When you think about exercise, you probably aren't pondering work in the same sentence, other than perhaps knowing that your fitness regimen starts either before or after you get home from the office or your place of employment.
Decades ago, work and exercise never were synonymous with one another or related in any way possible. They've always been viewed as two separate entities that would rarely if ever intertwine.
Corporate health fairs and wellness initiatives in the office has sparked anything from debate to change within the confines of the four walls where you work. These once bland table and chair is being replaced by stability balls and treadmill desks. Co workers are eating healthier at the office and workplaces with cafes or cafeterias are starting to take note that pizza and French fries aren't always the norm.
Companies of course want their co workers healthy and well so that insurance premiums remain in check, so they're all about saving millions by just adjusting the restrains with in the office and no longer looking down on people who take a walk outside on a nice day or give them a few extra minutes at the end of the day to get to the doctor's for their corporate wellness check up. Some employers even are giving employees credit in their paychecks for having completed physicals with their primary doctors or having completed a health screening at work.
