Greater DC Area Celebrates Corporate Wellness at Spring Fit Company Challenge

Share Article

Participants from companies in the Greater DC Area 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 June 3, 2017 participants from companies located in the Greater DC 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, Rigil took 1st Place overall in the 2017 Spring Challenge. From Rigil team captain Eric Anderson, “Rigil enjoyed the opportunity to come together as a team to promote fitness within our company and continue to build our corporate culture."

Also in their first year competing in the challenge Research Innovations grabbed the 2nd overall spot. From team captain Erin Fristoe, “The DC Fit Company Challenge really gave us a chance to push our limits physically while getting the opportunity to work closer with colleagues that we might not interact with as much on a day to day basis. We've already started strategizing for next year!”

On event date, athletic trainers 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 West Potomac Park, located in downtown Washington, DC.
