We've all heard about the potential health hazards associated with our increasingly sedentary lifestyles, and the tech - especially tech startups - industry is not exempt. A few of our members dedicate their working lives to helping people make the right choices, Fitness Freak make booking gym classes easy, and Ginger Guru help focus your lifestyle decisions.
At TechHub we wanted to help out where we could too, so we're holding our 'Wellness Day' on May 2nd, in Room 2.02, from 12pm - 2pm. We've got blood pressure and glucose tests, advice on posture, nutrition and general advice, from industry experts. Market Sports will be here with an offer for discounted gym membership, free massage sessions, and free one-day passes for their gym (just off Curtain Road, Shoreditch).
Also, every Wednesday for the next 5 weeks we will have yoga for startups, by startups. At 7.45am, for one hour, a yoga instructor will be coming to Campus, organised by our very own members, Fitness Freak. There are limited places available, so book yours here!
What we really want to achieve from this is to help our members, and the tech community as a whole, to focus on improving conditions for themselves where they can. We've always been advocates of regular breaks from the computer (the perks of having table-tennis and table-football!) and balancing work with play.
