Ep. 55: Riverside Corporate Wellness
Riverside Corporate Wellness is based in La Crosse, WI and has set a standard when it comes to a comprehensive program to address the entire person. We get into talking about how the program is set up and everything that RCW does. From their in-house physician to all the 'alternative' therapies that are offered for people that might benefit them we cover them all.
They focus not only on the 'once you're sick' side of health but offer training and programs to help people get healthy before they have issues through traditional strength training, yoga and other options. Pair that with an in-house dietitian to help you fine tune your nutrition and you don't have to go anywhere else. Check out this episode for ideas to apply to work and life.
