It would be a reasonably secluded area near the tea where you can do some stretching exercises while waiting for the kettle to boil or your 3D print to finish.

The area would have a couple of yoga mats, perhaps a stock of resistance bands and some posters of exercises.

I've just had a couple of sessions of sports physio to deal with slightly bad back from too much seated programming. (I wanted to deal with it before it got properly bad).

I got some simple exercises that I'm supposed to keep doing -- even when it's no longer hurting (common mistake: stopping the exercises when it stops hurting).

If popular, we could get one of those big balls and add some lasers, check-in timers (so you can't kid yourself about what you're doing), orientation sensors and EMG muscle sensor tech.

+1 from me. I would like to perhaps do some meditation sessions with people from time to time there.

Changed title from "permanent" to "pop-up", which is actually more what I had in mind.
For example, the materials (mat, weights, bands) would be stowed on a shelf near to a bit of floor where they could be rolled out. So maybe it could be stowed near, or in the corner of, one of the meeting rooms. The main point is that the stuff would be shared (which means we could have better stuff), and that doing such exercises should be normalized.
