Healthy 4 U specilise in Holistic Lifestyle Coaching coupled with world class training and the Healthy 4 U Body Fat Loss System. Now they have taken one step further and are trying to do their bit to help the environment.
They have decided to take the bold step of calculating and then offsetting not only the carbon omissions of the business but the personal omissions of all the team members.
Now when someone signs up for personal training or health coaching with Healthy 4 U they can rest assured they are joining a bunch of people that are committed to the environment and keeping the world we live in a beautiful place.
To calculate their carbon footprint they used the following online calculator: http://www.carbonfootprint.com/
I believe that environmentally friendly business is the way to go and the way to thrive in the modern business world. Just as Richard Branson says business that do not take care of the environment are a dying breed and will be left behind in this new business paradigm, let’s hope he’s right.
Out of all the personal training companies in Dubai none have yet offset their omissions and yet this is a business that helps people feel amazing, lose weight and look great, what could be a better fit? When you’re improving your internal ecosystem it is a natural progression to try to then improve or at least take care of your external ecosystem.
Increasingly, especially recently I meet Clients who not only want to lose weight and feel healthier but also do their bit for the environment. They recycle, take public transport when they can and give money to charities that help our world.
To offset their omission Healthy 4 U decided to take their own route. They used a website called www.nofunbeingextinct.org This website is linked to projects in the Amazon jungle that help residents of the area protect their land from deforestation. It is championed by the legendary designer Viviane Westwood. It is extremely cost effective, in fact it saved Healthy 4 U 850 GBP. Wow, now that’s a saving.
Healthy 4 U are offering their Clients a 10% discount if they purchase a block of 10 personal training sessions and also offset their own omissions using nofunbeingextinct.org. All they have to do is to send Healthy 4 U their email receipt and the 10% will be taken off their next block of personal training sessions.
This is particularly important in the UAE, the per capita output of CO2 equals; 40.3 tones/yr, the average for the USA or the UK for example is approximately 11 tones/yr.
We hope that Healthy 4 U’s example is copied all over Dubai and this starts a trend amongst not only personal training companies but every business to offset their carbon omissions and to help the environment.
The company motto at Healthy 4 U is to be healthy on the inside, outside and worldwide.
Lets make it happen, as they brand Nike says, “Just Do It.”
