Many Dominion Diagnostics LLC employees, including Jolanta Porada, 58, a reimbursement specialist, are moving more as a result of the company’s employee-led Achieve Health & Wellness program, which tries to put fun and facts into its initiatives.

The “fun” means workplace yoga classes, group walks, healthy potlucks and gardening workshops. For Porada, on-site Zumba classes help her to accomplish goals.

“It’s a perfect combination of dance, aerobic, as well as elements of kickboxing and cardio workout,” she said. “It gives me a chance to … feel completely free of stress.”

Zumba right at work makes it easy for her to attend classes and motivates other healthy behaviors – Porada said she’s drinking more water and sleeping better.

In addition to fun, Dominion – a medical testing laboratory – produces facts. Achieve gives participants data on their health status and tracks results of its events.

A healthy thought:
‘I truly enjoy our wellness program. … It can’t be more convenient.’
