Corporate Wellness – Why it’s Important
In the U.S., more than 81% of businesses have some form of health promotion program(2). With annual increases in health care costs and benefit claims, sedentary lifestyles and poor health are costing companies money. Employers see corporate wellness as a way to prevent health issues, which will reduce claims, make for healthier employees and save the company money. Overall, employers are realizing there is a significant link between prevention and investing in the health of their staff.
Estimates show that overweight and obese employees cost American companies $12.7 billion a year, including higher medical bills, higher health insurance costs, lower productivity and 39 million lost workdays(1). Studies show that for every dollar spent on preventive health programs, a company can save as much as $6 in insurance costs(1). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently reported that the overweight epidemic affects two-thirds of U.S. adults and is not just a health issue.(1)
How will an exercise program improve the health and job satisfaction of a worker?
- Studies by the University of Michigan show that employers can save an average of: (1)
- $1,100 a year for every employee who breaks his or her addictive smoking habit.
- $269 a year for every employee who progresses from couch potato to fitness enthusiast.
- $1,200 a year on employees who reduce their cholesterol levels from 240 milligrams to 190 milligrams.
- $177 a year for every employee who goes from obesity (more than 30 pounds overweight) to a healthy weight.

What is the RnR corporate fitness program?
The RnR corporate fitness program is a structured fitness and nutrition program encouraging employees to compete against themselves to get into the best shape of their lives. We provide competitors with an exercise/training schedule and information on proper nutrition and supplementation to attain specific goals. Before and after benchmarks are documented and tracked to show measurable results on an individual basis.
Why should you offer the RnR program to your employees?
Workplace wellness programs are recognized by more and more companies for their value in improving the health and well being of their employees. Investing in a corporate workplace wellness program like RoadHouse is recognized as the smart way to improve overall employee morale, as well as reduce employee turnover and overall health care costs. By implementing RoadHouse in your organization, you create a more energetic, positive and productive workplace that provides meaningful gains for your company or organization.
Four easy steps to launching your RnR corporate fitness program:
- Obtain full approval from your Human Resources Department.
- Send an e-mail to CrossFitRoadhouse@gmail.com
that includes the following information:
- Name of your company
- Number of employees
- Contact name and number for the program facilitator
- Once we receive this information, we will work with you to organize a RnR program suited to your company’s needs and size.
- Once we have worked out the right program for your company, you will receive (by email), an Entry Kit PDF and an employee Getting Started PDF that includes printable nutrition and fitness guides. While the program is easy to follow and does not require constant support from an outside source, we will also provide a dedicated digital line of communication for your team as a resource for their individual fitness journey.
Making RnR a Successful Program
The RnR program is designed to be a lifestyle, not a diet. This is part of what makes the program so successful. When your employees participate in the program, they will be making lifestyle changes that will be beneficial both to their personal lives and your company. Here are some tips to encourage participation and completion:
- Offer a reward or incentive for participants: While the most rewarding benefit of participating in the RnR program is the transformation of the body, mind and spirit as members lose fat, gain muscle and increase their self-confidence, offering an internal reward encourages healthy competition and anticipation among employees.
- Schedule an initial meeting. This is the perfect time to explain the details of the program and generate excitement around the program. Take this time to explain to your employees why their health is important to you, and how they can benefit from a healthier lifestyle – increased energy (to play with kids) etc. We have staff available to assist with this meeting.
- Send out weekly emails. During the program, send out weekly emails to encourage people and remind them to track their progress against their goals.
- Scheduled RnR socials. Work with RnR to schedule off-site socials to encourage participants to talk about successes and challenges that they have faced and how they have adapted. You should foster group interaction as much as possible; it can be difficult to undertake a life-changing program alone.
