Workplace wellness is a huge topic. With more and more hours sitting at a desk, the need for improving focus, energy, and overall health is ever-increasing.
Many startups and small businesses lose the benefit larger companies have of in-house fitness centers. Bringing classes to the office offers a great chance to improve health and get back to work refreshed and energized.
All that is needed is a space large enough for some jumping jacks or some mats-- be it a conference room or small office!

P.S. Love this article by the Harvard Business Review. In summation: "healthy employees cost you less".
-Pilates, Stretch & Breathe, and Wellness Talks have proven to be the most popular for a pre-work or midday break in companies. Employees can get exercise without much sweat in these classes, and/or they can nourish their brains learning about tips and tricks to become a healthier version of themselves in a wellness talk.
-Bootcamp and Barre are great options in the evenings for employees to let out stresses of the day and break a sweat before heading home.
-How do I schedule?
Reach out to Kate at kcherich at gmail.com and we can set up a phone or in-person meeting. You have the opportunity to schedule in eight-week intervals, choosing as many or as few classes and workshops as you would like.
-Why Pilates? Increase energy and brain function, do away with low back pain (top reason employees miss work in the USA), healthier, stronger employees. Improved mood, improved productivity, and much more.
-No shower? More focus on breath and stretching in the morning and afternoon classes has been popular at sites, where some even stay in their work clothes! After work = sweat it out.
-Timing? Before work, during lunch, end of the day….45 minutes, 60 minutes…everything is adjustable to work with your office culture.
-Do both men and women take these classes? Absolutely! I find the men are the most surprised at how good they feel after taking just a little bit of time in their day to breathe, stretch, and work some muscles they ‘didn’t know they had’!
-Levels? All levels welcomed. I have over a decade of experience teaching in corporations in NYC to a variety of levels in a single class and assure you I hold it in highest priority that every person feels comfortable and appropriately challenged.
