Recently I've been involved with a number of efforts to marry the traditional fitness center with a larger notion of well-being across the corporate campus and its 24/7 workplace life. In North America the idea of a corporate campus can vary: a single tall building or a cluster in an urban setting, or a suburban campus of lower rise buildings. Both have the single purpose focus of supporting collaborative teams whose “full work/life needs” are designed to be close at hand. This all-encompassing environment, a hallmark of these 21st century “company towns,” entails both wellness and fitness imperatives.
