Companies Reap the Benefits of a Healthier Workforce

Heather Stewart

Do you have a fitness goal?

My goals are simple: break a sweat daily and keep a long-term perspective.  I’m not striving for a particular weight or bicep size.

 

Have you always been dedicated to physical fitness

I’ve never really been a superstar at any given sport, but I’m usually good enough to be competitive. My motivation for getting into shape and staying there are my family and personal health. This is much easier because Jocelyn (my wife) and my employer provide support to help me reach this goal!

How has physical fitness impacted your life?

It helps me enjoy my relationships more. It improves my capacity to think and create, to deliver on deadlines. It supports my capacity to say “no” when there is something hard to let go of and to pounce on an opportunity when they appear. It affords me the ability to be nimble and quick when needed…Without good health we don’t really get to enjoy life. Without it we can’t play in the game.

 

What does your fitness regimen consist of?

I work out about 12 hours a week. I pay attention to nutrition, rest, recovery sessions, body-work, sleep and body-mind-soul integration. My secret weapon is Rob Maximums MacDonald, former MMA fighter. He directs my exercise program.

 

How has fitness improved your life?

Without good health we don’t really get to enjoy life. Without it we can’t play in the game.

 

What is your top fitness goal?

I want to be fit enough to pick up and complete a sprint triathlon at any given moment and not have to pay for it then or later.

 

What advice would you offer someone who can’t find the motivation to get off the couch?

Start moving and start small, truly just start standing more and sitting less. Then add walking. Walking is completely underrated. Just get moving and get some traction.
