The connection between health, fitness and employee well being/productivity is well established.
We have a number of the Capsticks team who are keen on fitness from developing their running, training as personal trainer ( take a look at @lucy_fitness) through to extreme fitness. Our Run Clubs have been a huge success for beginners (kudos to @ianC_Capsticks) and Capsticks Strava club is becoming very competitive and we are encouraging everyone to get more active however they do it. For me, its all about triathlon and the benefits it brings..
For managers, the motivation to train, or compete in a triathlon at whatever level is a substantial aid when running a business. Being continually exposed to the idea of "you get out, what you put in" is an invaluable lesson for all. Triathlon also provides a wonderful opportunity to gain perspective. One of my main motivations of successful managers is to sail boils down to not wanting to take the well-trodden path, instead looking for a more inspirational route and a sense of adventure
