Much research has gone into understanding the link between entrepreneurial success and fitness. The truth is the relationship between the two is not breaking news. Indeed there are tons of case studies supporting positive direct correlation between business success and wellness/fitness.
According to Entrepreneur Magazine's "The Entrepreneur Diet" written by Men's Fitness Magazine former senior editor Tom Weede. (Entrepreneur Press 2007) business owners who make time to enjoy balanced nutrition (not eating in the car or at your desk), and who engage themselves in exercise, stress reduction, and relaxation practices show increased creativity, greater endurance for longer work schedules, increased sales and productivity, and decreased absences due to stress, anxiety and illness.

Not only is regular exercise and good nutrition helpful for the entrepreneur, studies have also indicated improved productivity and happier work-life balance experiences for employees who engage in wellness practices on a regular basis.
To support this trend toward wellness many human resource departments have instituted employee wellness initiatives to help reduce the health insurance costs associated with sedentary and unhealthy lifestyle practices.
