Fortel always comes up with innovative ideas regarding their working environment. The management believes that the employees never feel pressured and that they enjoy their work even if it gets very hectic. It is possible only and if only they are provided with a fun environment in which they can relax for some time. Apart from so many other things which Fortel is doing in this regard, a smoothie bike ride is a new addition to offer a fun atmosphere for employees.
Well, we know that a smoothie bike is a motionless bike that is attached to a blender. As soon as you start hitting the paddle, the blender starts to blend ingredients present in it. When you are done with the paddling, the smoothie is ready for you to drink. All you have to do is to put in the ingredients that you like, fruits, juices, or vegetables, and as a result, have your healthy smoothie with exercise for a few minutes.
Now keeping in mind, the concept of smoothie bike, and the hectic working routine of employees, Fortel has introduced this fun activity. This helps the employee divert attention while working and at the same time help the stay active during the working hours. Smoothie will help them recharge their inner energy and boost the ability to work even better.
This is how smoothie bikes are working as a fun factor for Fortel employees, and that is such an amazing initiative.
The benefits of smoothie bikes are not only that they help in making a smoothie and staying active, but there are so many others too. Here we will discuss a few more advantages of this activity for the employees of Fortel.
Smoothie bike is helping employee’s workout and develop better fitness of the cardiovascular system.
Muscle strength, endurance in whole body and flexibility also increase because it is a complete exercise.
Mobility of the joints, especially of legs, improves a lot with time as the employees keep on doing it every day.
Body fat level also reduces greatly because by doing this exercise, the whole-body engages in work and burns the fat in it.
Strength in the bones also develops due to this exercise, and along with this the smoothie has so many nutrients and milk or yogurt in it also adds to the strength.
Prevention from many diseases that arise due to long hours of sitting can also be avoided.
