Why are onsite fitness centers important?

Onsite fitness centers are a prime perk for many U.S. companies. Employee gyms help improve health and reduce risk of disease. Strive provides fitness center design and development nationwide. These onsite fitness centers help companies attract and retain talent. Onsite fitness centers provide convenience – which 40-45% of employees say is their primary reason for using it. Employees reap holistic wellness benefits, like social connection and stress management.

Reasons for offering an onsite fitness center are clear:


  • Help attract employees
  • Encourage fitness participation
  • Yield measurable health and fitness results

Onsite employee fitness centers can be one of the most important aspects of a corporate wellness program. This facility often serves as the centerpiece of your entire initiative. It’s a place where employees access exercise classes, health coaching, nutritional services, stress management programs, and more.

One report found 75% of employees want a personal touch from their employer wellness programs. They like having access to Health Coaching or Onsite Personal Fitness. Being able to talk with experts for advice, coaching, and guidance. Employee gyms provide this access, and more.
