The National Treasury is looking for an operator of its new members-only luxury gym and spa. The multi-million shilling facility is located at the Treasury’s Bima House headquarters along Harambee Avenue in Nairobi.
The gym is stationed on the 13th floor. According to the Treasury, it is intended “for use by members of staff for the purpose of keeping fit, bonding and team building.”
It will be free of charge for staff, with around 250 to 300 people expected to use it every day. It includes a well-equipped gym with equipment including weights, as well as a spa and sauna.
Services to be offered include aerobic and anaerobic exercises, physiotherapy, nutritional training, self-defence, steam bath and sauna. The gym will also offer massages.
Members will also enjoy field and outside training, team building and bonding, boot camp and “any other physical fitness that will be deemed appropriate such as the Japanese Kendama game.”

The gym is intended to operate between 5:00 am and 9:00 pm on weekdays, and between 8:00 am to 3:00 pm on weekends and public holidays.
“To make the health facility operational, the National Treasury is looking for a service provider who will offer professional and expert training in the hitherto stated areas and further maintain the machines and equipment,” The Treasury noted.
According to the Treasury, the facility will enable staff to relax, unwind and relieve stress.
The move to open the gym comes amid an austerity push touted by President William Ruto. Ministries and government department’s haven’t reined in expenditure on items considered non-essential despite Ruto’s stated commitment for his administration to find savings of Ksh300 billion annually.
At the same time, public discontent has been growing over the expenditure of public funds and increasing allocations to public offices. The appointment of 50 Chief Administrative Secretaries (CASs), for instance, has drawn widespread uproar over its impact on the public wage bill.
