Tower Federal Credit Union has made it even easier for staffers to make time for exercise.
The Laurel, Md.-based credit union has unveiled its new on-site fitness facility available to all staffers. The new fitness facility is equipped with an elliptical machine, treadmill, two stationary bikes, large flat-screen TV, yoga mats, fitness balls and free weights.
The facility is just the latest addition to Tower FCU's Wealth of Wellness program designed to promote and reward healthy lifestyles.
Tower staffers earn wellness points by attending fitness classes and health-related events like a Wellness Fair. To make exercise convenient, Tower hosts on-site cardio, yoga and strength training classes for employees. Points are also awarded for regular dental check-ups and physical exams. Employees who accumulate a certain number of points receive a contribution from Tower FCU to their flexible spending account, which can be used to pay for health care expenses.
