Participation in sporting activities has grown rapidly. After the outbreak of the COVID-19 epidemic and the resultant restrictions imposed on outdoor sports and the closure of fitness clubs, many people felt that they were completely deprived of the opportunity to do sports. Companies would like to support employees in their hobbies, thus retaining the talents and building the employer’s positive image. In these new circumstances, they also want to look after the mental balance and a way to release the emotions that may be associated with the new situation.
Sport is also important in the context of building the company culture. Joint efforts enable to shape teamwork, cooperation, aspirations and fighting spirit, even if, at the moment, we cannot do sports together, but only exchange results and motivate each other to participate in regular online training.
In addition to a balanced diet and healthcare, physical activity is among the factors that have the greatest impact on health. Healthy physical activity contributes to reducing the risk of developing lifestyle diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, chronic back or joint pain.
At a time when so much is being said about psychological resilience and immunity to infectious diseases, it is extremely important to emphasise the role of physical activity in building both the resilience and the immunity. Numerous studies have shown that regular exercise and the correct body mass reduce the incidence of colds or seasonal infections.
We must also highlight the role of physical activity and time for relaxation in the prevention of mental disorders. Physical exercise helps achieve balance, deal with stress caused by the epidemic or the market situation, and release the excess of negative emotions that may accumulate during a long stay at home, often with relatives, children and extended family who are also struggling with their problems (school, work, boredom).
Medicover has joined forces with OK System, a strong brand specialising in providing sports packages, in order to ensure access to more than 4,500 sports and recreation centres throughout Poland. Therefore, even in a dispersed company structure, your company can provide all employees with access to physical activity.

We know that physical activity is not only sports, but fun and relaxation as well. Therefore, the OK System online platform also offers:
