Poetry Has Its Perks

Free shakes from Super Shakes
Free shakes from Super Shakes

Big thanks to Super Shakes for choosing Ross & Yerger as the “Healthiest Workplace of the Week” and bringing us free yummy shakes!

Below is the poem about our wellness program, Pulse, that R&Y’s own Kelsey Purvis submitted to Y101 for our chance to win free shakes. We had no idea we had such an awesome poet on staff!!


Pulse is the name of our wellness program.
There aren’t enough healthy tips to cram-
Between Healthy You Visits and the Health Fair,
There are plenty of fruit and veggie recipes to share.

But what makes us different from the rest?
Let’s put that to the test.
Does your company have a time slot,
An hour a week for exercising?- that’s a lot!

And in the summer, once a week
We taste Fruit and Veggies that are on fleek.
We call this activity the Food Kaleidoscope
To make heathier life changes, we sure do hope.

And intermural sports is a must
Especially when every other team is left in our dust.
2015 JSU Intermural Kickball champs
Because we eat healthy, we have no cramps.

R&Y sponsors walks and runs
To shape up all of our buns.
To show we aren’t all talk,
You should join us all at the annual JDRF Walk.

An exercise journal is what we keep,
But only benefits are what we reap.
And at the end of the year,
We are rewarded with some pretty cool gear.

The quarterly challenge is always a blast
“Win it by the minute” got our hearts beating fast.
The winning team had a nice lunch at Char
For showing the others how to set the bar.

In our office is a marvelous gym.
Running short on time is not our problem.
With treadmills, ellipticals, and punch bags galore
It’s pretty cool that working out isn’t a chore.

You see, Heathier Living is what we strive to promote
So please give Ross & Yerger the vote.
We all love an afternoon treat.
And yummy Super Shakes, you just can’t beat.

Our office is located at 200 S. Lamar
Good thing that isn’t too far.
We can’t wait to see you with shakes in hand
Now please go play on the radio a good band.
