Philadelphia Celebrates Corporate Wellness at Spring Fit Company Challenge

Share Article

Participants from companies in Philadelphia trained and participated in the Fit Company Challenge as part of their worksite 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 May 6, 2017 participants from companies located in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 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, Aerzen USA Corporation took 1st Place overall in the 2017 Spring Challenge. From Aerzen USA team captain & HR Manager Vanessa Barnett, “Aerzen USA is excited to be part of the Fit Company Challenge. By all accounts, the Aerzen participants were tired from the event, but felt great from the exercises. This challenge brings physical and mental wellness into the workplace through company participants and makes us a stronger group.”

Also in their first year competing in the challenge AgroFresh grabbed the 2nd overall spot. From team captain Connor Revord, “Agrofresh had a blast competing at the Fit Company Challenge in Philly! It truly was a valuable team building and fitness experience for everyone. We used the Fit Company Challenge as our company wellness kick starter, and from all the positive buzz around the office, we are excited about the future involvement!”

On event date, personal trainers from SWEAT Fitness (http://www.sweatfitness.com) and Sgt. Nate Fitness (http://www.sgtnatefitness.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 Penn Park, located in downtown Philadelphia.
