NUTRITION & FITNESS FOR SHIFTWORKERS

Nutrition & Fitness For Shiftworkers

We provide a double-edged presentation, the first half covers how to use nutrition to manage the negative impacts of a shift working lifestyle and the second half covers why physical fitness is important to shift workers and how to fit effective fitness into your unsocial work schedule.

Shiftwork has shown to be related to just some of these conditions : 
  • Produces carcinogenic effects on the body
  • Increased rate of breast cancer in women
  • Shortens life expectancy by 20%
  • Increases incidence of depression by 1500%
  • Increases ulcer risk by 800%
  • Produces more accidents and fatalities on the job
  • Substance and alcohol abuse is higher
  • Fatalities commuting to work increases
  • The body becomes more susceptible to heart disease, weight gain, digestive issues and type II diabetes
  • Hallucinations, brain fog and irritability are higher in shift workers


This workshop is not exclusive to shift workers as there are many 9-5 workers who struggle to fit fitness into their routine and struggle with their sleep patterns and energy levels and so ask us about customizing this workshop to your industry and organization.

Because working when tired is worse than being drunk, and so think how this could impact construction workers and those operating heavy industrial machinery.

Take a listen to this short audio regarding why you need to prioritize your workers sleep habits.
