Salubria Health Workshop
is a unique, fun, and team-based approach to promote the benefits of healthy living,through a two part workshop. The workshop will improve employee health awareness - leading to better decision-making around lifestyle choices, and will highlight the important link between making healthy choices and illness prevention.
The workshop involves 2 Parts:
Part 1. Playing "Salubria The Health Game" – participants are divided into teams, and learn through play - a proven and very effective way to learn. (Approx 30-45 mins).
Part 2. A simple, equipment-free ‘7 Minute Workout’ - demonstrated and led by by a fitness instructor. This all-round workout addresses the most common excuse for not exercising - lack of time! (Approx 20 - 25 mins)
Total Workshop duration will not exceed 90 minutes.
Participants learn how to prevent lifestyle diseases - like heart disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity, and some common cancers through powerful health messages in Salubria The Health Game - a game scientifically proven to positively affect behaviour change and validated by professionals in their respective disciplines. In addition, participants will learn how to boost energy, improve fitness, increase bone strength, experience greater flexibility and agility and be less prone to accidents, helping to reduce sick days and absenteeism.
