WHY THE MOBILE FITNESS BIZ? - EMPLOYEE ENRICHMENT, FLEXIBILITY, PERFORMANCE !!!

Herzberg's theory concentrates on the importance of internal job factors as motivating forces for employees. He designed it to increase job enrichment for employees. Herzberg wanted to create the opportunity for employee's to take part in planning, performing, and evaluating their work. He suggested to do this by:[6]
  • Removing some of the control management has over employees and increasing the accountability and responsibility they have over their work. Which would in return increase employee autonomy, authority and freedom.
  • Creating complete and natural work units where is it possible. An example would be allowing employees to create a whole unit or section instead of only allowing them to create part of it.
  • Providing regular and continuous feedback on productivity and job performance directly to employees instead of through supervisors
  • Encouraging encouraging employees to take on new and challenging task and becoming experts at a task.

Anthocyanins

http://www.sharecare.com/question/what-health-benefits-purple-blue-foods


Purple and blue pigment-related flavonoid phytonutrients, referred to as anthocyanins such as those that yield color to blackberries, blueberries, plums, raisins, eggplant, purple cabbage and purple-fleshed potatoes have been shown to have health benefits.
Benefits from ingesting these blue and purplish pigmented foods that have been demonstrated include protection against liver injuries; significant reduction of blood pressure; improvement of eyesight; strong anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial activities; inhibition of mutations caused by mutagens from cooked food; and suppression of proliferation of human cancer cells. As with other phenolic compounds, anthocyanins are free radical scavengers-meaning they are antioxidants that protect against free radical damage. The consumption of anthocyanins may play a major role in preventing lifestyle-related diseases such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular and neurological diseases.

Change management involved in relating fitness oriented services to a broader group of
clients is a transformational change in employability, quality staffing and a developmental
change that was made to increase the number of clients served by the business, increasing
the services rendered beyond fitness towards more well-being and rehabilitative service
personnel with an emphasis on
• Skill variety
• Task identity
• Task significance
• Autonomy
The matrix organizational structure regarding top down management to a decentralized
management system is also a part of the transformational change and is necessary do to the
mobility and client services offered of which reliable management teams are utilized.
Working with Shaw Mobile Fitness, (http://shawmobilefitness.webs.com ,
http://shawmobilefitness.blogspot.com, concepts in fitness restructuring and services
provided a overall new concept in the vision behind these changes incorporating the
participation of fitness trainers, practitioners working in health related services, particularly
physically rehabilitative services while also acknowledging the trends towards onsite
physical fitness programs that cater fitness services away from a standard location. The
services also extended into philanthropy by providing services into rehabilitative and clients
who have impaired physical limitations that might otherwise reject the idea of committing to
a fitness program outside of their habitats or regimes.
The trends in fitness and wellness programs are incorporated in EAPs, employee assistance
programs and wellness programs, which are foreseen to be favorable for a large group of
corporate, business service providers who are investing in their human capital and employees
like the idea of the extension of services making this type of outsourcing an quality
investment, but not a service that has to be maintained by the company’s budget.
“What kinds of onsite wellness support do you recommend?
There are 3 basic categories of onsite wellness support:
• Onsite health coaches or wellness coordinators
• Onsite services, such as biometric screenings, health fairs, or clinics
• Onsite programs, such as classes, in-person health coaching, or wellness challenges.
Why is onsite wellness support important?
Putting a dedicated person or programs onsite can boost employees’ perception that
management cares about their health…Here are just a few benefits: Onsite healthcare professionals can maximize your teachable moments, intervening in
real time, when employees are thinking about their health. ß Onsite staff can track biometric numbers and user rates for fitness or clinic visits and use
that to help you deliver more timely and personalized health interventions.
ß On-the-ground staff can encourage healthy lifestyle choices by arming employees with
information and local support.
ß Knowledgeable local staff can guide employees to the right vendor partner and carrier
resources.

Management in the formation of the business structure is seen as an image of the change
manager as a coach, the changes implemented shape the organizational culture towards one
that is coactive, collaborative thus the role of being a coach assist lower level management
and practitioners, an empowering element with the organizational culture. As a coach, focus
on the vision, the expansion of services is one that provides continual support into realms
and capabilities other fitness program models are not regarded as in performance or services
extended. A new visionary image supported by continual coaching and empowerment in
practitioner services. The composition of transformational change, developmental change and
Type III Change, change takes place in the ideology of fitness programs or the expansion of
fitness programs which have been marketed as less personal, location oriented, for a select
group of consumers and limited in providing an communal goodwill outside of being a venue
to accommodate the guest with onsite limitations that do not extend beyond the gym, unless the
client can afford their personal trainer services
