Asheville Celebrates Corporate Wellness at Spring Fit Company Challenge

Share Article

Participants from companies in Asheville 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 27, 2017 participants from companies located in the Asheville North Carolina 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 second year competing in the challenge Phenix Research Products moved up from 2nd place in the medium division in 2016 to 1st place in the medium division in 2017. From 2nd year team member Philip Wikoff, “The 2016 Fit Company Challenge left an indelible, inspiring mark on all of us who entered from Phenix. For the 2017 Challenge, Phenix opened a gym facility in-house, ramped up our conditioning, and entered over half the company in the Challenge. We even lived to boast about it the next day. Bring on 2018!”

On event date, personal trainers from Hard Exercise Works (http://www.hardexerciseworks.com) and Blue Ridge Crossfit (http://www.blueridgecrossfit.com) assisted teams through the various courses. 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 UNC Asheville, located a short drive from downtown Asheville, North Carolina.
