Atlanta Celebrates Corporate Wellness at Spring Fit Company Challenge

Share Article

Participants from companies in Atlanta trained and participated in the Fit Company Challenge as part of their work site wellness programs. The challenge allowed companies to use fitness as a team building activity and highlight the positive impact that living healthy has had on them and their companies.

On April 29, 2017 participants from companies located in the Atlanta Georgia area took part in the Fit Company Challenge, a corporate wellness event hosted by the Fit Company Institute. The challenge provided area companies an opportunity to come together as a team and spend a morning exercising, pushing their physical and mental limits and showing the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. Companies split their team into squads of 3 to 4 people who worked together to complete a variety of fitness stations to challenge their fitness level and earn points for their company. Teams chose what level to go through each course which allowed participants of all fitness levels to push their physical fitness without going too far out of their comfort zone.

In their first time participating, Brenau University took 1st Place overall in the 2017 Spring Challenge. Brenau University Team Captain Kelley Maddox was excited about their accomplishment and participating in the event. From Kelley Maddox, “Not only are events like the Fit Company Challenge designed to help employees learn about and make healthy lifestyle choices it also brings our community together and helps to compliment a better work-family balance. This was our first year participating in an event such as this. We have had much positive feedback and we will definitely be competing again next year. So proud of all of our participants!!”

Also in their first year competing in the challenge Transwestern grabbed the 2nd overall spot. From Transwestern team captain Hillary Miles, “The Fit Company challenge pushed our team to our limits but through working together and cheering each other through we landed in 2nd place and had a great time doing it. Fit Company was so easy to work with and we look forward to participating next year!”

On event date, fitness trainers from Catalyst Fitness (http://www.catalystfitness.com) assisted teams through the various courses as participants challenged their strength, conditioning, power, agility, and ended with a test of endurance 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, located a short drive from downtown Atlanta.
