Chelsea Football Club launches Match Fit Meetings initiative

Chelsea Football Club has launched its Match Fit Meetings initiative aiming to “help delegates get a good start to 2012”.
The club, which has 21 event spaces including the 1,400sqm Great Hall and 60 syndicate rooms, has created a series of exercises to ensure delegates stay “supple during long hours spent in meetings and in seated positions,” says the club.
An exercise guide will be provided to all meetings and conferences attendees from this month (January 2012) and includes targeted movements for the eyes, mouth, arms, legs and hands.
Created with a little tongue in cheek, the routines include the ‘bite the sandwich mouth stretch’ and ‘the smartphone finger’. The club aims to produce a second installment later in the year, incorporating other body areas such as shoulders, wrists, the back and special breathing techniques.
“Match Fit Meetings is an initiative introduced to underline the importance of delegate fitness and productivity in a fun way,” says Head of Venue at Chelsea FC, Simon Hunter. “We provide a healthy environment for delegates during meetings and conferences, including offering nutritious menus, breakout spaces with natural daylight and the added extra of a stadium tour. Match Fit Meetings is an extension of this and we hope it proves an interesting talking point.”
