Body Control Pilates and the Back4Good Programme, Employee Engagement with Health & Wellbeing

March 28, 2017 - Mike Dilke

I really enjoyed talking to both guests on this week's Relaxback UK Show. Thank you very much to Lynne Robinson of Body Control Pilates and Adam Sidbury of Digital Fibre for taking the time to talk with me.


Lynne Robinson has a fabulous story of how she started with pilates because she had a bad back and this has lead to her being very influential, writing numerous books, making DVDs, creating Body Control Pilates and being called 'The Queen of Pilates' by The Times.

This is all very relevant to the Relaxback UK show and musculoskeletal health especially as Lynne has a special programme for back pain sufferers called Back4Good. This has helped a lot of people and if you are a sufferer check it out.

I intend to! I am not a back pain sufferer but after chatting with Lynne I have been invited back for a Healthy Back class which I am really looking forward to. I will let you know how it goes.

In addition Adam Sidbury of Digital Fibre has some real insight into how and why companies should promote employee engagement particularly in the health and wellbeing sphere. If you are responsible for any number of staff listen to Adam for some very realistic advice on how to keep them engaged, healthy, happy and efficient.

Look at the table below for return on investment figures, due to wellness programmes, from research carried out by Pricewaterhouse Coopers LLP that was commissioned by the Health Work Wellbeing Executive (Part of the DWP) -
