How To Celebrate and Participate
Do a quick Google search or check your local Facebook events because there will be more than 500 groups across the country hosting women’s health and fitness events on Wednesday September 25! Events will be held at community locations such as health clubs, parks and recreation districts, local health and service organizations, schools, senior centers, hospitals, retirement communities, and houses of worship.
If you are looking to participate on a more personal level, make September 25 the day you decide to take control of your own health. Schedule out your doctor’s appointments and checkups, talk to your doctor and do research to learn more about committing to a healthy lifestyle, start an exercise routine, start making healthy substitutions and focusing on your nutrition, etc.!
National Women’s Health and Fitness Day provides an excellent opportunity for your organization to reiterate all the wellness programs and services you offer. Communicate with your employees and explain how they can utilize company wellness offerings to take control of their health. This little refresh may be just what your employees need to kickstart their participation! Your organization can also participate by hosting a wellness lunch and learn, organize a company walk, provide informational handouts, or arrange for an onsite workout class.
