Heart Association Honors Wellington As ‘Fit-Friendly’

The American Heart Association has recognized the Village of Wellington as a “Gold Level Fit-Friendly Worksite.”

The award honors Wellington’s commitment to providing physical activity and wellness opportunities for its employees. Wellington is among 38 Palm Beach County companies/organizations deemed “Fit-Friendly.”

The “Gold Level Fit-Friendly Worksite” recognition singles out employers, such as Wellington, that champion the health of its employees through physical activity support, increasing healthy eating options at work and promoting a wellness culture.

Requirements include implementing at least six of the physical activity criteria, two of the nutrition criteria and one of the culture criteria listed in the application form.

Last year, more than 100 Wellington employees participated in wellness programs offered through the “Commit to be Fit” program.
