Employee Praise for Babson’s Wellness Programs
“I want to thank HR for launching the Masters Swim program. In the first few months I’ve lost a few pounds, feel great, and most mornings I’m at my desk by 8 a.m. ready to go and feeling no pressure to exercise during my lunch hour!”
“I want to thank the Wellness Team for bringing in such a great instructor for Boot Camp. He facilitates a safe, supportive, and yet challenging class, focuses on the individual needs and goals of each participant and encourages all of us to achieve our personal best!”
“I just wanted to take a moment to tell you how much I love the running program. I have been trying on my own to do the Couch to 5k program for five years now and have failed to complete it. This was the first time I was able to accomplish a life goal and I owe it all to the program and Babson. Without the instructor to coach me and Babson’s great employees to motivate me, this would not have happened. I have lost weight, am more confident in myself, and am happier to be around!”
