PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — For the 6th straight year, GlobalFit, a local leader in corporate wellness and physical activity programs, will gather more than 200 of the region’s top executives to hear from the corporate wellness industry’s top minds. The event is tonight (May 10th) at the Hyatt at the Bellevue.

Junk-food enthusiasts, the sedentary, and smokers all contribute disproportionately to their employers’ ever-growing healthcare budgets. To affect the healthy transformation of these unhealthy and costly lifestyles, GlobalFit convenes its sixth-annual Innovations in Wellness Summit. Speakers include serial entrepreneur and business/lifestyle commentator, Jen Groover; President and CEO of Health Enhancement Research Organization (HERO), Jerry Noyce; Senior Medical Officer, WorkLife Programs, CDC’s National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Dr. Casey Chosewood; and All State Insurance Benefits Director, Ned Kyle.

GlobalFit has 70 million eligible employees/insured persons in North America. It is the leading provider of physical activity programs for American businesses. Since 1992, GlobalFit has been known for its network of gyms; today its signature offering is Destination: You, a corporate program helping employees build healthier lifestyles. GlobalFit also provides convenient, affordable options through its Virtual Nutrition Coach and “Healthy Changes,” which is a menu of one-on-one health programs.
