Health training 'JUNG, GSUND UND SEXY…'
17 BRP-Rotax apprentices in the 2nd year of apprenticeship took part in a health-focused outdoor training themed “Jung, Gsund und Sexy …” (“young, healthy and sexy …”) in the BWZ Steyregg from August 24th to 25th, 2016.
The health of the employees has top priority with BRP-Rotax. Therefore, we take measures to promote health already during apprenticeship and, among other activities, regularly invite our apprentices to an outdoor training.
During these trainings our apprentices learn interesting facts about their physique and what impact addictions such as smoking, alcohol, drugs, compulsive eating, and bulimia but also addictions like sports have on the body and mental health. A close look is also taken at how to find ‘hidden traps’ in food (amount of sugar/fat, E-numbers…) and they have the opportunity to take part in a ‘UKK walking test’ to find out in what state their physical condition is. With this, the adolescents learn what sport means for their body and how much of it actually is healthy. Furthermore, sensitive topics like what mobbing does to mental health and how treating each other in certain ways affects health.
Statements of the apprentices:
Anna Felbermair: Very interesting, I have learnt a lot about health topics that I did not know before.
Manuel Weinzierl: These two days were very instructive and we have seen that we are a very good team and cooperate greatly.
Marlene Kaufmann: The training was very diverse. I liked the combination of theory and sporty exercises. It was again a very successful outdoor training for us BRP-Rotax apprentices with a lot of fun and plenty of useful health tips.
