Three elements of ActiV8
The goal of ActiV8
The goal of ActiV8 is to provide busy workers with healthy lifestyle options to improve their health, well-being and energy levels. Greater energy levels result in more alert and productive workers and therefore reduces the risk of workplace injury. The lifestyle options incorporates three main areas of our lives:
- Diet and nutrition
- Exercise and movement
- Safety and rest
ActiV8 provides a rating system so that users can easily follow the recommended healthy lifestyle plan. ActiV8 users can obtain a 100% healthy lifestyle rating each day by focusing on 3 key elements:
- Diet & Nutrition
- Safety & Rest
- Lifestyle & Exercise
Why does ActiV8 work?
ActiV8 encourages our metabolism to work faster and keeps us alert by encouraging adequate amounts of sleep and exercise. When a body consumes healthy food more regularly throughout the day, its metabolism rate increases and it burns fat faster. For that reason, ActiV8 recommends three healthy meals and three healthy snacks per day. Combine this with a simple daily 30 minute walk and sufficient sleep and you have a formula for health and vitality.
What impact will ActiV8 have?
ActiV8 will keep your workforce happier and healthier with a plan of delicious meals, healthy snacks, rest and body movement. It it proven that as employees become healthier absenteeism and work place injuries decrease.
Healthy Heart System
ActiV8 incorporates our Healthy Heart rating system based on guidelines set out by the National Heart Foundation (NHF). These guidelines have been developed to ensure people receive the best advice to prevent cardiovascular disease. The Healthy Heart rating system matches up each dish on the ActiV8 Healthy Lifestyle Plan with the NHF guidelines. For example, if a dish is within the parameters of the guidelines set out by the NHF, it will score a 5 on the Healthy Heart rating system. If one of the parameters is out by a predetermined margin, then it will score a 4 and so on. Only meals that score a 5 or 4 on the NHF Healthy Heart rating system are included as part of the ActiV8 Lifestyle Plan.
