Hamm said he hears many people say they don’t go to the gym because they don’t know how to workout or are embarrassed. “There’s no reason to be embarrassed. Those people who look so good in the gym, haven’t always looked that way.”
Chief of Police Mike Healy said members of his department do physical training tests two times a year and most also work out with weights.
Randy Emmons of the electric department said that many of the employees in his department are walking.
Whatever the form of physical activity, the most important outcome of the CoW on the Moo’ve program is to help employees get themselves into better shape.
“I hope that people will see what that few minutes of exercise is doing for others and they’ll want to participate too,” said Hamm. “Changes won’t happen overnight but in the end, you’ll be a healthier you.”
