Let’s join PiVitality @ Pivot Park!

Pivot Park has vitality high on its agenda and offers several ways for community members to work on their vitality. Perhaps you’ve heard the news already. On 20 September 2021, the third edition of the PiVitality online program will start, and you are welcome to join! The first 2 editions of PiVitality were a tremendous success, and this edition is promising to be even better!

Why does Pivot Park value vitality so highly?

At Pivot Park, we strive to improve global health. We make our contribution by supporting the development of a dynamic, pharma-based knowledge community. You, the people at Pivot Park, make up this community and your health matters a great deal to us. That is why we have organised vitality-related events and also developed the PiVitality program. With these activities, we hope you become more aware of your vitality, and as a consequence, you will become more resilient.

It’s all about feeling well and balance, that’s how we feel at Pivot Park. A healthy work-life balance in creates resilience. And resilient employees are happy employees. Happy employees, in turn, form the foundation of a healthy organisation. And in our case, a healthy community.

PiVitality online program: What does it entail?

PiVitality is an app developed by Pivot Park, together with our partner FiTNEZZplaza in Oss. Using the app, you will learn all about your vitality and what you can do to improve it. PiVitality focuses on 3 topics: body, food and mind. The PiVitality program will run for 2 months and during this period, you will learn all about health, exercise, nutrition, daily routines and sleep. In the first week of the program, you check your baseline, so you know all about your vitality at that point. Throughout the program, you will have opportunities to repeat this check. This enables you to carefully track your progress. Each day, you will receive challenges, background information and topics for reflection. The platform is available to just 20 Pivot Park community members at the time, so it’s a very exclusive online program.

PiVitality program: What’s in it for you?

In the 2 months that you will participate in the program, you will learn a great deal about the way your body functions and why a healthy lifestyle is important. During the PiVitality program, you will be issued assignments, videos to watch and guidelines. One of the participants of the last edition mentions that the wide variety of exercises is one of the reasons that PiVitality is so much fun to work with. “I took part in the PiVitality program because I wanted to gain more knowledge about leading a healthy lifestyle. Particularly in regard to nutrition, exercise and mental health. I am happy I joined, because I know much more now. I am aware of the nutritional values of my food intake and the consequences of the food that I eat. I feel I am much more in control now.” A bonus for you: after these 2 months, chances are you will be feeling much better! Another big advantage of PiVitality: it’s completely free of charge.

Energy Walk

As of 20 September, we will be rebooting our Energy Walk. Every other Monday, all Pivot Park community members are welcome to join during their lunch break. The route will take us through Oss and will take 30-45 minutes. During the Energy Walk, you will take approximately 5,000 steps and your battery is charged for the rest of the week!

SNS Oss City run

This annual running event in Oss goes literally straight through the highlights of the city. It is a traffic-free downtown route and you get the unique opportunity to run through buildings. Pivot Park is sponsoring the registration fee for Pivot Park teams joining the SNS Oss City Run.

Vitality events

In addition, we also organise events in the field of various vitality topics. Currently, we are planning an lecture with the European record holder in memorizing the number ‘pi’, which is no less than 22,621 decimals behind the comma. You might think, okay nice, but what’s in it for me? That will be explained during this PiVitality session. Training and better use of your memory can actually boost your life! Want to stay in the loop of this event or other vitality-related events? Download the pivot community app and stay tuned.
