    Are there any centers out there with a gym with weights and other equipment? Every large company in my city has an employee gym except for our company.

    We have a basketball court. That's about it.
  3. In my building the "gym" was next to the executive dinning room, across from our pool and golf course. Why do you need a gym when all you need to do is ask for 50 more stops or a couple more feeders to least you will be getting paid to work out!

    Always a smartass!!
  5. Sorry, no disrespect intended. At one time our building did have a basketball court, volleyball and even a work out room. The employee's repeatedly damaged the equipment. They hung on the rims, slashed the basketballs. The workout room formerly was an employee breakroom..that to was trashed. Then people got hurt playing these games...and the liability was a problem. I'm happy to have a clean place were I can get a coffee, maybe a decent sandwich. Not many of our buildings have this or the space even if they could. Have you read the threads on our restrooms and locker areas. Animal house!
    By the way, our hub doubles as a day care!
  6. We don't have a gym because the work itself is a workout.

    Get creative, shoulder-press an over 70, curl a 30 lb small box, you get the idea

    Asking if this company provides perks is laughable.

    we don't even get turkeys anymore, you think they'll spend big bucks on fitness equipment? Oh they encourage us to be healthy, but do little more than words of encouragement to back it up.

    To quote Lee Corso "Not so fast my friend.". The Sprint discount is pretty awesome. Got my whole family in on the deal. I myself did it for years, but just counting since I got my whole family involved we have saved probably around $600 since I roped everyone in.
