Making Corporate Fitness Accessible
Corporations are getting employees moving with on-site workout facilities and custom fitness programming that pays for itself in employee engagement and worker morale.
If you can build and create an attractive fitness space in or around your office, and schedule exercise time around your employees’ work schedules, business owners actually help make consistent and convenient exercise part of the normal workday – and very much contribute to the health and morale of your employees.
Original fitness centers with personal trainers and a slew of cardio machines had certainly made way for on-site yoga studios, compact weight stations and access to local courts.
Increase Employee Health and Morale
Despite economic challenges, the demand for on-site facility fitness opportunities is continuing to increase, according to Corporate Wellness Magazine. If you’re considering a new exercise space in your office, it probably falls directly on your company’s capital to recreate tight spaces, so budget, footage obstacles and security will contribute to the creation of your ultimate corporate wellness areas.
When regular exercise amenities enter the picture – including personal training and group fitness classes – your office exercise facility may also significantly increase worker performance and concentration with stress relief classes like yoga, tai chi and meditation programming.
Think Exercise Quality, Not Quantity
The ultimate goal is to help make working out convenient and accessible for all of your customers and residents. Design staples typically include an inviting setting, natural light and a variety of equipment options at the hub of your corporate wellness center.

By far, the most upgraded community-wide amenity since 2014 has been the multi-family fitness center. Recent research finds that 46 percent of tenants are willing to pay a premium for complexes that have group fitness classes – in addition to on-site gyms. Top-notch, customized exercise equipment can vastly improve tenant interactions and a sense of community in your multi-family apartment or condo complex. Having a friendly, uncluttered neighborhood fitness center is also priceless for municipal relations.
As you’ve probably recognized, the modern family fitness center has changed dramatically over the last 25 years – and an ancient, drab ill-equipped multi-family exercise space is a serious obstacle to any apartment complex’s appeal. Tenants can head next door.
