Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) December 20, 2007
City Center Square, a Kansas City office building, located in the heart of the Power & Light District, added fitness classes to its list of luxury amenities. The office building's on-site fitness center, located on the main level, is complete with state-of-the-art strength equipment, free weights, elliptical machines, treadmills and now offers a variety of classes from yoga to boot camp.
Phillip Gesue, director of acquisitions and development for Time Equities Inc., the company that owns City Center Square, says that health and fitness seem to be an indulgence these days. "A healthy lifestyle should be as seamless to your day as your morning coffee, but it's not. That's why having a fitness center at City Center Square was a must. Luxury amenities are why people enjoy working in a building like this. It's an urban sanctuary," said Gesue.

Corporate fitness programs are a growing trend in the workplace. Fiscally savvy businesses are taking advantage of this money saving opportunity to lower health care costs by promoting physical fitness among their staff. Additional benefits that come with a physically fit staff include less stress and increased productivity. According to an article in The New York Times, more than a quarter of large companies offer things like fitness coaching and discounts on health club memberships (July 22, 2007).
According to Casandra Reed, an arobics instructor at City Center Square, corporate fitness classes are a great way for employees to get involved in a regular workout routine while getting to know co-workers or other people in the building. "Overall, exercise decreases your stress level and makes you feel good about yourself. When you feel good, you project that to everyone you talk to."
City Center Square is an office retail building locally managed by Grubb & Ellis, The Winbury Group. Tenants range from the Kansas City Convention & Visitors Association to the Kansas City Business Journal. Office space is available and can be customized to accommodate tenants' needs. Prime location, parking availability and facility upgrades make City Center Square an optimal choice for businesses that want to be part of the new entertainment district.
