Newark, DE (PRWEB) April 17, 2012
In response to the obesity epidemic in the United States and the clear need for additional exercise and activity in the American lifestyle, Leisure Fitness has expanded its Wellness Outreach Program to include its first audience participation wellness seminar, Walking Wellness. The Walking Wellness Seminar addresses the benefits of living a healthy active lifestyle, points out the glaring level of inactivity that exists in many of our lives, and provides solutions on how to overcome many of the obstacles preventing working Americans from exercising.
To help the audience members experience first-hand how easy it can be to begin making a difference in their overall health; Leisure Fitness replaced the furniture in the presentation room at its Corporate Headquarters in Newark, DE with thirteen LifeSpan TR1200-DT Treadmill Desks. The idea is to have each participant walking at a moderate pace while they listen to Leisure Fitness’ Wellness Director, Dr. Paul Kennedy, discuss the benefits of walking.
Leisure Fitness Corporate Headquarters employees were the first audience members to experience the Walking Wellness Seminar. The participating employees, who ranged in size from 5’2” to 6’5”, and fitness level from novice to certified trainer, brought their tablets, laptops, and notebooks to the meeting ready to learn. After a brief overview of the TR1200-DT, each participant adjusted the height and speed of their treadmill desks to fit their needs and Dr. Paul delivered his presentation. This presentation including Q&A runs approximately 25 to 45 minutes.
Paul Bastianelli, Chief Executive Officer of Leisure Fitness, one of the participants in the initial presentation, commented “The Walking Wellness seminar is very informative and provides great motivation to improve our lifestyle. I actually walked over a half-mile while learning from Dr. Paul. It was great!”
The Walking Wellness Seminar is part of Leisure Fitness Be Fit, Stay Fit Wellness Outreach Program, a series of free wellness seminars available to companies and organizations in the communities where Leisure Fitness has stores.
