The holiday season means different things to different people. For so many of us, giving is the order of the day. We are running around town trying to find the perfect gift for those on our list. We have been taught that giving is better than receiving, and we find true pleasure in watching the reactions of our loved ones when they open a perfectly-chosen gift.
At Fitneff, we have taken some time to consider the holidays and what they mean to us. Unanimously, we agree that giving is important, but this year, we are also extremely moved by a feeling of gratitude.
We are so grateful for the colleagues, partners, and customers with whom we have had the honour of working this year. We revel in our mission of brining activity to the world, and making it easy for people to break away from a sedentary lifestyle in favour of health and movement. We could not achieve our goals without the great number of people who help us to turn this mission into a reality each and every day.
We could not do this alone, and we are so thankful to everyone who has joined us along the way. Thank you!
From the entire team at Fitneff, we wish you a safe and happy holiday season.
Today, on International Women’s Day, I have chosen to profile Laurel Walzak, the female co-founder of Fitneff Inc. Laurel has been successful in so many areas of her career - first as a trailblazer in the sports business industry, then as an entrepreneur and most recently as an Assistant Professor of Sports Media at Ryerson University.
Laurel also spends a great deal of her time and energy outside the office in efforts to advance the careers of young women who are making their start. I asked Laurel some important questions about the role of women in business, and the role that she plays in advocating for other women in her life.
You could say that Jim Wachtel occupies a front-row seat in the corporate health and wellness industry. And, because of his job as a health care cost-containment strategist, he spends a lot of time in that seat, whether it’s in his office, in his car, or on an airplane travelling for work.
Now, he's literally taking steps toward better health without compromising his productivity. Read how he's no longer sitting down on the job with the Walktop Treadmill desk by Fitneff.
