Yes, there are wellness benefits through the company and incentives through our health insurance. We get a reimbursement of up to $30 per month for a gym membership or weight loss service (WW or JC).

Sort of...the flu shot is on site every year, they bring a Mamogram Truck every year on site, you have to make an appointment, but you can just leave the office for 15-30 minutes, get your mamo and go back to work. We have free use of the gym and pool on site. As well, we have free use of the health center. I work at a local University so we have use of the things that are here for the students.

I have no idea. I guess I'll have to check.

Consistency is key. But moderation is up there.

for the first time I did all the screenings to qualify for discounts AND we get a discount if we have a gym membership (I do).

that's a savings of $35/mo on my health insurance cost emoticon

Yes, we are reimbursed up to $300 for joining a weight loss program, taking martial arts/dance/yoga classes or signing up with a regular gym.

My company also has a couple fitness instructors who teach a lunch time
boot camp for employees. We don't have a gym, wish we did.

The company I work for is very health conscious.

Yes, we get a $200 annual reimbursement for gym memberships, exercise equipment, etc. We can enter steps or sync fitness trackers to a system that will pay out $20 amounts to your HSA account when you hit certain milestones. They also run a "get active" campaign every summer and you can pick a prize if you complete it.

My company is very wellness-focused.

Yes. My employer is actually doing a big push for employee wellness this year. I'm actually not sure what all it entails, though, because I don't have a gym membership and all that. It did mean my yearly physical was free, though!

My employer has offered various weight loss things. The last one I tried I hated. Their website was clunky and required weekly online meetings. There is also a Registered Dietitian, with whom I met for several weeks. She was nice but my body refuses to lose weight and I was sick of wasting time. My insurance does not cover registered dietitians or nutrition counseling as I am not diabetic. There is an onsite gym with trainers and classes but I work from home.

DH does, and I also benefit as his spouse.

Even if your employer does not have it spelled out, most insurance plans allow your doctor to refer you to a registered dietitian.

Do you have employee benefits that cover a gym membership or a weight loss program?
