The dealership gym is also available to customers, some of whom come to the Edmond, Okla., store for workouts even if their vehicles aren't in for service.
"To me, anytime you have frequency of visits that's a good thing," Bondy said. "Customers see new product, which helps with new sales and service center retention."
Despite Bondy's good intentions, the gym initially failed to gain traction with employees.
"For most people, the most difficult step in working out is walking through the door," Bondy said. "Maybe they were intimidated to work out at the dealership."
To help employees shed their inhibitions, Bondy offered high-intensity training classes at the dealership gym. What started as six classes a week has mushroomed to 10 classes a week consisting of 40-minute sessions that combine cardiovascular exercises and weightlifting.
The exercise routine frequently spills beyond the gym and includes warmup laps around the vehicle lot, which helps get others at the dealership involved.
After each session, group photos are taken and posted on the dealership's Facebook group page.
About 20 staffers across all departments regularly participate in the program. The employees are using the classes to prepare themselves to participate in a dealership-sponsored team for the St. Jude 5K run.
"There's a lot of team building in these classes," Bondy said.
Executive assistant Kim Malone said the classes have helped her bond with some of the dealership's roughly 100 employees.
"It has made us work as a team, with people that we don't normally work with," Malone said. "It has helped us build camaraderie."
Tiffany Haunschild, who has shed 15 pounds since March, appreciates the convenience of a gym steps from her desk.
"Not many workplaces have a gym to work out in, let alone personal trainers hired to work with you," said Haunschild, the dealership's loaner car administrator. "When you work the hours we do, it doesn't leave a lot of time for other things."
The monthly expense of $2,400 to provide trainers for the class is well worth the investment, Bondy said.
"Healthier employees have fewer visits to the doctor," he said "Anytime you get people involved with physical activity and they lower their blood pressure and lower their weight, they are going to be healthier."
Participants in the group classes have lost 10 to 20 pounds, on average.
Bondy hopes a healthier work force will, over time, help slow the dealership's annual 5 to 10 percent increase in health insurance premiums.
But dampening health care cost inflation isn't the only reason for the program. A healthier work force also means reduced absenteeism and improved productivity.
"When you work out, you release endorphins, and you're happier and less likely to have depression," Bondy said. "I'm sure we are reaping the benefits of that."
For parts adviser Tim Back, the on-site classes have made a visible difference. He quipped, "I went from dad bod to beach bod."
