GOALS Employers spend more than $8500 per active employee on health care coverage (National Business Group on Health, 2011) Contributions to health care costs have increased 45% for employees and 36% for employers in the past 5 years (Kaiser Family

Foundation, 2012) An estimated 75% of total spending is for chronic conditions. Just four health risks (tobacco use, poor nutrition, lack of physical activity,WHY and excessive alcohol use), are FITNESS MATTERS responsible for much of this chronic disease burden. (CDC, 2012)

In the U.S. only one in five adults meets the CDCs Guidelines for Physical Activity. The World Health Organization estimates that the number of clinically obese adults has more than doubled since 1980. Obese Americans spend 36% more on healthcare costs & 77% more on medications than their healthier counterparts (Brookings Institute) Add in stress, overwork and compassion fatigue
