6 Ways to Encourage Healthy Living at an Apartment Community

Here are some suggestions for property managers to incorporate healthy living in apartment communities.

Many people are trying to be healthier nowadays! Why not help facilitate healthy lifestyles at your apartment community? (Providing that you’re not forcing your residents to join in if they’re not into it.) What, if any, health initiatives do you have going at your apartment community?

Here are some suggestions to get the ball rolling.

Host a Biggest Loser competition. Have interested residents—and even staff members—sign up for a “Biggest Loser” competition. You can have weekly weigh ins (or go by the honor system to encourage people who might be shy about listing their weight publicly), and after a set amount of time, whoever lost the most can win a prize.

Have gym classes. You have that fancy gym—use it. There are all sort of classes you can offer: yoga, dance classes, some gyms even offer treadmill classes. It doesn’t even have to be that expensive for you to staff—you can hire someone to lead a class once a week, and if you get a ton of resident interest you can look into increasing it.
