  • TURNOVER
  • PRODUCTIVITY

HERE'S WHY

inactivity is being called the new smoking

THE #1 DRIVER OF

HEALTH CARE COSTS

Because of the wide range of attributable diseases including diabetes, heart disease as well as about 1/3rd of breast and colon cancer, and many more, 1 in 10 premature deaths are due to physical inactivity Because of this, a study done by the state of California pins physical inactivity as the number one driver of healthcare costs in the US.

We now know that helping someone get active is as effective at treating depression as the leading prescription anti-depressant. On top of that, activity is the number one prescription for chronic fatigue as well as stress.

PREMATURE DEATH

1 in 10

In the US, 1 in every 10 deaths are a direct result of insufficient physical activity.

BREAST CANCER

40%

Women who are active on a regular basis have a 40% lower risk of dying from breast cancer.

HEART DISEASE

35%

According to US Dept of Health, 35% of heart disease mortality is due to lack of activity.

but thats not the only reason

ACTIVE EMPLOYEES MAKE

GREAT EMPLOYEES

MEMORY

Even moderate exercise is shown to incite neurogenisis resulting in measurable growth of the hippocampus and improved memory.

STRESS

Increased endorphin levels caused by moderate activity are shown to diminish feeling of worry. Exercise also lowers cortisol levels, the stress hormone, improving mood and diminishing anxiety.

DECISIONS

As more oxygen reaches the brain, the prefrontal cortex (the part of your brain involved in planning and reasoning) performs better.

ENERGY

After about 20 minutes of activity endorphins kick in which have an immediate and lasting energy boosting effect. Activity also increases physiological efficiency

PRODUCTIVITY

Improved memory, decision making, and energy, along with lower stress, helps boost employee productivity up to 12%.

12%

ABSENTEEISM

Employees who are active 3 or more times per week have been shown to miss 5-6 fewer days each year.

5-6

TURNOVER

Employees who participate in fitness programs have been shown to have 15% lower turnover than non-participants.
