Fan is blowing cool air while fast rock music pounds out from the loudspeakers. 100 pull-ups in a day, an indoor bike session in the midst of a workday, deadlifts between meetings – sounds crazy, right? No this is just a day in the office at Crazy Town Jyväskylä. Business as usual, as they say.
“Strength training makes stronger people in every aspect, not only in physical sense.”
There are many ways to lighten up a stressful workday and tune one’s alertness. Crazy Town is an image of the people working there; all feedback is carefully considered, and all suggestions for improved welcomed. Every member can choose a way to relax in the midst of a workday that suits them best. Crazy Town Jyväskylä is a modern coworking office environment right at the Center of Jyväskylä. The Crazy Town chain operates in the six biggest cities, offering a versatile working environment for companies operating in a variety of sectors.
On the upper floor of Crazy Town Jyväskylä, one can find Ranta – an oasis for workplace wellbeing. The space was founded in cooperation with Elo and Fennia. It is also the place where the Nordic Rack workstation is located. It provides a platform for efficient working as well as no-holds-barred lifting sessions during a workday. Conference calls and video calls on the other side of the globe while riding a stationary bike are standard procedures at Crazy Town Jyväskylä.
“A good workday is made possible by tools that fit the task at hand – good ergonomics, lighting and quiet environment.”
A demanding training session isn’t always the right choice to increase one’s alertness and thinking. Sometimes a simple moment of relaxation that’s provided by the green room interior and immaculate sound from the Genelec speakers is all that’s needed.
“We want to support wellbeing at the workplace by providing different workstations that cater for every need and personal preference. The nordic rack provides a modern twist to the office environment and open possibilities for maintaining an optimal arousal level that wasn’t available before. It’s super easy to use; just a few seconds of relaxation-inducing hanging make a big difference, just as well as intense indoor cycling bouts or barbell-loaded squats. These are all things that are part of the daily business at Crazy Town Jyväskylä,” says Sandra Suomäki, Community Manager at Crazy Town Jyväskylä.
