Physical activity in the workplace

Resources to help you create a more physically active workplace.

The Heart Foundation and active workplaces

The Heart Foundation sees the workplace as an important location for workers to be more physically active and reduce sitting. Workers can spend a large percentage of time at work so to exercise to, at or from the workplace is an excellent way to achieve enough activity for heart health benefits.

Resources and programs

 

MyMarathon 

MyMarathon is a great opportunity for workplaces to build motivation and improve workplace activity, as well as fundriase for the Heart Foundation. 

 

My health for life

As a member of the Healthier Queensland Alliance, the Heart Foundation is a proud supporter of the Queensland My health for life program.  The program offers a free lifestyle modification program to help employees reduce their risk of developing cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
