The Wynyard Generator team have been training with FAT on a regular basis for a while now, so we asked Grace to share how & why they integrated FAT into their workplace wellness programme. Read about the benefits the team gets from training together; advice for other companies wanting to implement FAT in the workplace, and Grace's vision for a healthy & fulfilling work environment.
What is your role within the Generator Team?
Member concierge at Generator - Madden street.
How did your company hear about FAT? What has been your / your teams’ experience with FAT thus far?
FAT has been collaborating with Precinct and Generator for a few years now. They have recently, as of 2023, booked the Annex every other week. Generator has offered them free venue hire for free FAT classes as part of our community engagement.
If you could highlight three main benefits you and your colleagues get from your FAT sessions, what would they be?
- Fun HIIT classes with the amazing FAT team
- Social experience. Our members get to interact with each other and get to see their colleagues outside of work
- The benefit of waking up early and starting your morning on a great note.
What advice would you give other companies thinking of getting FAT on board?
We would say to other companies, that this is a great way for your team to bond and an amazing way to incorporate wellness into their weekly routine.
What else does your employee wellness program involve?
Our company holds wellness seminars once a month as well as H&S chats with our onsite team. We also host community events every fortnight that our team love to take part in.
In your ideal world, what does wellness in the workplace look like?
It would look like a 4 day working week ;) that includes our workspace being a sanctuary for our staff and members, and of course the opportunity to enhance their physical and mental wellbeing through FAT.
