It’s ironic that the very thing that can relieve stress for you and your employees and make everyone more productive and efficient at work often causes a great deal of stress due to the logistics of fitting a workout into the middle of a hectic business day.
At the same time, most people can’t drag themselves out of a nice warm bed at 5:00 a.m. to go for a brisk early morning jog. And we’re all just too tired when we finally get off work to face a stair stepper or treadmill at the local fitness center.
But the evidence in favor of exercise continues to mount as study after study finds that people’s moods brighten significantly on days when they work out – reducing stress and significantly improving productivity, which goes straight to your company’s bottom line.
Jog Down the Hall
What’s the solution? For the businesses at Fremont Business Park, it’s easy. Just jog (or take a brisk walk) down the hall in Building 42840 Christy Street to the office complex’s own fitness center. The center is available exclusively for tenants in any building to use before, after – or most importantly – during business hours.
The well-equipped facility has cardio equipment and free weights, as well as men’s and women’s showers and changing rooms. Without the lost time driving to and from an offsite fitness center, employees can get in a good workout and get back to their desks on their lunch hour – or between appointments or conference calls. Even if they exercise during the workday, most employees are willing to come in earlier, stay later, or are just so much more efficient that they more than make up for the time.
This is particularly true for businesses that have clients in Asia or Europe. Employees are often more willing to start work early or stay later to meet with other team members or make presentations to customers overseas, when the long hours don’t mean they will have to miss their workout.
Businesses Jumping at the Chance
Businesses such as CoaguSense, which recently renewed its lease at Fremont Business Park, have cited having an on-site fitness facility as an important amenity for its employees. The emerging growth company, which makes and markets an innovative, home care-monitoring device for patients on extended anticoagulant therapy for blood clots, is able to position the on-site gym as one of the benefits of working for the firm. In an environment where it still remains a challenge to attract high-quality employees, offering an easy way for dedicated people to get their workouts in can be seen as a real plus.
