Exercising at Work

Does the Company You Work For Encourage Exercise?

A close friend of mine was raving last night about her new job. Not about the fun people she works with, or the exciting work she's accomplishing. Oh no. She was going crazy for all the ways her company encourages its workers to be healthy. Get this — they have a gym in her office building complete with treadmills, ellipticals, free weights, and a flat-screen TV to watch the news. And there is also a room next door called the Zen Den, where the company brings in fitness instructors for yoga and Pilates. There are even showers there, so people can clean up after getting all sweaty. I'm totally jealous! What about your company? Does it encourage you to work out regularly by offering space in your building, free gym memberships, or flexible hours so you can leave work to exercise?
