I enjoy challenging them to meet their fitness goals or getting them excited about the next incentive program. I love learning about health...

Team LeGrand is named after Eric LeGrand. Eric LeGrand was a standout high school football player from New Jersey. He went on to play for Rutgers University and by his sophomore year he led the team with 13 tackles on kickoff coverage and recorded a tackle-for-loss in seven games.
On October 16th, 2010, in his junior year, LeGrand suffered a severe spinal injury during a game against Army in Met Life Stadium. Following a collision against an opposing player, LeGrand lay on the ground for several minutes before being carted off, only able to move his head. He was taken to the intensive care unit of the Hackensack University Medical Center, where doctors determined that LeGrand was paralyzed from the neck down.
The active aging population are desiring for more opportunities to be more active as they continue living longer lifespans. Without a great community fitness program in place, centers may be losing out on a booming market that continues to grow year after year.
Elevation Corporate Health’s Partner, Angela Nichols, and Regional Director of Business Innovation, Micaela Robinson, recently spoke at the 2019 CALA (California Assisted Living Association) Spring Conference in Monterey Bay, California on this very topic.
They share 3 strategies that can help enhance active aging community programs so that seniors continue to stay engaged, healthy, and happy.
Flooring: When considering flooring options, pick something that is continuous, has depth and has a little give while remaining stable to walk on. We recommend rubberized rolled flooring in a light color to provide depth and to provide cushion for impact. Stay...

Building a positive company culture is an integral part of business. It not only attracts and retains long-tenured employees, but it also makes for a more positive and supportive workplace. Elevation Corporate Health, founded by Tom Kapp and Sandy Meagher, are celebrating their 25th year of being in business due to creating a positive workplace. In this article, we will showcase the many ways Elevation invests in their people to create a great company culture.
Fun Fact: 10.7% of our Elevation employees exceed over 10 years of working for the company!
One of the reasons why employees become long-tenured employees is because of the ongoing training and education that they can receive. Sara Baker, the Director of Training & Education, has created educational programs to incentivize employees to continue learning in their field and become leaders in the industry. Here are a few programs that Elevation has created:

As a company, Elevation Corporate Health has had a strong grip working with many different client sectors, with residential communities being their fastest growing market. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that communities are looking to find ways to engage millennials while keeping our aging population social and active.
For years, communities have been equipping their amenity features with an onsite fitness center. However, that’s no longer enough with people wanting more bang for their buck.

“Residential communities are challenged to compete with the boutique fitness centers model of getting a really great workout in a short amount of time,” stated Angie Nichols, Partner and SVP of Elevation Corporate Health.
“Providing high end customer service and...
