executive's fitness level was evaluated by St. Anthony's SCORE program
for endurance, strength, flexibility and body makeup, including a health
risk appraisal and blood work assessment. Also, as a part of their
assessment, each executive completed a questionnaire regarding their
fitness and nutrition habits.
Those recognized for workplace
wellness were evaluated and scored for offering onsite exercise spaces,
health risk appraisals and screenings, team sports, weight-loss programs
and tobacco-free initiatives.
The Fittest Execs and Workplace
Wellness winners will be featured in the December issue of okcBIZ
magazine, publishing soon. Additional copies of the December issue may
