Wellness Program Highlights

Pro Athlete has 100% participation in both biometric screenings and our imPAct Wellness program. During a four-week challenge in 2018, our company lost 43% body fat and completed over 3,000 miles of cardio. Pro Athlete also completed over 4,000 workouts this year. Our population has zero employees in the high risk category and zero employees that use tobacco.

Most Proud of ...

Our company and program are starting to impact other businesses in the country. After giving 3,000 tours last year, our hope is that we can be a positive impact on other employers as they begin to better their wellness programs and culture. We are also upgrading our proven wellness application so we have the ability to share it with other companies.

“I'm proud that we have made health a fun thing for our employees and their families. So many people dread trying to get in shape or get healthy, but here - it's a way of life. It's just another part of your job. Think of how many people around the world want to lead a healthy life, but can't find the time because of kids' activities or they are too busy at work. It's hard, it's really hard. That's why we just believe in providing the tools to our employees and their families to set them up for success. We've essentially created a work environment that's fun and, in turn, tends to carry over into their home lives as well. No matter where you are in your health journey, it's important to know you’re not alone.”

From the moment an employee steps foot inside Pro Athlete, they are immersed with the fun and healthy culture. Before they know it, they start to experience victories with their health that propel them not only to a healthier lifestyle, but an excellent employee and leader in the company. The core value of getting and staying healthy is so strong here. We aren't just seeing weight loss - but a complete change physically, mentally, and nutritionally.”
