No Pain, No Gain
designed by Coach Venus Arthur
Picture This: As soon as you get comfortable in the middle seat on a crowded aircraft, the passenger necxt to you yells in her outside voice, “I have to be uncomfortable because you are too big to fit in your seat?”
The hair stands up on the back of your neck, and for the next 3.5 hours it takes everything in you not to cry. That walk of shame exiting the plane spins you into a deep depression. You spend the next 3 years yo-yo dieting! However, you are still morbidly obese and pre-diabetic. That’s the year you lose 6 family members in 6 months, all due to preventable illnesses. That’s when you realize your life matters.

After I was humiliated on that aircraft, I spent 5 days in bed. I had great employee benefits, but instead of utilizing the resources provided by my employer, I called in sick for 5 days. $225 billion per year is the cost of missed days of work and loss of productivity in the US. That relates to $1,685 per employee.
Most companies see an 18% decrease in healthcare and medical absenteeism resulting in a $1,500 claims cost per participant when they partner with Coach Venus, LLC.
