Generally, people desire to be in the best physical shape they can be. However, not everyone puts enough efforts to achieve his or her fitness goals. People understand the universal benefits of fitness such as better health and flexibility, but they don’t seem to grasp the major beneficial changes fitness offers within the workplace. For instance, a study shows that fit employees are less likely to get sick which means being healthy alone will strongly boost your contribution to your organization. Nowadays, fitness has been used as a popular method for employers to boost the overall productivity within the workplace. Employers attempt to make the workplace more flexible and fitness-orientated for the employees’ health.
There are countless benefits of maintaining fitness within the workplace. Fitness tends to bring out the best attitudes from the employees due to well-balanced physicality and mentality. It also develops one’s self confidence because an individual must set and eventually reach one’s fitness goals to be fit & healthy. Therefore, those employees who have made themselves proud by maintaining top-physical conditions are already aware that nothing is impossible if they put the similar efforts they put in for their fitness goals. Also, self-confidence of an employee naturally leads to an energetic employee who inspire others to gain self-confidence as well.
The CEO of Direct Consultant LLC, Myeka Johnson, is also an employer who highly values fitness. She is aware that to be an efficient & effective leader in her workplace, she must prioritize & take care of herself. Therefore, she often exercises about three times a week even with her hectic schedule. She believes that everyone’s goal in life should be maximizing his or her full potential, and fitness should be utilized as an important tool to achieve it.
