Westfield Health staff get into gear with smoothie bike.
Westfield Health trialled an innovative new way of keeping fit and healthy on Friday when employees took turns on a ‘smoothie bike’.
The exercise bike was introduced to mark the end of our ‘Healthy Eating Week’, during which staff were encouraged to share inventive ways to eat and drink smarter. Daily tips were sent out, including healthy eating swaps, nutritious and tasty lunch ideas, and ways to keep hydrated.
The bike features a built-in blender, with riders adding their favourite fruits before pedalling long enough to create a nutritious smoothie.
Our Head of HR Development and Strategy Fiona Lowe said: “The news is full of stories about rising levels of obesity and the health problems related to inactivity.
“We're proud to be doing our bit to promote wellbeing activities within our own organisation and to help businesses to move health and wellbeing to the top of their agenda.
“At Westfield Health, we work hard to ensure our customers stay healthy, and we want to do the same for our employees too. This is a unique and creative way to keep fit and healthy, and it’s fun for our staff to see the fruits of their labour!”
