Many of us at Muto - including our coaches - have a background in corporate office environments. We know first hand how important physical activity is for staying sane in this environment, but also how difficult it can be to juggle it amongst many competing priorities.
MUTO empowers your employees to lead healthier lives whilst improving your bottom line. There are so many benefits to physical activity not only for the individual, but the employer. Exercise can contribute to general good health and therefore to a healthy immune system. It may contribute even more directly by promoting good circulation, which allows the cells and substances of the immune system to move through the body freely and do their job efficiently. For the employer, this should pay off in less time taken off work sick.
But a more immediately observable benefit is the way that aerobic exercise can help mental alertness and performance, and in turn improve sleep - making for more productive employees.
Aerobic exercises, including jogging, swimming, cycling, walking, gardening, and dancing, have also been proved to reduce anxiety and depression. These improvements in mood are proposed to be caused by exercise-induced increase in blood circulation to the brain and by an influence on the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and, thus, on the physiological reactivity to stress. Whilst exercise is certainly not a cure all for preexisting mental health conditions, it can better equip your employees to deal with pressure.
