Proven Benefits to Employees and Employers
As an employer, it is easy to be frustrated with the skyrocketing costs for medical coverage, particularly since it is estimated that 80% of disease is preventable. Nutrition in Motion’s Worksite Wellness Programs focus on a claims prevention approach—helping to prevent lifestyle based illnesses, while also helping to mitigate the effect of other illnesses, through nutrition and exercise-based solutions. We encourage, educate, and support your employees and, by extension their dependents, to make healthy nutrition, exercise and lifestyle choices. These learned skills help to improve quality of life, increase productivity, and reduce medical intervention. The average American adult spends a great proportion of their waking hours at work. Providing education and supporting healthy lifestyle choices in the workplace can create an environment for positive change and increase opportunities for long term success!

What Others Say about Our Worksite Wellness Programs
Thank you for your commitment to the program and always giving 110%
The program implementation was professional and adapted to our company’s needs. The handouts enhanced the program tremendously and, because Nutrition in Motion provided the binder for the handouts, we each now have a reference book to refer to as needed. I would highly recommend to any company to use Nutrition in Motion as part of their wellness program. Kudos to Nutrition in Motion!
I would like to personally thank you so much for setting up this program for us it was very successful and everyone that participated was very happy with it. It has changed a lot of our perspective on what we provide to our employees for food. Traci was awesome and everyone loved her, she has unlimited knowledge and was able to really help a lot of our employees with issues that they had.
I am writing to let you know what a pleasure it has been working with Laura the past few months. She did a great job with our Holiday Challenge – everyone who participated loved her! Also, I was quite impressed with the posters she created for the NHDOT to help out our folks who drive snow plows during the winter. I am sure they will go a long to helping them make better nutritional choices! We are currently discussing other Nutrition in Motion programs with which she may be able to help us in the coming months and I am looking forward to seeing their roll-out. I just wanted you to know that, from my perspective, you have an excellent employee!
I wanted to check in with you and share the good report from my doctor this month – My labs show a great improvement in my cholesterol , went from 251 down to 225 ( WITH NO MEDICATION) and I have been able to maintain my weight loss at 15 lbs and holding ! I have a follow-up in about 4 months and will continue to work on improving and am swimming 2-3 times per week. I definitely want to stick with the Nutrition program in 2019 and am hopeful and confident to reach my goals . This experience has been such an eye-opening and motivator for me. Thanks to you for your help and expertise!
After 2 weeks of Eat Well & Thrive at WGBH, we had to fully transition the program online in light of our new work from home policy. Employees have been enjoying virtual appointments with the dietitian and tuning into weekly virtual classes. Nutrition in Motion provided all the support that we needed to ensure that employees were able to make the virtual transition with ease. The convenience and flexibility of telehealth has ensured that all employees can participate no matter their schedule. We have found it to be especially beneficial to receive this support to better our health during this time of uncertainty!
