The program would be suited for the company. Would you pay for a personal trainer who is fat?
In general, a part of me agrees, and a part disagrees. The BMI is not accurate, and does not account for muscular weight.

I think it's a great idea. Whole Foods as an employer should really only have employees who enjoy, are passionate about, and personally partake in nutrition and health. There are plenty of other jobs out of shape people can work in. I love working out and eating right, and I would absolutely love to take a job at Whole Foods that some fat/out of shape person probably hates and is miserable in. Not to mention, such a discount would really help me out. I mean, why work at Whole Foods if you hate being healthy? That's like working at Best Buy and hating electronics. Or working at a butchery and being a vegetarian. Or being a veterinarian and hating animals. Or moving to Jamaica and hating marijuana. etc etc. u know what i mean. It's like one other person said, you don't want a personal trainer that's fat. It's time for America to wake up. You can't exercise with video games and you can't diet with Taco Bell. I really don't understand why people put up such a fuss about fitness, unless it's for financial reasons. In which case, fat Whole Foods employees, get in shape and take advantage of that discount!
