We Love Nurses!
For industries with aging employees, such as nursing, the goal of a healthy workforce may be even more important to mitigate health changes associated with aging and to help nurses retain their ability to manage the physical demands of caring for patients. The average age of a nurse in the US is nearing 50 years (American Nursing 2011). Trusted professionals such as nurses have a distinct opportunity to educate not only patients, but also each other, about healthy lifestyle choices that incorporate a balance of exercise and proper nutrition.
At the regional nursing convention I had the chance to teach more than 200 nurses how to SpinGym (especially wonderful as my daughter Makenna helped as well)
The response was extraordinary and many plan to incorporate the workout into their daily routine and for patients that can handle it as well — a win / win all round!
