Employee Testimonials

Danielle provides us with fun pilates sessions giving a valuable opportunity to get some exercise at lunchtime and go back to my desk feeling refreshed. Pilates is excellent for stretching and strengthening muscles that get strained or forgotten when doing desk work and I have noticed a positive difference. She is attentive to everyone and provides exercises that can be done at your own individual level.

I originally started Pilates a few years back as I had heard this was good for strengthening the core which I needed to help improve my Netball skills. This has improved not only my game but I also noticed that I have less back issues while sitting for long periods at my desk. In addition to this my balance and flexibility have also improved making just general life easier.

Employer Testimonial

At Abcam we believe that the well being of our staff is as important as their safety. It is important to ensure that we maintain well being in such a changing and dynamic working environment. A healthy, engaged and resilient workforce is more productive and profitable in terms of efficiency, customer relations, team working loyalty and retention, and sustainable performance.
It has been shown that having a break from your desk at lunchtime increases productivity after lunch. Therefore Abcam have various activities arranged during our lunchtime breaks such as yoga, Pilates and boot camp sessions. All these activities are subsidised by the company to ensure that they are accessible to everyone. In addition to the weekly sessions we also run quarterly safety and well being awareness days which further promotes well being and safety in a positive and fun way.
