Fit-Friendly Worksites Program
Start Your Company Walking
Heart disease is the No. 1 killer in the U.S., and physical inactivity doubles the risk. This is a scary thought when you realize we spend most of our waking hours sitting behind our desks at work. But all is not lost! If your office becomes a Fit-Friendly Worksite, you can help lower the risk of heart disease for yourself and your coworkers.
Fit-Friendly Worksites are recognized by the American Heart Association as employers who go above and beyond when it comes to their employees' health. With your help, your workplace can:
- Provide walking routes
- Promote walking programs and tracking tools
- Allow staff to wear athletic shoes on designated "sneaker days"
The road to a healthier life is not a short one. But working for a Fit-Friendly Worksite certainly puts you on the right path.
