dc.description.abstract The purpose of the study is to examine the relationship between participation in a fitness training program and worker productivity in Lebanon. One hundred thirty-one individual employees of the Beirut area were surveyed to measure the relationship between fitness participation and perceived productivity and job satisfaction. Results found that nonparticipants in fitness training programs were more likely to report health-related work productivity limitations then participants. A positive relation was found with participants' perception that exercise helps them enjoy their work better and relate better to their coworkers and finding ones job interesting enough to avoid boredom. Results also indicate that as the age group increases the loss of ability to repeat the same hand motion, and finding ones' job interesting increase. When one doesn't exercise, the loss of ability to use equipment and their enthusiasm about their job decreases. The happier one feels about their job, the more they concentrate on their work, the more they do the required amount of work on job, and the more one is able to work to his capacity. Finally the more one feel he is forcing himself to go to work the less is his capacity to use his equipment at work. This study has indicated that fitness training exercise may positively influence employee self-reported, work-related productivity and job satisfaction. Despite the low variance provided by the used variables, findings still add valuable insight into the benefits of becoming physically active on a regular basis. en_US
