This is a tailor made programme that caters for the health and "wellness" of the Football League Managers. Its aim is to prevent illness and optimize the health and fitness of the league managers. Its major focus is on the reduction of cardiovascular risk and other lifestyle related diseases through a comprehensive approach which involves in depth cardio respiratory assessments, lifestyle interventions including advanced blood lipid (fats) testing where appropriate and follow up tracking and subsequent re testing throughout each year. It has proved extremely successful with over 82 managers currently on the programme. Several potential health crises have been detected in a significant number of managers and dealt with very successfully. It's accolades are now being recognized world wide and this programme, it's results and it's success is featured in the UEFA magazine "Medical Matters" (April 2006). Wellness International has received World and European "Best Practice" awards for its work in corporate wellness.
The programme was instituted through John Barnwell, Vice President of the League Managers Association who developed links with Dr Dorian Dugmore, based at the Adidas headquarters in Hazel Grove, Cheshire. It's seed funding originally came through the PFA and has subsequently been funded by the FA Premier League who together with the LMA have recognised the need to "care for the carers" in looking after the health and fitness of the football managers.
