  • How it has helped

    There’s a saying that couples who sweat together stay together. I think it’s just as true that companies that sweat together stay together. Over the years, the culture of fitness in our office has grown with the enthusiasm of new employees and taken on a life of its own. Our staff has included ultramarathoners who run 50 miles at a stretch, elite cyclists and triathletes, personal trainers, avid rowers and sailors, yogis and hardcore hikers and, of course, lots of people like me who just like a good workout from time to time.

  • Metrics Improved

    Time management skills, mental performance and ability to meet deadlines improved on the days they exercised.

  • Vital Ingredient

    Having the right workplace culture is far more important.

  • What small companies can do

    It doesn’t take much to bring fitness into the workplace: a little space, a few pieces of equipment, willingness to embrace some sweat and exertion. But the impact can be surprising.

  • What larger, more established companies can do

    At the end of the day, it’s not the type of exercise that matters so much as providing a space in the workplace where fitness can thrive.
