ACTIVE BREAKS

Looking to increase productivity during your meetings and professional training classes ? Let us add a little pep to your daily agenda with quick, physically energizing breaks that help employees maintain a higher level of concentration and productivity.

 

 

 

OXYGEN breaks have been designed to fit into events where there’s a lot of content to be delivered to the participants, and where the level of attention and concentration is of great importance. These active breaks are not intended to be presented during periods of “free time” or during happy hour, but rather during intensive training days, strategic planning meetings or even conventions.
Each of our oxygen breaks lasts from 5 to 30 minutes – the duration being adjusted according to the type of break and the time allotted.

Several breaks available:

This OXYGEN break stands out especially with its original and fresh character! The smoothie bike is actually a stationary bike on which a mixer whose electric part was removed is attached. So, the source of energy comes from the bike... and of course users! If they pedal fast and long enough, then the energy necessary to make a delicious smoothie is obtained!

Two concepts are offered:

  • Time for a break
    • Context: Takes place at break time (AM or PM), near tables offering beverages, snacks and refreshments (in the conference room or in the hallway/hall). The smoothies prepared during this activity are intended to bring a touch of freshness and surprise to the snack already being offered. If “special” beverages are already being offered to participants (e.g., alcoholic beverages), it is preferable to opt for another type of OXYGEN break.
  • “Going the distance together” - full day
    • Context: This formula is interesting when all members are in the same room throughout the day (except for meals and breaks, of course).

Take advantage of the first plenary of your day to activate, motivate and brighten up your group. Our facilitator, dressed in a bath robe, will form the “robe” squad and then will dance to the rhythm of a call-and-answer song. Laughter and participation are guaranteed! This type of activity breaks the ice, creates interaction and encourages exchanges between the participants and the presenter.

Convention delegates are invited to add a twist to their coffee break by preparing their own popcorn with the help of our Spin'N Pop, a completely revolutionary popcorn machine, since it is powered by... pedals!

Summary procedure

Planned to make a simple coffee break an absolutely memorable moment, we install the Spin'N Pop as well as 2 trampolines near the “coffee break” zone. Delegates are then invited to use a manual crankset which, depending on the user's strength, will be able to generate enough electricity to power the popcorn machine. To encourage “the activator,” we will choose 2 supporters who will imitate popcorn motion by jumping on small trampolines. Three to four minutes are required to make eight cups of popcorn.

Context: The activity takes place at break time (AM or PM), near the tables offering beverages, snacks and refreshments (in the conference room or in the hallway/hall).

This active break can also be presented in circuit form, as part of a teambuilding activity. More information


After a long period involving sustained attention, it is normal for your troops’ concentration level to fade. What better than a drill to evacuate... stress and reinvigorate your audience! Stretching exercises run by our home firefighter will relieve muscle tension accumulated since the beginning of the day.

Context: Between two presentations or workshops, in the morning or in the afternoon.

Treat yourself to a brain break and put some colour and madness into the middle of your professional day. Take an exotic trip guided by the “spicy” music and dance of this OXYGEN break with a tropical touch. Follow the rhythm of our Zumba instructor and let yourself be transported!

Context:
Just before the lunch break or between two presentations or workshops, in the morning or in the afternoon.

Take part in our quiz on training myths and realities. Animated like a televised game, with musical themes and strong enthusiasm, help us personalize our concept by integrating questions about statistics on the company (or the association or the convention) or even concepts addressed in previous workshops. The most competitive people will be served!


Context:
After a hearty meal, the body deploys more energy in digesting than in brain functions. This is what explains the feeling of fatigue that often settles in after lunch. The activity based around this OXYGEN break is adapted to this specific time of day. We offer an intellectual stimulation throughout the game, rather than relying on physical activity... For an equally refreshing result.
