Corporate Wellness Program
The impact of health issues in our work environment can be detrimental to both the
employee and AHS. Significant health problems can affect productivity, work place
morale, and safety. These issues have far-reaching implications for the future stability
of both AHS and its employees.
AHS considers its employees not only a part of our future growth and stability,
so by offering a Employee Wellness and Corporate Health Challenge Programs (CHC)
we hope to help everyone on a pathway to better health and wellness.
- Employee Wellness Program – Monthly activities that
the Corporate Human Resources Department promote to raise health awareness. Activities
include, Clean off Your Desk Day, Wear Red Day for the American Heart Association,
and Lee Denim Days for Breast Cancer Awareness.
- Corporate Health Challenge Gold Program – An incentive
based 13 or 26 week program in which employees work out with a Stick with It Fitness
Trainers once a week, as well as have the opportunity to attend Monday Night Workouts
and Yoga Foundations Class. Employees participate in Biometric Testing and Functional
Movement Screens with the opportunity to win a cash incentive!
- Corporate Health Challenge Bronze Program – An incentive
based 26 week program in which employees log their nutrition, aerobic, and resistance
activities. Employee’s participant in a Pre and Post Test with the opportunity to

The program philosophy we have chosen to implement, which is designed by ChangeRx,
is based on the knowledge that most people require guidance in developing an understanding
of how to live a healthy and productive life. Our approach to providing this health
and lifestyle management guidance is based on a firm scientific footing, supported
by a realistic and balanced nutrition, conditioning, restorative, and accountability
methodology that has been proven over time with thousands of success stories.
The maturing process brings benefits and challenges. As we pursue our careers, complete
our education, and raise our families we somehow neglect exercise and nutrition.
Before you know it years slip by and we all have a few extra inches on our body
and we can’t move as quickly as we once did. We all plan to get back to a healthier
life style when we “get around to it.” Hopefully this program will inspire you to
get started and you will join me on a journey to improved health. I encourage and
challenge everyone to join me in this voluntary wellness program in the effort to
improve the quality of your health and well-being.
