Spending long periods of work time sitting or standing in one position causes physical pain and muscle fatigue. Pain and fatigue can drastically reduce work performance. In today’s competitive business atmosphere, healthier employees are paramount to a company’s success.

Although progressive, smart employers are ergonomically improving work stations, changing the work area without correcting employees’ faulty body postures is like improving an old house without fixing the crumbling foundation.

The Productive Posture Series:

Begins with the basic workshop. The second part can be presented separately or in tandem with the basic workshop. The Second Series is designed to build and expand on the first workshop. By providing more partner participation and exercises using a styrofoam therapy roll and tubing individuals learn a new way to stretch and strengthen their bodies. The Productive Posture workshop is very flexible. Sessions typically range from one to up to two hours but can be shortened based on your industry and employee needs.
