Luxury gym keeps San Diego companies Fit

While company-sponsored gym discounts and other healthy perks are sure to attract new hires, the integration of total fitness programs into corporate culture is proving to be a worthy investment for a growing number of business owners.

Not only are healthy employees more efficient and less likely to call in sick, according to a 2013 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study, companies can save a substantial amount of money on health care costs. A recent Harvard Business Review article sites Fortune 500 company Johnson & Johnson as an example. The company saved an estimated $250 million in health care costs by investing in employee wellness from 2000 to 2010.
