Can't speak to the glitzy NYC stuff, but my office building has a gym and it's subsidized by our firm if you want a membership. Previous firms I've worked at have had a gym in the building, but not specifically our office. Sounds like an HR nightmare waiting to happen if anything. I'm sure most WSO monkeys use the gym in their own residence first. I know that's what I do.

Yeah that's the one where my friend is! The only thing I can add to my previous comment is that they have an amazing milk selection in the fridge - very random I know (think about soy, oat, almond, etc)

Arroz con Pollo, what's your opinion? Comment below:

First job I had was awful, but the gym was hardcore in the basement. Power racks, hex bars / barbells, and old rusty plates and dumbbells going to 125lbs. T-Bar row, all the good weight machines, all old hardcore Hammer Strength stuff that was down there for decades. Only negative was they played loud ass pop music, and this was before airpod pros existed. My company was the only one in the building. Also had StairMasters, yoga room, and cycle room.

Second job had a nice gym that was shared by all office tenants. Never got crowded, but it was the typical smith machine style. Had DB's to 100 but they had plastic handles. Cardio machines were nice.

Third job has a gym but I never have used it. Seems very basic like a hotel gym from pictures, and I live near the office so just lift at my apartment.

Some are just similar to a hotel gym, ie cable machine a few benches and free weights

if you're lucky you'll have barbell, plates, and fitness classes. Also love office gyms because am usually the biggest guy in there while at many commercial gyms i go to DYEL mode

Feels great when you can bench more than your MD and get to show it off in front of him every day
