The combined costs of sickness absence and "presenteeism" (showing up for work but performing below par) are estimated at over £26bn each year in the UK alone!
A recent paper produced by the TUC (Trade Union Congress) suggests that a healthy workforce can reduce employee absence and boost productivity. In it, they also suggest that employers might try to encourage a healthier attitude amongst employees by providing an on-site gym or subsidised membership of a fitness facility.
Many papers have been written on the benefits to be gained by a company whose employees are encouraged to exercise and to eat nutritiously and it is agreed that healthier employees are less likely to call in sick or use vacation time due to illness. These papers also conclude that companies that support workplace health have a greater percentage of employees at work every day.

The cost of gym memberships continues to rise and now averages about £516.00 for a 12 month membership per person, according to the FIA (The Fitness Industry Association).
Many people cannot afford to spend this amount of money to stay fit and healthy and see the gym as a luxury.
Only 12% of the population says that they go to a gym on a regular basis and this could be attributed partly to the cost but also to apathy, time restraints, embarrassment and self consciousness.
