Why Putting the Wag in Wellness is Way Better

We recently launched Best Friends for Fitness (BFF), a great way to achieve employee fitness goals with a furry friend and make a difference in the community. Briefly, employees and dogs (from local shelters) get to take each other out for a walk – and benefits accrue to both participants.

According to tons of studies, people who interact with dogs regularly realize genuine health benefits, from a lower incidence of medical problems to lower stress in general. The canine contingent, mean-while, stands a better chance of being adopted by a loving home. 

Best Friends for Fitness is based on a proven “four-legged” approach to corporate wellness activity success:

  • It’s customizable and easy to implement
  • It’s motivating, engaging – and fun!
  • It involves individual goal setting, tracking and measurement
  • It connects directly to worthy causes 

When clients enroll, they get a free app to help them, powered by WoofTrax; connection to a local animal shelter that will benefit from their walks; and an assigned account representative to assist with program implementation and management.

If this sounds like a doggone perfect fit for a client looking for a unique community program, contact us here to learn more.
