Workshop: 10,000-step plan

What?

Adequate physical exercise keeps you healthy. A simple way to ensure that you get enough physical exercise on a daily basis is by walking more. Research has shown that adults should aim to walk 10,000 steps per day. That is why Mensura developed the 10,000-step plan – a workshop during which participants learn about the health benefits of walking 10,000 steps per day. They will also receive advice on how to achieve this goal.

Why?

Employers want their workers to be energetic and resilient. By encouraging them to get enough daily exercise, not just through motivation but by providing an actual plan with a specific target, you can help your employees accomplish this. And that is where the 10,000-step plan comes in.

Who?

Want to bring about a change in behaviour among your employees and help them establish a healthy, long-term exercise pattern? The 10,000-step plan has been successfully implemented across many organisations.

How?

The workshop will be delivered by an expert paramedic of Mensura:

  • How to develop a 10,000-step plan for your company?
  • What project materials should you use?

Workshop participants learn the following: 

  • What is the 10,000-step plan?
  • How often do you do physical exercise?
  • How to use the pedometer, the booklet and the tool for recording your steps?
  • How to incorporate physical exercise in your daily life?

You will have a follow-up meeting with our advisor to reflect on the following: 

  • How would you evaluate the project?
  • How to round up the project?
  • Is there a need for new initiatives?

Result

The 10,000-step plan will increase the resilience and vitality of your employees. They will feel better and be more active, resulting in greater productivity and commitment. Your company will be not just one, but ten thousand steps ahead.
