Healthy Weight Challenges

We create and deliver solutions to optimise the health & safety of people and organisations

Healthy Weight Challenge

Looking for an exciting new way to promote health & wellbeing in your workplace? Try our Healthy Weight Challenge! The prevalence of overweight and obesity in Australia is increasing and this has direct implications on workplace health & safety and workplace compensation schemes. Specifically, increased workplace absenteeism, lower productivity and work limitations.

Ethos Health can facilitate 6, 8, 10 or 12-week group based weight loss challenges designed to maximize the health of your team. The program uses the InBody bioelectrical impedance technology to measure body composition and can include several optional extras to tailor your challenge, motivate and engage your workforce to improve their health and in turn your business profits!

How the challenge works

  • Launch Presentation: Remote or onsite (45 minutes)

  • Initial (Inbody Body Composition) Scan: Conducted onsite (allow 10 minutes per person)

  • 6, 8, 10 or 12 weekly communication tools and fact sheets. Optional extras including meal plans, online nutrition risk assessments and materials

  • Rewards (Organised by site)

    Multiple categories including overall weight loss, percentage body fat loss, muscle gain and change in inbody score can be used on an individual and/or group basis to decide competition winners

Launch Presentation

Ethos Health can deliver a ‘Value of Health’ presentation to as many attendees as practicable. The presentation is used to launch the challenge and can be delivered to >100 participants at a time providing sufficient space and AV equipment is available. This interactive and engaging workshop will help attendees identify the benefits of improving their health, motivate them to take action, and to make lifestyle changes to meet your desired needs and a clear understanding of what changes you can make that fit with your needs.

InBody Composition Scan

InBody accurately and quickly measures body composition. Regardless of individual health status, it effectively captures the attention of participants and engages them in understanding the impact of their dietary and exercise habits.
