The City of London is recognized by many as the cultural and financial capital of the entire world. The city was established by the Romans two millennia ago under its original name of Londinium. The city grew to become the seat of the largest empire in history during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, spreading the seeds of republican government, empiricism, and political pluralism throughout the world. Today, London is known not only as a great metropolis but one of the most widely visited destinations on the planet, with many World Heritage Sites that include the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, and the Houses of Parliament.
For many years, London has maintained its position as having the most expensive commercial real estate in the world. Three quarters of all the companies in the Fortune 500 have physical offices located in the City of London. Remarkable skyscrapers have risen over London in the last decade, including The Shard, HSBC Tower, and 30 St Mary Axe, better known as The Gherkin. Major infrastructure projects are transforming the city as well, including renovations to Heathrow Airport and investments in High Speed Two and Crossrail. The recent referendum narrowly favoring "Brexit" has called into question London's centrality in world markets, but commercial real estate shows no sign of slowing down.
In a busy metropolis, with minimal space allocated to individual workers, employers need building amenities that allow the workforce to restore their health and alleviate their stress. A corporate fitness center can benefit all your employees by providing a physical space from which to provide wellness services, such as biometric screenings, dietetic counseling, and flu shots. Let LifeStart show you how easy it can be to create an on-site fitness center in your building.
