If you want a happier workforce, a customised fitness plan is the way forward

Exercise doesn’t just improve your physical health, it also has a big impact on your mental wellbeing. Endorphins released during a workout elevate mood and lower feelings of stress, and those effects can last for many hours. It stands to reason, then, that if employees are given a chance to work out during the day, they will be happier when they return to their desks.

Firing on all cylinders

The majority of people report feeling a ‘buzz’ or a ‘high’ after a workout, and that’s because their brains have been flooded by the ‘happy hormones’ such as dopamine and serotonin. While you might think exercise would have a draining effect on the body and brain, it actually does the opposite. A successful workout leaves people feeling more positive and boosts concentration, meaning they are firing on all cylinders when they return to work.

A happier workforce is more productive

People who are happier in their day to day work are almost always more productive. Employees who enjoy a personalised fitness course not only hit that emotional high, they also feel they have achieved something and gain confidence. A confidence boost from hitting their fitness goals will often translate into more motivation and productivity in the office, as they replicate that sense of achievement.
