Ace Auto Employees Enjoy “Junkyard Pilates”
Working at the largest auto parts and junkyard in St. Paul is not an easy task, so reducing workplace injuries is an important part of Ace Auto Parts commitment to our employees and their safety.
Since May of 2010, employees have participated in weekly Pilates classes. As a company, we hope the exercises will improve balance and strengthen muscle groups in the back and shoulders. Ultimately, this will lead to fewer workplace injuries.
The program has been especially helpful to Ace Auto Parts dismantlers, who work with their arms in the air for most of the day removing parts from cars suspended above them.
