    How to Care for Your Body as an Industrial Athlete

    Summary

    Arborists generally work at least 8 hours a day performing a sawdust triathlon, yet may not consider themselves as athletes. Arborists who care for themselves as athletes will prolong their careers by improving their health and reducing the risk of injury, while improving productivity. This talk will discuss why arborists should consider themselves as industrial athletes, and will include education on easy to implement health and wellness strategies to improve performance and general health, while reducing the risk of a work related injury.
