Recordables Reduced & Lives Saved


Balanced Fitness & Health is responsible for saving employees’ lives and reducing recordable on-the-job injuries at our construction firm. We were struggling with a number of injuries and with hiring the right people for the intense physical work we perform every day. Melissa created an on-site testing protocol so we get the right people in the right positions. This has been crucial to ensuring new employees are fit for the job.

Melissa is a breeze to work with. She is also compassionate, trustworthy and an excellent educator. She helped us coordinate all new hire procedures into one process. Now, paperwork and pre-employment screenings are all done at the same time, saving us and our new hires time and money. Balanced Fitness & Health also provided us with a stretching program that has further reduced injuries.

With her professional, caring approach and in-depth expertise, Melissa was also able to convince several of our employees to visit their doctors, which saved their lives! I know this because they let me know they appreciated it. If they had not received medical attention for blood pressure and various issues she identified, they would very likely be dead.

It's hard to argue with fewer injuries and increased health awareness! We highly recommend Balanced Fitness & Health as part of any corporate injury prevention or wellness program.

P.S Because of Melissa, I invested in my own wellness and am taking greater responsibility for my health. I took her injury prevention techniques to heart, plus, I welcomed her guidance for living a better lifestyle through nutrition and exercise. Her integrity, diligence and compassion are unparalleled.
