Avila Spaces includes 6 months of free gym in all Coworking plans

Avila Spaces, a leading Business Centre of innovation in the flexible workspaces market in Portugal, has launched a program that consists of providing gym attendance for six months to the current and future clients of Avila Spaces located at Av. da República, in Lisbon.

This partnership with Fitness Park, located at Av. Defensores de Chaves, nearby Saldanha, answers an increasing need to include leisure activities and physical exercise in the employees’ daily routine, as a way to prevent stress of hundreds of professionals, who must return to their usual place of work this month, and a sedentary lifestyle.

In general terms, and according to the Barometer on Teleworking developed in June by Avila Spaces, working remotely has proved positive, however it was somehow imposed on everyone by COVID-19. Isolation was considered one of the main disadvantages, and the "hybrid work model" became the new standard which has led many companies to place employees in corporate coworking spaces as an  alternative to the "home office" and the traditional office.  

"In this context of uncertainty and economic crisis, and after five months working from home - not always under adequate conditions - it is essential that companies consider investing in actions that promote mental health and aim at improving their team’s emotional balance. In August, we organised yoga and meditation activities in our terrace, and we were quite surprised at the level of support of our members", says Carlos Gonçalves, CEO of Avila Spaces.

Fitness Park acts as a "Boutique Gym" that focuses on technology and service customization. It is very much in line with the business model and the values of Avila Spaces, while ensuring thorough compliance with all quality, hygiene, and safety requirements, which are essential in this new context.

In Avila Spaces' coworking, monthly values range from 150€ to 350€ plus VAT, and the offer of gym sessions for 6 months is included in all packages.

In September, further activities on Health and Well-being will take place, namely lectures on food, nutrition, mindfulness, ergonomics, and coaching.
