Real estate professionals tend to work long hours, eat on the go and sleep fewer hours than recommended. This can quickly take a toll on your health if you’re not careful! This is why Keller Williams Realty launched a “Wellness Program” for all KW associates back in 2013. Since then, the KW Memorial and KW Energy Corridor offices have received national attention for outstanding levels of participation!
When you’re a Houston real estate agent at KW Energy Corridor or KW Memorial, it’s more than just a place to work. It’s also a place to gain support and create bonds with other agents while regularly remaining active and healthy. As you work toward your health or fitness goals, you create lasting friendships and learn a thing or two from other agents.
We know it’s hard to fit fitness into your busy work schedule. But when you have others to exercise with, it feels just a little bit easier! That is why we get together for activities such as Zumba, yoga, fitness boot camp and more on a regular basis, and occasionally create teams for an organized race or some other fun fitness-related activity.
Currently, we have a bunch of agents and staff signed up for The Biggest Loser 90-Day Exercise Challenge, and we have a team signed up for Tour de Cure for Diabetes on Oct. 1. Our activities are always changing, so it never gets dull!
In our new KW Energy Corridor office, we even have a state-of-the-art gym! This way, agents can work out before work, during lunch, after work, or whenever it’s most convenient for them without ever having to leave the office. It doesn’t get much more convenient than that.
We were showcased in a Realtor Magazine article back in October 2015, when they wrote about how more than two dozen of our agents get together every Friday night for a fitness activity! These are some of the benefits that we started noticing after starting the Wellness Division:
More productivity – When you’re active and having fun, you feel better and have more energy! You can get more done in less time, without feeling drained afterward.
Strengthened morale – We have more pride, trust and commitment as a group of agents working together and supporting one another.
Lower health care costs – We can’t promise this one, but working out on a regular basis might keep you healthier for longer. Think of it as preventative medicine while creating friendships, losing weight, gaining energy and having fun!
