Marketplace West starts a movement
For those who have not had the pleasure to meet, I am Denise Hopps the new addition to the Marketplace West Management team.
I am a big believer in the philosophy that wellness equals happier staff, and happier staff equals a better work environment.
My goal is to help cultivate an environment of healthy choices here at Marketplace West and thanks to the FUN project we are off to a great start this year with wellness.
We had 18 faculty and staff sign up at Dixon or the Faculty Staff Fitness program through the FUN project. We were also able to get a Fusion Fitness class here at Marketplace West three days a week, through a partnership with the faculty fitness program.
This class was developed to meet the untraditional schedule of dining staff workers.
One of our staff members, Jill Petreny, asked the question, “Can we get a class at 3 p.m.?” She got a group together that wanted the class, coordinated the time and location with the faculty fitness group, and now we are on the road to a healthier year.
The class is open to everyone, and you can sign up on the Faculty and Fitness website. Come join us in our wellness movement!
