Exercise and eating right made easy

From left, Jon and Rich from the Airport Authority's Marketing Department and Steve from its Noise Mitigation Department break a sweat in the new employee gym at San Diego International Airport.

A year ago, I wrote about the Airport Authority’s employee Fitness Focus Program and how those of us who work for the Airport Authority can rack up redeemable points-for-prizes through physical activity.  A year later, we’re not only going strong, but we’ve really kicked into high gear!

What better way to get into shape than doing so at work?  Never fear, excuse-makers:  if you can’t get to a gym, it has come to you!  As part of staff relocations that facilitate our ongoing Green Build improvements, the second floor of the Commuter Terminal was recently finished out as employee workspace, and these new digs feature a workout room complete with machines and free weights.

If you’d prefer the great outdoors, there are employees who make the rounds through the airport and Harbor Island along mapped walking routes, particularly during their lunch breaks.

Stationary bikes ... with a view of the airfield.

And speaking of eating, isn’t that the complement to fitness activity?  Fear not, that’s covered, too!  The Airport Authority offers employees the option of participating in a community-supported agriculture (CSA) program that provides locally grown, organic fruits and vegetables to participating subscribers.  This semimonthly service delivers right to the Airport Authority and comes courtesy of J. R. Organics, a fourth-generation farm in Valley Center.

And should you fear about indulging a little too much when you eat, the Airport Authority even has on-site meetings of Weight Watchers to help staff maintain a healthy balance in personal nutrition.

Recently, the San Diego Business Journal gave the Airport Authority fourth place in a competition of 50 finalists for the region’s healthiest employer, in the medium-size organization category.  Regardless of any awards, the Airport Authority is aiming to be number one in the health of its employees!

With all that we offer, what more could you ask for?  Massages?  Well, word is that Human Resources is looking into that option too!  Stay tuned … and stay healthy!

Special thanks to Sharon in the Marketing Department for taking the gym pictures.
