Worksite Fitness, LLC Opens in Menands

The Chamber took part in the ribbon cutting for Worksite Fitness, LLC in Menands.  The Chamber was joined by local elected officials, Ambassadors, family and friends.

Worksite Fitness is owned and operated by Marine Veteran, Capital Region Native, and Syracuse alumnus Ben Brickman. The business is the latest corporate wellness startup entity in the region.

Worksite Fitness is not a gym, as many have all come to know gyms, and Ben is not a personal trainer––the experience is somewhere in between; offering easily accessible and relatable fitness regimens to help make people healthier. He has a workout space, and partners with companies to offer affordable fitness options to employees. He’s not an app that merely counts calories; he is a human person to help coach and direct people towards their health goals.

Ben sees his company as a way to help bridge the gap in the current workforce shortage. Being realistic, not everyone built a home gym in their basement when the pandemic struck, and this change in health can be a barrier for people looking to return to work. Ben wants to make it easier for companies to offer health and fitness as a “perk” to returning to work.

His mission is to make fitness easily accessible to as many people as possible by overcoming the barriers to fitness which include convenience, experience, and price, and to meet their fitness goals where they work.

All ribbon cuttings are sponsored by Saratoga National Bank and Trust Company.
