Advocate Fitness

Corporate Fitness Solutions

For businesses, Advocate Fitness, a division of Advocate Healthcare and Hospitals Corporation, promotes on-site employee wellness to prevent absences, and help reduce medical costs. We design and manage customized fitness facilities and wellness programs that meet the unique needs of your workforce. 

Fitness Center Design

Advocate Fitness center designs range from new facility construction to retro-fitting existing health and fitness facilities. Whatever the goal, our fitness professionals are able to create the center that best fits your needs.

The Process

In depth reviews and analysis are performed to provide insight into company goals and objectives. Reviews can include:

  • Healthcare claims analysis
  • Key Stakeholder Interviews
  • Site benchmarking
  • Employee focus groups
  • Employee interest surveys

Following a completed review, an aggregate report is generated which provides greater insight into your company’s fitness/wellness programming needs and direction. The report provides the blueprint needed to create the fitness center or wellness program to meet the company’s goals.

Customized Wellness Services

Advocate Fitness professionals provide education, information and resources on health/ fitness and wellness topics in areas of interest for you and your employees. 

Example programming includes:

  • Health risk assessments
  • Fitness and wellness lectures
  • Healthy lifestyle programming
  • Health fairs
  • Fitness awareness programs
  • Ergonomic assessments

All programming is provided on-site and staffed by one of our fitness or wellness professionals.

Health Fairs and Lectures

To keep your efforts fresh, exciting and to generate new membership, we will design, coordinate and facilitate health fairs and lectures at your facility using themes or topics of your choosing.

Health fairs are given daily at different Advocate locations and can be brought to your on-site location as well. Simple health fairs include a health questionnaire, blood glucose testing, height and weight assessments, an evaluation report and recommendations for follow up care.

Deluxe health fairs include the services offered above, along with displays and presentations from national vendors and services, such as the American Heart Association, American Diabetes Association, and Advocate nutrition personnel. Local area vendors can also be added to the health fair based on your request and approval.

Lifestyle Coaching

Today’s hectic pace is a major contributor to some of the health issues plaguing our society and workplaces today. Our lifestyle coaches are positioned to help clients deal with issues such as stress, smoking cessation, high blood pressure/diabetes management (disease management), goal setting and much more.

Ergonomic Assessment

Having trouble seeing your computer screen? Challenges with wrist pain? Neck or eye strain a problem? The problem may be right under your seat or at your desk. Advocate’s team of ergonomic specialists are here to help you find answers to these nagging issues and assist you in making the necessary adjustments to your office to put these issues to rest.
