Strength Training from Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota

Maybe your employees don’t have access to a gym or don’t have time to get there on a regular basis. When they participate in BCBSND’s Strength Training Program, they receive a free resistance tube that they can use at home or easily throw in a suitcase when they are traveling. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a combination of aerobic exercise-such as walking, swimming, or bicycling-with strength training can have a “profound impact” on your health. Milissa Van Eps, a Blue Cross Blue Shield member education consultant, will provide a long list of health benefits and will show your employees how they can work all of their muscle groups using this simple tube.
