Create some team-building fun. Release tension and solve problems. This interactive course is designed to help everyone focus on health and physical and psychological wellbeing as part of the everyday workplace. This can be done through stretching and exercises, healthy eating and also team and workplace strategies to encourage everyone to be healthy and achieve a good work/life balance.

Brittany, the Cutting Edge Personal Trainer, demonstrates some stretches for use in the office to help remove tension. The team is encouraged to discuss problem areas they have and together they work through stretch exercises with Brittany. Serena arrives and is concerned about the activities in terms of possible injuries and lawsuits. Brittany involves Serena and invites her to lie on the floor and do a ‘Birthday Stretch’, much to the amusement of others in the team. People have enjoyed the stretching exercises but Serena is really concerned about everyone getting back to work.
