Participant Feedback on Excel Body Fitness Corporate Wellness Programs

“I’m enjoying the classes very much. I’m impressed by the teachers that I’ve had so far. They are very open and helpful… Overall I’m very pleased.”

“It {Chair Massage} was fantastic. So many compliments as usual. I had a really stiff neck before my massage and now it is so much better.”

“This was the end of my first week as a member and I attended three classes, hoping for a fourth today. So far, the classes have been fabulous. Hard for me to admit since I was very committed to IBT Fitness. Nonetheless, the instructors have been really good and the schedule looks great too.”

“I must say I did my first Pilates/core etc. class and it was better than I expected! LOVED the instructor. (I apologize for not remembering her name!) I think you have a terrific group of people!”

“I really enjoyed the first week of class and am planning to go again here in about an hour. I like best the variety of moves that the instructors gave and how they show us different levels for each move – easier to harder. See you soon!”

“I attended 3 classes last week: Pilates/Core, Total Body Circuit and Strictly Power. It’s all very exciting and everyone has been excellent. I took the Muscle Cut today and thoroughly enjoyed it with Tricia.”

“Thank you for everything you do and I really appreciate your smiles and friendliness and professionalism.”


Evidence for Corporate Wellness Programs

According to the Harvard Business Review:

“Wellness programs have often been viewed as a nice extra, not a strategic imperative. Newer evidence tells a different story. With tax incentives and grants available under recent federal health care legislation, U.S. companies can use wellness programs to chip away at their enormous health care costs, which are only rising with an aging workforce.

Government incentives or not, healthy employees cost you less. Doctors Richard Milani and Carl Lavie demonstrated that point by studying, at a single employer, a random sample of 185 workers and their spouses. The participants were not heart patients, but they received cardiac rehabilitation and exercise training from an expert team. Of those classified as high risk when the study started (according to body fat, blood pressure, anxiety, and other measures), 57% were converted to low-risk status by the end of the six-month program. Furthermore, medical claim costs had declined by $1,421 per participant, compared with those from the previous year. A control group showed no such improvements. The bottom line: Every dollar invested in the intervention yielded $6 in health care savings.


57% of people with high health risk reached low-risk status by completing a worksite exercise program.

Return on Investment for Employee Wellness Programs

We’ve found similar results in our own experience. In 2001 MD Anderson Cancer Center created a workers’ compensation and injury care unit within its employee health and well-being department, staffed by a physician and a nurse case manager. Within six years, lost work days declined by 80% and modified-duty days by 64%. Cost savings, calculated by multiplying the reduction in lost work days by average pay rates, totaled $1.5 million; workers’ comp insurance premiums declined by 50%.

4% is the voluntary turnover rate at SAS Institute, thanks in part to a highly effective employee wellness program.

Wellness Programs Increase Employee Satisfaction

What’s more, healthy employees stay with your company. A study by Towers Watson and the National Business Group on Health shows that organizations with highly effective wellness programs report significantly lower voluntary attrition than do those whose programs have low effectiveness (9% vs. 15%). At the software firm SAS Institute, voluntary turnover is just 4%, thanks in part to such a program; at the Biltmore tourism enterprise, the rate was 9% in 2009, down from 19% in 2005. According to Vicki Banks, Biltmore’s director of benefits and compensation, “Employees who participate in our wellness programs do not leave.” Nelnet, an education finance firm, asks departing employees in exit interviews what they will miss most. The number one answer: the wellness program.

To understand the business case for investing in employee health, we examined existing research and then studied 10 organizations, across a variety of industries, whose wellness programs have systematically achieved measurable results. In group and individual interviews, we met with about 300 people, including many CEOs and CFOs. We asked about what works, what doesn’t, and what overall impact the program had on the organization. Using our findings, we’ve identified six essential pillars of a successful, strategically integrated wellness program, regardless of an organization’s size. Passes to fitness clubs and nutrition information in the cafeteria are not enough, as you’ll see.”
