“We envision a world in which all children can pursue a quality education, reach their full potential and contribute to their community and the world. To achieve this goal, we focus on two areas where we believe we can have the greatest impact: literacy and gender equality in education. We work in collaboration with communities and local governments across Asia and Africa to develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children, and support girls to complete secondary school with the life skills they’ll need to succeed in school and beyond.”

“We were having a bit of a problem getting people into the fitness/preventative side of the health equation.”
It’s a common dilemma. Calgary-based companies frequently want to employ a corporate health program, but have run into roadblocks with their past efforts. Even if you’ve historically been unable to get buy-in from your staff, the Corporate FitMethod can work for you.
This clear, well-defined and proven process is 100% customized to meet the needs — and desires — of your team. Because it’s easy, fun and it delivers immediately noticeable results, the Corporate FitMethod regularly brings close to 100% voluntary participation.
With a nutrition, exercise and healthy-body focus, the Corporate FitMethod takes your entire staff through three vital phases:
1. Ignite – A risk-free way to pique employee interest and gauge their willingness to participate.
2. Transform – A two-phase program of customizable length geared toward progressing your people through the fastest and most effective ways to lose weight and get healthy for life. Choose from 6 to 18 months.
Phase 1 –Nutrition – Individual assessments are conducted onsite that allow us to develop personalized nutrition, cardio & healthy-body programs for each employee. Accountability and reassessments are included to show results.
Phase 2 – Exercise – While continuing to adhere to their individual nutrition plans, your group will move into a second phase that focuses on exercise & fitness. Just as with the nutrition phase, each person will be assessed and given a customized exercise plan developed just for them. Accountability and reassessments are included to show results.
3. Cultivate – Ongoing support and accountability in the areas of exercise, nutrition and habit change are provided to cultivate and engrain your staff’s new lifestyles.
