Think happy hour can’t be healthy?
We proved otherwise at Lloyd Companies with our first Bootcamp & Beer event.
It’s part of our ongoing partnership with CPM Fitness to deliver easy health and wellness advice and activities for employees.
“We teamed up with CPM Fitness and the wellness committee to come up with a fun event to get employees active,” said Angie Schauer, an administrative support aide. “And with beer, we kind of drew them in.”
First, there was a quick 20-minute workout of body weight exercises like squats and crunches with views of the Big Sioux River from inside our CNA building’s conference room. After that, participants could choose from a selection of healthier beers and socialize.
“We did Mic Ultra, a cider beer and a gluten-free beer,” Schauer said. “It’s all about moderation.”
If this looks like your style of fitness, we agree and are planning more opportunities. We’re holding a wine and yoga event in September.
“Our approach to employee wellness is to make it as approachable and accessible as we can,” said Becky Mutziger, director of human resources for Lloyd. “I think we’re seeing through our participation rates that employees appreciate the options we’re providing and want to get involved.”
