AEROBICS in the boardroom and table-tennis in the office are just two of the ideas suggested by a new scheme from Huntingdonshire District Council.
AEROBICS in the boardroom and table-tennis in the office are just two of the ideas suggested by a new scheme from Huntingdonshire District Council, aimed at getting workforces more active.
TimeOut is a new initiative being offered to businesses across Huntingdonshire to improving the health and fitness of their employees.
The sport and active lifestyles team at HDC will offer support to businesses to help them promote and deliver activities to employees either before, during or after working hours, and will provide what they want at a time that suits them.
Other active ideas include short tennis on grassy areas, or even just regular planned walks around the workplace.
