Fitness pilots on track


Spending lunch-break and couch potato evenings with fast food and sprawling in the office chair during the day? If it were up to our „fitness pilots“, they would put an end to it soon. Last week, they took part in the second workshop of the project “fitness pilots” by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry Trier and the AOK Rhineland-Palatinate/Saarland (health insurance provider) concerning nutrition and fitness.

While the first workshop was about ergonomics at work and gentle exercises during breaks, the second workshop was about healthy nutrition. In the first part a nutritionist informed the participants about ingredients, calories, the food pyramid etc. as well as about nutritional diseases such as diabetes. In the second part the trainees could apply what they had learned and prepared different meals (spread, fitness salad, wholegrain waffles etc.). The result was a fantastical and healthy buffet (see photo).

Now they start into the active phase: Until the next date in September our trainees have to make up fitness project which they will realize in the Euro-BBW and then present at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Trier. It is the aim of the fitness pilots to become multipliers for a healthier lifestyle in their companies.
