Fit-Friendly Southwest Florida
In response to concerns about the rising level of obesity, heart disease and diabetes, the Fit-Friendly Coalition of Southwest Florida is teaming up with area organizations and businesses. The goal is to offer education and awareness about healthy lifestyles through programs that encourage physical activity and smart food choices.

Start! Fit-Friendly Companies is a national program that annually recognizes companies for promoting physical activity and health in the workplace. Worksite wellness programs can help people be more aware of the major risk factors heart disease that they can modify and potentially change – smoking, being overweight, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes.

According to the Fit-Friendly Coalition, it is estimated that companies can save up to $15 for every $1 spent on health and wellness within 12 to18 months of implementing a worksite wellness program. Each employee who works to lower their risk status and maintains it can save the company an estimated $53 per year.

For more information about Fit-Friendly Southwest Florida, please call the Lee County Injury Prevention Coalition speaker’s bureau at 239-330-2250. There is no charge for this community service.
