Share Article

The real yoga men of ACI Specialty Benefits have been nominated for a Benefits Innovation and Inspiration award.

ACI's Daniel Hwang, Josh Tiernan, and Ryan Fay practice Broga at the onsite yoga studio.

ACI’s Chief Sales Officer Thomas Lee can now do upside-down pull-ups against a rope wall and social media specialist Anthony Shideler turned his tears of pain into tears of joy.

The men at ACI love Broga – yoga for ‘bros’ – and they’ve got the skin-tight tank tops and award nomination to prove it.

Weekly onsite Broga classes where “it’s okay not to touch your toes,” have become a big hit at ACI Specialty Benefits. IT Manager Ryan Fay dropped 40 pounds over the course of a year with regular Broga classes and healthier lifestyle choices and says, “I’ve discovered muscles I never knew I had.” ACI’s Chief Sales Officer Thomas Lee can now do upside-down pull-ups against a rope wall and social media specialist Anthony Shideler turned his tears of pain into tears of joy, and now enjoys effortlessly wrapping his fingers around his toes.

“I play baseball and some other sports,” said Shideler, “but I never thought of myself as a flexible person before Broga.”

“Broga: Getting Real Mean to do Yoga” is nominated for a Benefits Innovation and Inspiration award through Employee Benefit News. The public can see their inspirational story and vote Broga by liking them on Facebook. Votes can be cast once per day through June 25, 2013.

ACI’s Broga YouTube video offers a sneak peek into the state-of-the-art onsite yoga studio and the real men that do yoga there. The full Broga story is also featured on ACI’s Blog “Broga Banter: Do Real Men Do Yoga?”
