The fitness center in our corporate headquarters is quickly becoming an increasingly popular benefit for our team members, and for good reason. The benefit of regular exercise is well-documented, and the convenience of having a gym in work can make it easier for employees to prioritize their health and fitness. Our gym is well-maintained and has all the equipment needed to help our teammates to meet their fitness and well-being goals for 2023 and beyond.
While there are multiple benefits to having a gym in the workplace, here a few reasons why our team members find it convenient and helpful:
Improved Health and Wellbeing: Regular exercise has been linked to numerous health benefits, including a reduced risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes, improved mental health, and increased longevity. By having a fitness center at ACI, our employees can more easily incorporate exercise into their daily routine, leading to improved overall health, increased mental well-being, and lowered insurance costs.
Increased Productivity: Sitting behind your desk for hours on end isn’t just unhealthy, it can lead to mental errors and mistakes. Short periods of exercise or increased activity have been shown to increase cognitive function and productivity. Providing our team members the opportunity to exercise during their workday helps to increase focus and productivity, which not only benefits them but the entire team as well.
Reduced Stress: Exercise has been shown to be an effective way to reduce stress, which can have a positive impact on mental health and overall well-being. The ACI fitness center gives our employees the opportunity to take a break from their work and engage in physical activity, which can help to reduce stress, promote relaxation, and improve the entire workplace environment.
Improved Work-Life Balance: One of the biggest challenges many of our teammates face is balancing work with other aspects of their life, such as family and personal commitments. Because the ACI fitness center is centrally located, employees can more easily prioritize their health and fitness, without sacrificing time with their loved ones.
