The BDS Get Fit Challenge

08.28.2014 Articles

July 7th kicked off the start of the first annual BDS Get Fit Challenge! Our Social Steering Committee (SSC) organized a company-wide fitness initiative encouraging employees to try new activities, eat healthier, and get active. Like any BDS challenge, the participants were very competitive and weren’t shy about showcasing their athletic talents, not to mention their will power! Over the 6-week challenge, BDSers lost a collective total of 94 pounds and took 6.3 million steps!

The Get Fit Challenge was created as a competition between employees in the following categories:

Most Steps
Most Events Attended
Highest Percentage of Weight Lost

The SSC planned numerous activities throughout the competition, each focused on maintaining a healthier lifestyle.

  • Wall Sit Contest
  • Basketball Shootout
  • Jump Rope Contest
  • Sky High Sports Social Event
  • Yoga Classes
  • Water Balloon Toss
  • Fitness Trivia Days
  • Healthy Breakfast and Snack Days
  • Fruit Fridays

The competition was a great way to build company morale, enhance camaraderie, and encourage participation in other wellness initiatives.

Congratulations to all of our BDS Get Fit Challenge winners, and a big thank you to all who participated!
