Atlanta Companies Take Employee Wellness to the Next Level at the Fit Company Challenge

Share Article

Teams from local companies in Atlanta show the impact of their wellness programs by training for and conquering a 3-course fitness challenge hosted by the Fit Company Institute. The challenge allowed companies to use fitness as a team building activity and highlight the positive impact that living fit has had on them and their companies.

On April 30, 2016 participants from companies located in the Atlanta area took part in the Fit Company Challenge, a corporate wellness event hosted by the Fit Company Institute providing area companies an opportunity to show the importance of living a fit and healthy lifestyle. Participants worked in teams of 3 to 4 towards completing a variety of fitness stations tailored to challenge the team member’s current fitness level and earn points towards their company’s overall score.

At the first inaugural event in Atlanta, Videa took the top company spot in this year’s Large Team division. “I’m proud of team Videa for highlighting our company’s focus on healthy, active lifestyles in winning the Fit Company Challenge,“ said Shereta Williams, President of Videa. “Everyone showed up with enthusiasm, had a great time and finished strong despite some challenging moments. It was a fantastic team building experience and we look forward to participating in future challenges.”

Aeon Global Health took the top spot in the Medium Team division, and Tara Carney, Director of Marketing was thrilled to get the team out for an event that mixed team building with fitness. “Aeon Global Health had such a great time participating in the Fit Company Challenge in Atlanta. We had been looking for team building opportunities so this was a perfect fit for us. As a healthcare company, we strive to be a fit and healthy organization. Our employees had great fun and look forward to next time! Go Team Aeon!!”

On event date, with the help of over 20 volunteers assisting the contenders, participants challenged their strength, conditioning, power, agility, and ended with a test of endurance in order to show their companies and colleagues that they practice what they preach. Participants used their involvement to bring out company team members, and family members to cheer them on and promote the importance of having fun and effective corporate wellness programs at their companies.

The challenge was held at Georgia Tech, a short drive from downtown Atlanta, Georgia.
