iGlobalWellness helps staff get active for 2012 Olympics

For many this is the second week back at work after the New Year. For iGlobalWellness it is the second week of an Activity for All programme which aims to get more people moving as a result of the 2012 Olympics.1

iGlobalWellness offers health and fitness programmes that encourage employees to increase their daily activity. The programmes use more sophisticated technology than other pedometer-based schemes. Users wear an activity monitor which measures speed of movement and calories burned. Results are then uploaded wirelessly so progress can be tracked online.

This year iGlobalWellness is running a series of athletics-themed challenges inspired by the 2012 London Olympics.

iGlobalWellness offers its two main programmes – the competitive Stay Active Challenge and the individualised Personal Wellness Programme – to companies across the UK and in Europe. Since launching in 2008 iGW has staged five Stay Active Challenges and helped hundreds of employees increase their activity levels. Its clients include GlaxoSmithKline, customer loyalty specialists Affinion International, Cosmopolitan Housing Group in Liverpool, ferry operator DFDS Seaways and Sheffield University.

iGlobalWellness is a start-up company advised by Premier Rugby chief executive Mark McCafferty and former Olympic athlete David Moorcroft.
