Fitsurance: your way to a healthy, productive and cheerful workforce
Our goal is to reduce costs due to absenteeism. To achieve this, we offer a holistic health check for employees of your company, with accompanying personalized advice on exercise and diet. In addition, we organize master classes, feedback moments and running groups to give your employees a social platform and keep them motivated.
During the health check, a number of parameters are measured that give a complete health profile of a person. All parameters are measured and interpreted from an “evidence-based” point of view. The values of these parameters are communicated back to the employees with accompanying personalized advice on diet and exercise. The health check will take place four times a year, but the advice on diet and exercise will be evaluated and adjusted on a monthly basis. By acting in this way we ensure a reduction of absenteeism in a preventive way, instead of the usual “curative” way. In addition, we will also organize activities in groups such as master classes and running groups.
In short, are you an employer and do you want to:
- Reduce absenteeism
- Increase the productivity of your employees
- Improve the quality of life of your employees
- Reduce the number of depressions / burn-outs

Anthropometry, or measuring the human body, consists of measuring height, weight and size around the abdomen and hip
Blood pressure is a telling parameter about the risk of cardiovascular disease and possible heart failure. Increased blood pressure can cause wear to the veins
We offer an entire lipid profile test. Cholesterol levels are generally not measured frequently, but is a major indicator for cardiovascular disease and possible heart failure
Grip strength is an indicator of overall muscle strength in the body. A low grip strength may indicate a reduction in independence and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes
It probably sounds familiar, a little clip on the tip of your finger. It measures the oxygen saturation in your blood. This is what we also measure. Long-lasting low saturation can lead to organ damage
Continuously elevated glucose levels can lead to type 2 diabetes, and should therefore be monitored carefully
By means of a questionnaire and interview we determine your daily activity, which is strongly related to obesity, diabetes, absenteeism and cardiovascular diseases
Optionally, we also offer an endurance test that makes an estimate of your maximal endurance. A reduced endurance can lead to a reduction in independence at a higher age
As additional service we can also measure your lung function. We measure the volume and power of your lungs. For instance, if you stop smoking the volume and power of your lungs will increase
In addition to the health check we also offer monthly feedback moments, Masterclasses, running groups and events
We are Fitsurance!
Our initiative is aimed at improving the health of employees, which will reduce absenteeism. In our initiative, the emphasis is on increasing physical health, because only these parameters can be measured in a fully objective manner. Absenteeism, however, is a very complex phenomenon in which physical, social and mental health play a role. Fitsurance responds to all aspects of this phenomenon!
