Virtual Fitness Program Extended Through October

CommonSpirit Health is extending its virtual fitness program through October. Since its launch in May, this program has received great reviews from employees.

In fact, based on feedback from all of you, we’ve made an adjustment to the class schedule. The Thursday Fun Flow Yoga class has been replaced with a new 45-minute Restorative Yoga class on Saturdays at 11am starting August 7.

We hope you’re able to participate in this new offering. Encourage your coworkers to join in on the fun, too! We will continue to evaluate our class offerings and adapt the schedule to meet your needs better. See the new schedule starting August 2 here.

Don’t forget, we are monitoring participation so take a class to ensure your favorite will stay in rotation.

There are many classes to explore
The virtual fitness program offers many fitness classes to choose from, including Stretch & De-stress on Tuesdays at 10:30am and Fun Bootcamp on Wednesdays at 7pm. Learn more about the instructors and what they teach here.

Here’s what your colleagues are saying

“I sit all day so these classes help keep me active. I prefer group workouts as they keep me motivated and accountable. The classes are good for our physical as well as mental health.”
– Lilia Cypert, Patient Registration, Radiation Oncology Department

“In the past couple of years I have been struggling with my overall health and fitness like never before. Exercise has been especially difficult for me as I suffer from asthma and have some mobility challenges that make walking difficult. I have been participating in the Tuesday Stretch and De-stress class since it started in May. I have difficulties getting up from the floor, so I am using the modified version from a chair. Even just the deep breathing practiced in the class is helping with my asthma.”
– Debbie Anderson, Clinical Applications FSI Solutions, Analyst
