The Health and Fitness Options Tenants Want at Work

In this month’s partnership, CPE and Kingsley Associates sought to find out how tenants really feel about the health and fitness options in their offices.

“We’d like a covered area for parked bicycles. Employees have complained that during the day the bicycles get very hot and easily get burned. There is no way to cool them down to be able to get on them to ride home.” —Alpharetta, Ga.

“As discussed with the manager last week, the building puts a lot of emphasis on employee health and employee programs but updates in the gym are needed and they are not too costly.” —Seattle, Wash.

“I think it would be great if we had access to the fitness centers during weekends and holidays. If we were able to badge our access cards during the weekend to workout would be great, no staff would have to be present, just access to the gym.” —Emeryville, Calif.

“The meeting room and fitness center need improvement. The major complains from our employees about the fitness center is the odd layout, lack of exercise machines, and no Wi-Fi access.” —Lithonia, Ga.

“Several members of our office attend the Tuesday fitness class and have developed a close relationship with the instructor over the years. It gives a huge moral boost to our office to be able to attend the class and is definitely the best aspect of our tenant experience!” —Aurora, Colo.

“Many of our new employees are surprised and a bit disappointed to learn that there isn’t a shower and locker room available on site. Bicycle parking needs to be expanded to accommodate the number of bikes now using that space during the summer.” —Denver, Colo.
