Published DateTILTON — Working, waiting for your car, and working out for health are all possible now that the AutoServ company of Tilton has put in a state-of-the-art gymnasium above the Quick Service portion of the dealership.
The AutoServ Fitness Center, said owner Donna Hosmer, is to provide their 150 employees plus their customers a place to get some exercise.
"To have a meaningful impact an employer needs to invest in the wellness of their staff," Hosmer said yesterday while giving a tour of the facility.
Sen. Andrew Hosmer said that as the Afforadable Care Act begins phasing in, employers who take an interest in the heath of the employees are likely to see the benefits not only in healthier employees but in reductions and savings in their insurance premiums.
The gymnasium is run by Manager Katie Sokol who is not only a fitness trainer but a clerk in the office.
Along with the standard workout equipment, Sokol has also set a schedule for a "boot camp" kind of a work out.
"It's like being in basic training and I get to be the drill sergeant — but without all the yelling," said Sokol.
The Hosmers said the gym facility is also available to customer and some of the classes held by Sokol will be available to local residents.
