Our employees’ health and well-being is important to us, so we make sure that they – and their families – have access to facilities and programs promoting fitness, wellness and recreation. That’s why our headquarters campus has 28 acres dedicated to the physical fitness of employees (and that doesn’t include the jogging trails!). Best of all – it’s free to employees and their eligible family members.  

Our recreation and fitness amenities came about like many of our other campus perks – organically and centered around our employees. Today, the Recreation and Fitness Center (RFC) provides over 1,500 classes and programs each year, ranging from Zumba to Pickleball lessons!

Our Building G Complex is the heart of recreation and fitness at SAS, spanning four buildings with space for workout programs, wellness classes, sports and leisure activities in addition to a natatorium. It’s an impressive space!  

The main building includes basketball, volleyball, and racquetball courts along with a strength and cardio room.

Yoga, anyone?

And we can’t forget about the natatorium! Our 10-lane pool is the perfect place to get a few laps in, and the Wednesday morning Water Aerobics class is definitely a fan favorite!

The fitness fun doesn’t end there – our outdoor recreation facilities have just as much to offer. Participants of all fitness levels can improve their strength, balance and flexibility on our TRX platform.

The RFC also provides dedicated spaces where employees can relax and rejuvenate not only their bodies, but their minds and spirits too, including a wellness room, Mind/Body studio and outside on the meditation platform.

These offerings give employees the opportunity to recharge their creative batteries and come back to work refreshed and productive. We’re proud to support our employees’ well-being, and our fitness and recreation offerings are just one way to create social connections and encourage physical wellness.
