HEALTH & WELLNESS PERKS
COME GET YOUR SWEAT ON AT ORANGE THEORY!!
There is still room to join that FREE Orange Theory Fitness class next Thursday, June 6th at 1:30pm! This is a special offer for Block 15 and Caves employees, and Kristen helped make it all possible for us (she’s been a member for almost 2 years)!
There is room for only 24 people, so if you want to make sure and secure a spot in the class, please give them a call or text to register (541) 716-5006. They will ask each participant for a credit card to put on file as it's just how there system reserves a spot in the class, but again this is a FREE class. Kristen has posted an info sheet in all three break rooms, and you can also find that info sheet here.
Additionally, Block 15 has also purchased a block of Orange Theory classes for employees to use. Employees are able to use up to two classes per week, at no charge! The class next week is a great intro to see if this is something you’d be interested in using more than once! Again, you can call the studio to sign up for the free team class, or another class if you are unable to make it on June 6th.
Let Kristen know if you have any questions, and hopefully see you on June 6th!
*Also, don't forget that Block 15 and Caves offer partial fitness center membership reimbursement for eligible employees. Do you attend your local fitness center at least 8 times per calendar month? If yes, than show us proof and we'll put $20 into your next paycheck!
