It’s nearing that time of year again, the time where New Year’s resolutions are fading and fading fast. It’s common knowledge that one of the top resolutions every year is to lose weight. Most people accomplish this by joining a gym January 1. However, most people lose interest because they aren’t losing inches. We get unmotivated, distracted, or life just gets in the way. This is not the case here at TNL, where we have an on-site work-out facility called “FitCorr”.
At FitCorr, any employee and their family may participate in Spin classes, Zumba classes, one-on-one workouts, and self- defense classes, which include Judo, Jujitsu, and Karate. The martial arts classes are taught in our own Dojo by our highly qualified fitness coach, Dutch. Dutch holds many Blackbelts in multiple Martial Arts disciplines. He is also a certified Spin instructor in the state of Michigan and has trained with several cyclists who have become champions. With Dutch’s array of classes and expertise, our team members are sure to feel the burn.
The gym is complete with the following equipment:
- Ab Wheels
- Balance Balls
- Dumbbells ranging from 5lbs. – 90lbs.
- Free Weights
- Medicine Balls
- Resistance Tubes
- The Perfect Pushup
- Rowing Machine
- Spin Bikes
- Boxing Gear
- Heavy Duty Punching Bags
- Power Slide System (Ice Skating Trainer)
- Skiing Trainer
- Cable Crossover
- Combination Squat Rack & Bench Press (incline, decline, and flat)
- Multi-Station Stack Weight Machine
- The Total Gym
- Flat Screen Televisions
At FitCorr, our mantra is, “Fit Mind, Fit Body, FitCorr.” At TNL, we have a unique opportunity to achieve both a fit mind and a fit body, at no cost to us. We understand that we have to begin somewhere, so why not begin at work. Regular exercise has proven to be beneficial for both mind and body. It helps reduce the risk of major health issues, while increasing longevity; it helps to achieve and maintain weight loss, and is even said to enhance moods—the benefits are endless. Exercising makes you look better and feel better, all while improving your health.
At TNL, we have seen a significant impact on our environment from using our on-site fitness center. Health, productivity, enthusiasm, energy and engagement have all increased which is reflected back into our work. I know that I will continue to attend my one-on-ones with Dutch, in hopes to be happier and healthier.
