The fitness center capability provides onsite facility management, consulting, facility design, and program promotion.

Marathon Health President Charles D. Reuter commented on the importance of integrating onsite health services with a fitness center offering. "In addition to the access and convenience of providing these services at work, we can now provide a personalized, medically-based fitness program that is coordinated with the overall care plan for the individual. The capability is so much more than treadmills; it is about keeping healthy people healthy and providing increased options for those who would benefit from increased activity levels."

The consolidation of health and fitness center management and staffing provides improved coordination between care and fitness programs as well as savings and productivity gains.
