Gym During Lunch

I work at a company where lunch is provided, but there is no company gym.

Is it okay to go to the gym during lunch?

It seems like lunch is provided to keep employees from leaving, and that I’d be abusing this perk, but it’s the most convenient time for me.

    2 rules:

    Work out in something other than a polo or traditional garb. Use the clothing dedicated to this activity.

    Clean your workout station after exercise.

      In my complex, the concept of showering before a workout seems unconscionable. So many dirty asses.

      Holy shit I used to work with someone who didn't shower after they worked out. No, wearing a sweatshirt doesn't cover up the smell. Shower!

    Are you serious with this question? Can you not do with and manage your own time as you see fit as an adult? Produce results and nobody cares when/where you eat or workout.

    In fact if this is a serious question and how your work environment is your #1 focus should be finding a new job immediately.

      Yeah I should do that.

      A bit worried asking would demonstrate I don’t care that much about my work.

      Eh I wouldn’t worry too much about that. Idk what the culture is like over there but it doesn’t seem like an unreasonable request to me.

    Is amazon REALLY that bad where you’re worried about being reprimanded for going to the gym for an hour during lunch?

    I think at Amazon, many people work over 12 hours. It should be fine to work out around noon.

    I have a gym at work and workout out at lunch everyday for over an hour. It's my only way to manage back pain/injury and stay alert and productive all day.

    Just workout during lunch and bring your lunch to desk post workout. If someone asks, simply say you took lunch break.

    I encourage my team to work out at lunch , if they want to. Productivity and focus is higher after workout.
