It’s true that the post-pandemic workforce has probably changed forever. According to recent stats, 35% of the current workforce is still working remotely full-time and a significant chunk of employees are working a hybrid schedule. As we know, this is presenting all sorts of challenges to HR leaders who are working hard to engage an increasingly disjointed workforce.

However, one place where employees are open to more in-person interaction is at the gym — specifically, the corporate gym. At HealthFitness, we’ve seen an uptick in the number of our clients’ employees actively using personal and group training since the pandemic starting waning. And — here’s the surprising part — most of that is happening in-person at corporate fitness centers across the country. Eighty-six percent, to be exact (on the flip side just 5% of those personal and group training sessions are held virtual-only).

What’s more, employees are participating in an increasing number of these personal or group training sessions. Seventy-seven percent of our corporate client employees are signing up for 4 to 8 personal or group training sessions per month! That’s a big commitment — but employees are making it. And again, they’re largely doing it in-person.
