Here at Growth Gurus we love a good day out of the office, especially when it combines two of our favorite things – health and fitness! When Profile Health and Fitness approached us to take part in a corporate health screen including a day at the gym and spa we jumped at the chance!
A Monday Morning at The Spa
We arrived at their headquarters in The Palace Hotel bright and early on a Monday morning with everyone in high spirits; you can’t really hate Mondays when you’ve got a spa day on the horizon!
The day started off with a health screen for every Guru in the team and we would be lying if we said that we weren’t just a little bit nervous to get our health tested. One by one we were sent for a lifestyle design consultation that included a whole suite of tests from blood pressure to body composition to dietary analysis. We’re so happy to reveal that every Guru is in great health and a big shout out goes to Jon-Paul (our web designer), who can be confirmed as the fittest employee at the office! However, as our health consultant informed us, health tests are all about measuring progress not current state, so we all signed up to be re-tested in 6 months time in order to make sure we are maintaining our healthy lifestyles.
Hit the Gym and Spa at Profile Health and Fitness
With our health checks done, we were all buzzing for a chance to hit the gym and spa. After a quick tour of the incredible facilities offered by Profile Health and Fitness, we decided to get a good workout under our belts before taking it easy in the spa. The gym boasted an impressive mix of equipment as well as ample space for various aerobic activities, and what’s even better is that queues to use the equipment were non-existent owing to the gym’s capped membership system.
Growth Gurus Board Meeting (in the Sauna)
After an intense workout we strolled into the spa with our bodies glistening like Greek gods. We decided to take a quick rinse in the spa’s glorious rain showers followed by a dip in the indoor pool. To say that this was a relaxing Monday would be an understatement, but that didn’t mean that it was an unproductive one. No matter the day and no matter the location, our clients are always at the forefront of our mind so it was no surprise that we quickly began to talk strategy while enjoying our swim. We decided to take advantage of the creative energy that was flowing and thus an impromptu board meeting was quickly set up in the sauna.
As the sweat began to pour so did some great ideas for our clients, making the informal board meeting a great success. It really is true what they say – a healthy body makes for a healthy mind!
A Productive Health-Focused Guru Day
With our health and spirits lifted we called an end to an amazing day with the Profile Health and Fitness team, and decided to head out for an equally healthy lunch before getting back to the office to implement some of the great ideas generated throughout the day!
We’d like to thank Paul from Profile Health and Fitness and also Vince from Malta Personal Training for such a great and productive day and we can’t wait to track our health progress again in 6 months time.
