Personal Training for Your Staff

The Opportunity

A commitment to the health, fitness and wellbeing of your staff makes good business sense.

A comprehensive wellbeing strategy will not only help you to manage the indirect costs of poor health to your business but is also an opportunity to improve business performance.

A fit and healthy employee will:

  • Take fewer sick days
  • Be less at risk of developing musculoskeletal disorders, in particular back pain and repetitive strain injury
  • Be better able to manage pressure and avoid stress
  • Be more motivated and more productive at work.

How Healthy is Your Company?

By improving the health, fitness and wellbeing of your staff, you indirectly increase the performance of your company.

At Equilibrium we work with you, taking into account all aspects of your company, your company's needs and the main health related priorities to develop an Integrated Wellness Programme. Because every company is unique, so to is each programme. What may be the specific requirements of one company may be completely different to the next.

All of our Wellness Packages are designed to suit each individual company’s needs. By working closely with our clients, assessing needs, budgets and priorities, each Integrated Wellness Package compliments existing company policies and ethos.

  • Demonstrate a genuine concern for the wellbeing of your staff
  • Identify key performance factors, to increase overall staff productivity and performance
  • Develop strategies to improve overall performance of the company
  • Implement these strategies into the whole company, or even individual departments
  • Evaluate and analyse the success of the programme.

Company Wellness Assessment

How Healthy is Your Company?

Did you realise that by improving the health and wellbeing of your company’s most valuable asset, your employees, you could improve the overall productivity of your company by 12.5%? (NASA Research).

Through our Company Wellness Assessment you will gain an understanding of what factors contribute to one’s total wellbeing. By assessing these individual factors you can then begin to make changes to improve the overall health and performance of all of your staff.

Functional Training Studio -
Design and Implementation

We don’t do gyms!

We design and implement studios that work. What this means is that we don’t just fill a designated space with a whole lot of equipment and call it a gym. We hand select with you the best equipment based on your specific requirements and purpose for the training studio.

Functional exercise can be described as training for real life activities. This means that the benefits that are gained by training in this manner have a high degree of transfer to everyday activities that you perform.

It is a more three-dimensional form of training than the conventional resistance machines and therefore will utilize a lot more muscles in multiple planes of movement.

Therefore you will achieve greater results than just training on machines alone. This form of training is being used as a preventative measure for a large number of muscular-skeletal type injuries including back and neck pain.

What is a Functional Training Studio?

When designing a Functional Training Studio you need a balance between user-friendly equipment so that your clientele can just get on with their workout, and some specific functional equipment so that they can maximize the effectiveness of their training.



The studio would be designed to:

  • Maximise usage of space
  • Look less intimidating to your staff
  • Visually entice staff to take an interest and use the facilities
  • Be of a high technical quality to attract experienced gym users.

By assessing your individual requirements and specifications we will make recommendations and design a studio unique for you. We will look at all of your requirements for a training facility, including:

  • Available space
  • Number of people using the facility
  • Reason for implementing the studio (stress management, improved posture, decrease back pain, improved workplace performance or even a genuine concern for the wellbeing of your staff)
  • Overall budget.

Because every company is unique, so too is every Functional Training Facility.

We don’t employ Gym Instructors!

We employ specialists in all areas of the Wellness continuum. Staff are chosen for their passion and expertise in their chosen field. What this means is that you are receiving the care and attention that you really deserve. Whether this is through specific corrective exercise training, or a stress management type approach the best types of specialists are employed for your unique requirements.

On-Site Massage

Massage has long been used to relieve tired and aching muscles. It is also a fantastic way to combat stress and stress related symptoms.

Sitting in front of a computer for long periods of time encourages your head to fall forward, followed closely by your shoulders and results in a great deal of stress and tension through your neck and shoulder region.
