pounds. Luckily, you can enjoy healthy versions of your favorite holiday treats, while avoiding certain popular holiday favorites that further stress the body. Fortify yourself for the holidays by learning not only what sugary and high calorie treats will lead to fatigue, ancient, and weight gain, but also what holiday favorites are on the "safe" list. Your waist line will thank you.
There are dozens of sports drinks, energy supplements, and protein powders on the market for athletes, and it can be daunting trying to weed through them all and determine what is best for your body. This workshop is tailored to employees who are eager to learn ways to optimize their performance in the gym or on the sports field through nutrition. The seminar will focus on optimal hydration, pre and post workout meals, reducing your recovery time, improving injury healing time, and reducing inflammation.

Wake up. Eat breakfast. Drive to the office. Sit at your desk. Eat lunch. Attend meetings. Commute home. Crash on the sofa to eat dinner and watch TV before falling asleep....repeat. Does this sedentary routine sound familiar?
Unfortunately, the average American spends 7.7 hours a day seated and this inactivity negatively affects their health and productivity, according to studies conducted by Harvard Medical School. Corporate fitness programs help to combat the detrimental health effects that result from the typical sedentary work environment. The US Department of Health and Human Services reported that, “Worksites with physical activity programs helped to reduce health care costs of employees by 20-55%, reduce short term sick leave by 6-32%, and increase productivity by 2-52%.” Fortis Wellness provides dynamic fitness programs to strengthen your individual employees and consequently your company at large.

Attention Nutritional Therapist Practitioners:
If you would like to help change the health and culture of corporate America by providing corporate wellness programs to businesses in your area, I encourage you to consider starting your own corporate wellness program, using the Fortis Corporate Wellness Program packet. This NTP specific program will include a participant booklet with recipes, food journals, worksheets, and weight tracking sheets. Furthermore, as a Corporate Wellness instructor you will receive power point presentations, marketing material, and a comprehensive teacher's manual to guide you through. This program is a great business model for recent graduates who want to help large numbers of Americans but who don't have the capital for expensive office space.
