First. Yes--discount fitness classes, prizes, etc

We ought to be mature enough to pursue a healthy lifestyle on our own without an employer having to encourage us to do so. Eat right, do some walking or treadmill work, whatever. It's not that hard. Just quit being so d... lazy. Preaching to myself as well.

Mine offered a discount on employee memberships at a local gym years ago. It was discontinued since no one took advantage of it as it would have interferred with their drug usage and hangovers. Bunch of maroons.

It's smart for employers to offer such programs, It cuts down on health related absenteeism and reduces premiums for health plans by preventing illness.

There wasn't an option for "Yes & No" - Company I work for has facilities in 2 places - the main facility is located in a town that has a Fitness Center so the employees get a discount there if they use it at least XX number of times per month. At the secondary facility, in the smaller town where I am, there is no such type of facility, so we don't have that option. So when the weather is nice, I often walk the mile to work, walk home at lunch, eat a quick bite, walk back then walk home after work. Saves on short trips of gas, too!

then they order us pizza by the pound for a reward; lol. and if it's not pizza, it's doughnuts, candybars, or some other unhealthy snack. I know it's my choice to eat or not to eat(i usually don't), but just the offer of such when the words printed on the message board always relate to safety and health.

We have two on-site gyms with aerobics classes, frequent on-site health screenings, a tobacco cessation program, an EAP program, a workplace ergonomics program, on-site massage, on-site first aid and CPR classes, a weight loss program, a walking program, a cycling club, a Jazzercize club, a Karate club, a running club... and I don't take advantage of any of them.
