Workplace Wellness

Studies show that every dollar spent on a workplace wellness program generates three dollars in savings.

An effective workplace wellness program can reduce overall health care costs and improve productivity and morale.

Take advantage of GDI's Exclusive Wellness Lunch Program. GDI will at their cost bring in a personal trainer and wellness coach. While your employees enjoy their healthy lunch, our trainer will discuss diet and exercise.

Meet Lisa Short: GDI's Exclusive Workplace Wellness Coach!

Work Place WellnessGDI chose to work with Lisa because she has a clear and simple philosophy: When you maintain a healthy body, you are supporting a healthy mind, which leads to increased confidence at work and a happier personal lifestyle.

Her goal is to empower clients to take control of their daily health practices, manage their stress and find a balance in overall well being. Her role is to educate, support and supply the safe and proper structure that enables her clients to reach their personal goals.

Lisa earned her Bachelor of Arts in Physical Education with a concentration in Health and Wellness from CSU Stanislaus.

She has built a solid reputation for quality, safety and genuine one-on-one care by focusing on individualized attention in personal training. Her services include personal training, group training, senior programs, movement rehab programs, nutrition education, behavior change programs, and online health and lifestyle coaching.

Wellness coaching begins with an individual assessment. Next, a customized exercise and nutrition program targets the client's identified goals such as increasing self-esteem; improving overall health and body movement; increasing physical and mental strength; and the prevention of injury or disease. Lisa uses corrective exercise and movement patterns that strengthen, balance, stabilize and mobilize the entire body as a whole. If fat loss is the goal, consistent exercise will be coupled with nutrition awareness and positive lifestyle changes.

She is committed to helping all clients improve their mobility to better perform daily tasks, prevent injury, reduce pain, increase endurance, increase overall energy, and promote longevity. Regardless of the physical fitness level of each client, Lisa maintains high standards of safety while keeping exercise fun and exciting.
