Wellness Fitness Program
In 2013, the Los Angeles Airport Police initiated a Wellness Fitness Program to provide LAWA employees an opportunity to participate in a program that focuses on enhancing personal health in order to improve workplace productivity. The program begins with a one-week orientation that covers nutrition, exercise techniques to prevent or reduce injuries, and an optional physical exam to evaluate weight, cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels. Then, participants take part in two 50-minute long workout sessions for six weeks. At the end of six weeks, participants receive a certificate of completion. In 2014, 134 employees participated in the program.
