NUTRITION TOPS AGENDA FOR CVS INVERCLYDE
... as team aim for healthier working lives
Major changes introduced all in one go is never a good thing for building healthier lifestyles, according to Ross Davey, owner and head coach at Greenock-based CrossFit Caber.
It was part of his seminar on nutrition with the team at CVS Inverclyde, who are now working towards silver accreditation with Health Working Lives (HWL), an initiative that helps employers create a safer, healthier and more motivated workforce.
In his session with CVS Inverclyde, Ross talked about the negative connotations of the word 'diet' and how many people focus on scale weight instead of reducing body fat. Taking the team through the natural balance of proteins, carbohydrates and fats in good nutrition and the best food sources, he focused on achieving lasting, positive habits, which can prevent boredom, prevent cravings and achieve reduced body fat.
"Following the HWL principle that a healthier workforce really does make for a healthier business, we have been working with our team over the past year to achieve bronze accreditation before focusing on silver this year," said Ian Bruce, Executive Officer, CVS Inverclyde.
"As part of the HWL criteria to promote the benefits of a balanced diet and facilitate opportunities for employees to eat more healthily, Ross delivered an informative, yet informal and hugely enjoyable session on nutrition. We are grateful for his support, which he provided for free through our membership of Greenock Chamber of Commerce."
The nutrition seminar is part of a wide variety of sessions being covered by the team including topics ranging from smoking, alcohol and drug awareness to stroke awareness training
HWL works with all kinds of businesses free of charge, offering practical information and advice to help improve health and safety and the wellbeing of everyone at work. Find out more about CrossFit Caber at: www.crossfitcaber.co.uk.
