Many employees may already be a member of their local gym but struggle to use it due to working hours. Having a gym at work allows them to work out but at a time that suits them.

A healthier workforce will lead to fewer days off sick bringing clear business benefits. Back pain for example, one of the biggest causes of absenteeism in the UK, can be improved by working out core muscle groups and losing weight.
- Attraction and Retention
Having a work gym could be an attractive prospect to a potential employee improving your overall image in the marketplace and differentiating you from competitors. It may also encourage more employees to stay with you as they see the investment you are making in their well being.
- Improved Productivity
Employees who use the workplace gym will have improved energy levels and better productivity and concentration.
- Improved Morale
Installing a gym in the workplace is an active way to show employees that you are investing in them. This will have a positive effect on morale and general attitudes in the workplace.
How Can We Help You?
If you are going to set up a gym in your workplace you need to ensure that the money you spend will bring you the good commercial returns we allude to above. With this in mind our consultancy service will work with you to deliver 5 key things:
- Understanding Your Needs
It is essential that we understand your business, how many employees do you have? What sort of hours do they work? How long could they spend in the gym? From this we can design a bespoke gym that is right for your business.
- Maximising Your Space
Depending on the space you have it is key that the gym we develop is functional for the space you have. You don’t want your gym to look either overcrowded or simply empty. We will put together a gym design for you that properly uses the space you have. In addition we will look at the possibility of installing staff changing rooms and shower facilities.
- Intelligent Equipment Selection
Ensuring that the gym is popular and is used by employees depends upon the right choice of gym equipment. Once we understand your business and needs we will select the equipment that best meets the brief.
- Clear Budgeting and Project Management
We will guide you as to the budget you will need based on your preferred gym design and will ensure that your budget is well managed. Alongside this you will receive a project management plan so that you are clear about time scales, communication and key delivery dates.
- Strong Technical Expertise
We will advise you on what we believe employees most want from a workplace gym based on our experience in this area. This will encompass advice on the gym equipment itself but also other aspects such as the lighting, flooring and heating of your gym and the overall creation of a stimulating gym environment.
The success of this project is all about getting the design and equipment right. But we also need to ensure that employees actively use the facility so that as an employer you see the benefits. What may put some employees off is that some may never have used a gym before or may be unsure how to use the equipment. Our unique relationship with the NRPT, The National Register of Personal Trainers means that we can put a personal trainer into your gym at the beginning to ensure that your employees know how to safely use all equipment and are motivated to use the facility.
