Employees participate in life-changing Average2Awesome programme
Our Nottingham team are the latest team to complete the Average2Awesome (A2A) programme – a three-month life-changing employee health and fitness programme which Stepnell has been rolling out across its regional offices. Leading performance coach Rory Coleman, who has completed more than 1,000 marathons, was brought in to work with employees, helping them to boost their fitness levels and confidence.
Staff taking part in the programme had to commit to following a 12-week calorie-restricted diet and exercise programme incorporating a weekly 100,000-step challenge which helped them lose weight and transformed their attitudes to exercise. The A2A programme has proved transformational for our teams with astonishing results.
