In the next edition of the Corporate Wellness Life series, we travel!
(Part 1: Event Planning)
A few of us headed up to the West Chester, PA area earlier this week to be onsite for Biometric Screenings*. The coaches (Jared & I) act as Health Educators, while the Program Manager (PM) and PM Assistant make sure everything runs smoothly. We’ve been with this particular client for a few years now, and love being there in person to host and execute the screenings!
*We do a ton of these in the Fall! It’s our busiest season, without question.
Monday morning was spent on the road, landing us at our destination in time for a late lunch (Chipotle, Round 1) and casual afternoon of catching up on some work. The TV-stand / dresser happened to be the perfect height for some standing action (see left).
We eventually headed out to dinner, checking out the local Bonefish Grill. I’ve heard a lot about these restaurants, but had yet to try one. Two thumbs up from this crew! We loved the variety of options, tasty dishes and kid-friendly atmosphere. Some Penn-State friends of mine were able to join us, with their adorable 6-month old in tow. Win!
Tuesday: Bring on Biometrics!
Jared and I both do Wellness Coaching for this client, so we took the opportunity to be onsite for the Screenings. We got to meet some of the people we work with, face-to-face, and also help them check in on some wellness goals. The signage and complimentary Screening Staff refreshments weren’t too bad, either…
We had a busy day! The 9-4 hours flew by, leaving us ready to explore the area and get some fresh air. Per a recommendation, we headed over to the downtown West Chester area (hello, old-town charm!) and right into the Iron Hill Brewery.
This place gets two thumbs-up from hungry WCS’ers for their free beer-sampling policy, sweet potato fries, fresh guacamole and healthy entrée options!
Wednesday: Forging on!
I had thoughts of going for a run, but there were no sidewalks near us and Jared’s description of the hotel gym (i.e. breaking my no-treadmill streak!) was far less than stellar.
Make-shift hotel workout? No problem. Grab a towel and get to it!
Safe to say this was effective, as I’m still a little bit sore two days later. Mission accomplished! Next mission: more frequent make-shift at-home strength routines.
After our second session on Wednesday morning, we hit the road and checked another Chipotle stop off the list (options were a bit limited. See also: we heart Chipotle)!
Do you travel for work?
What’s your favorite way to stay fit & keep healthy habits in tow?
I’m lucky to travel with a crew that shares my priorities – tasty, healthy food and a sweat-session or two!
