Other than the obvious health benefits, how has being fit improved your life?
Trying to maintain fitness is difficult but rewarding. It provides me with more energy to keep up with my two young children, ages 2 and 5. They certainly enjoy a father who can chase them around the house.
How does personal fitness affect your work life?
Personal fitness provides me with the high level of energy necessary to contribute to the growth of our business.
Do you have a corporate health or wellness initiative?
What health/wellness organizations do you contract with, if any?
How does fitness or wellness affect your overall organization?
I believe heathly/fit employees contribute a lot to the energy of an organization and it helps lower health care costs.
What advice do you have for other executives interested in starting either a personal fitness plan or corporate wellness initiative?
Just do what you can without making execuses. I am very time constrained like everyone else in business. However, I make it a requirement to fit in my workouts around my schedule which frequently means getting up very early in the morning. Even if you cannot committ to 3-4 days a week, 1-2 days working out is better than nothing. Every little bit helps.
