Workplace Physical Education

Activate Exercise Clinic offers tailor made educational training for all types of workplaces. Depending on the specific requirements of your workplace, we offer group seminars to employees, as well as individual workplace  education at your business location.

According to Exercise is Medicine Australia:

“Research shows that engaging workplace health programs result in, on average:

• Reduction in sick leave by 25%;
• Decrease in workers compensation costs by 40%;
• Decrease in disability management costs by 24%

In summary this means for every $1 invested in employee health your company saves on average $5.81. (Health and Productivity Institute of Australia, 2010)”
