Employees challenged to “Get Up & Go!” for healthy hearts
The Orthopaedic Institute launched its next installment of the third-quarter wellness opportunity for employees in August. Employees are gearing up for TOI “Get Up & Go!”, a condensed and modified version designed by TOI’s Joyce Shahboz, of the “Couch-to-5k” running program. The program will include:
- A full, six-week calendar, of suggested daily workouts designed for ALL fitness levels! Click below:
- Custom fitness recommendations and tips from one of TOI’s physical therapists
- A weekly fitness “Fun Fact”
- Motivational quotes
- Healthy weekend recipes
The program officially kicked off on August 15 and will run until September 23. The first week focused on getting started and featured recommendations for beginning the new program.
In addition, TOI “Get Up & Go!” is designed to lead into a culminating event at the end of the program.
TOI is proud to announce that it is a sponsor of the 2011 Alachua County Heart Walk- benefitting the American Heart Association’s Start! Heart Walk fundraising event. This is the American Heart Association’s premier event that brings communities together to raise funds and celebrate progress in the fight against cardiovascular diseases.
In conjunction with our sponsorship of the event, TOI has formed a walking team to participate in the event itself, TOI “Heart Throbs.” We are looking forward to a great turnout at the Heart Walk this year and encourage all TOI employees to participate in order to promote our core value of Improving Lives- Everyday.
