At Loszach Report, we are partnered with many fantastic companies working in the corporate wellness industry, and we want to spread the word about them!
We are conducting regular interviews with the leaders of our partner companies to spread the word about the interesting services they provide, and find out what has inspired them to do what they do. We can all benefit from learning about the great services available for companies investing in corporate wellness.
The second person we have interviewed is Patrick Fulop, owner of Santé Martiale. Patrick was one of our first partners, and we love promoting Santé Martiale because they offer a great service which is unique for workplaces and lots of fun! For our English readers, Santé means health, so his company name translates directly to Martial Health. He runs a pretty cool company, we’re happy to be partnered with Patrick!
1. Can you please tell me about yourself? What led you to Martial arts? How long have you been open and working in your field?
Gladly. I started practicing martial arts about 10 years ago. I used to practice swimming, and when my competition career came to an end, I was looking for a better way to stay in shape, while learning interesting techniques. Kung Fu has been for me the best, most complete type of training I have ever done. And after only about 3 years of practicing martial arts, I liked it so much that I starting learning to teach, and I have been doing it ever since.
2. What is it exactly that Santé Martiale does?
Santé Martiale helps businesses increase their productivity, and lower their costs thanks to health and wellness interventions for the employees. We give introduction to martial arts classes and workshops in corporate settings.
3. What makes your service different and really stand out?
Our approach is unique due to the fact that we use the technology of the Martial Arts to reach the highest level of efficiency and safety in physical training. Lots of companies have health and fitness programs at work, but it’s very rare to see programs that include Kung Fu, so we really stand out that way.
4. How can your service create positive change for business clients and their employees?
Martial Arts is one of the best ways to improve one’s health, in all aspects. So with our program you will improve your physical capacity, your energy level, and your mental calm and focus. Simply put, better health means better productivity, lower absenteeism and health costs and a more pleasant and positive workplace.
5. Why did you agree to partner with Loszach Report?
Loszach Report seemed to be a great initiative to help businesses assess the situation in terms of their needs for workplace health solutions. Since our areas of expertise are so complementary, is was only natural to partner up.
6. What advice would you give to HR people that manage wellness programs?
I would say that a successful wellness program starts at the top. It is important to get the bosses implicated, and excited about the program to ensure maximal positive impact. In the end, health and wellness have to become part of the company’s culture.
Stayed tuned for our next interview, coming soon!
