Sweaty Betty wins Britain's Healthiest Employees 2014!

posted on Monday, 21st July 2014 | find under Tamara, Fitness, Nutrition
Last year, Sweaty Betty was named Britain's Most Active Company. In 2014, the team has upped the fitness ante even further, so it was with great excitement that we collected the prize for Britain's Healthiest Employees (an award presented in association with PruHealth, Mercer and The Sunday Telegraph). 

Practising what we preach is at the core of all we do at Sweaty Betty. Walking the walk (or running to be more specific) is key for the team; finding inspiration and motivation in each other, from new 10K PBs and conquering a headstand in yoga, to crossing the finish line of your first triathlon

To support the team's personal training, the Sweaty Betty Support Office is a hub of exercising activity. Yoga, Cardio Pilates and run clubs are held weekly, with extra workouts from our library of online classes to Insanity DVDs and squat challenges frequently taking place in the on-site studio. Running social media campaigns such as #HealthieSelfie and spotlighting team workouts with weekly blogs on where we're training that week; even the summer parties have an air of friendly competition with sports day races such as the egg-and-spoon and relays. 

Outside of the office, everyone has their own interest in health and fitness. With a team full of yoga teachers, marathon-runners, competitive cyclists, Barry’s Bootcamp addicts, personal trainers, rock climbers and rowers, it was with great pride that Sweaty Betty scooped the prize for Britain’s Healthiest Employees 2014; proving to the world that #TeamSB well and truly practice what they preach...and do it in style.

As for in-store, each boutique plays host to at least two weekly workouts, such as Boxing Yoga, Body Blast and HIIT, available free of charge exclusively to SB customers and supported by a variety of online workouts.

I've been a Sweaty Betty customer for years & wish that way back when I was a retail manager, you'd been around then! I would have loved to have worked for you... Just shopping in your Selfridges Trafford Centre concession inspires me to stay fit & healthy just so that I can continue to look good in your beautiful workout clothes. I'm in my fabulous forties now & love trying new things to shake up my fitness routine. I've discovered a new love of cycling recently thanks to the enthusiasm of one of your team. Well done Sweaty Betty. You practise what you preach and inspire others to do so too! Well deserved accolade!

Dear Kieve, Thank you for your interesting in teaching yoga at Sweaty Betty. The best thing to do is head into the boutique in which you would like to teach and chat to the Store Manager about their current opportunities for club classes. Many thanks, Sweaty Betty
