Our new office challenge will get employees throughout Philadelphia working for better health.

On your mark, get set, go! It’s the Indy 500 of weight loss challenges, and it’s happening right here in Philadelphia. This summer, my company is teaming up with Philadelphia Magazine to launch a new get-fit office challenge.

Here’s how it’s going to work: Teams of ten employees from four different offices will compete to lose the most total pounds and improve their overall wellness. To help them through the process, we’re giving them a free eight-week gym membership and tons of nutrition and healthy lifestyle tips from some of Philly’s top health and fitness experts. The winners will earn the coveted title of Philly’s Fittest Office!

And because we want the winners of our “Be Well Philly Office Challenge” to keep up their new, healthier lifestyles, the grand prize is jam-packed with health and fitness gifts from local businesses. The prize includes a free year membership to Sweat Fitness, makeovers from Joseph Anthony Retreat Spa and Salon, Zoom! teeth whitening from Pennsylvania Center for Dental Excellence, new workout gear and much more.

What’s so great about this contest is that the team named Philly’s Fittest Office isn’t the only winner in the end. Everyone who competes has the chance to reap the benefits of adopting healthier eating habits, improving their physical fitness and taking a more active role in maintaining their overall health. The more employers and employees we can help get excited about making changes and living a healthier life, the closer we’ll be to better health for everyone.
