The BBG opened its renovated Health and Wellness Program on January 23, with a fitness center open house designed to encourage employees to start the New Year off with fresh commitments to fitness and health.
New fitness equipment has been purchased and installed, including a weight machine, elliptical machine, treadmill, and recumbent and upright bicycles. Instructions for fitness equipment, heart rate charts and other information is posted for easy reference.
As part of the open house, BBG employees were invited to tour the facility, try out the exercise equipment and participate in classes including zumba, meditation, line dancing and hand dancing. Representatives from the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition and the Washington Area Bicyclist Association attended to provide information and wellness resources. Also to be offered are classes in kick boxing, yoga, stress management and nutrition.
