Employee Wellness Program

EMPLOYEE IRONMAN SUMMER CHALLENGE
Don’t let the hustle and bustle of the summer months deter you from working out. The Lodge fitness and wellness team have developed this 30-day challenge to assist all part-time and full-time Des Peres employees with sticking to your exercise regimen. Based upon the ultra endurance IRONMAN Triathlons, this challenge requires you to swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles and run 26.2 miles! Have no fear; you have 30 days to accomplish it! Employee participants can use the fitness center, spinning classes, the indoor and outdoor aquatic centers. Not a great swimmer? You can accumulate your swimming miles by water walking. A conversion chart will be provided upon registration. Participants will receive tracking sheets along with directions for the challenge. To assist you in staying on track, we will have weekly check-ins, which will require the participants to turn in their mileage. If you meet the weekly goal, small incentive prizes will be awarded. All participants that meet the challenge will get a T-shirt. Thank you to our Sponsor, Thrivent Financial.

BENEFITS OF ANNUAL WELLNESS EXAMS
For most people, annual physicals have been replaced by periodic wellness exams based on age and general health. While it may be tempting to think of these visits as optional, they provide a unique opportunity for exchanging vital information with your doctor. A physical exam gives your doctor a basis for comparison as your physical
condition changes with age – and it gives you the chance to ask questions and build a relationship with your doctor.

During your checkup, you should expect both conversational probing and physical screenings for various conditions, as well as more general tests for body mass index (MBI) and to spot hearing loss or visual impairment. Together, these screenings represent a shift in focus from early diagnosis to prevention. read more and review wellness calendar
