Knowland’s third annual Fitness Challenge got off to a great start last Thursday in our Salisbury office. With more than 100 employees participating, the competition is going to be fierce! This year the competition will go for five months to give employees a better opportunity to make healthy changes in their life that they will be able to stick with long after the official Fitness Challenge is over.
CEO Michael McKean kicked things off at the launch with some opening comments and then handed things over to our resident fitness expert, Trainer Dave. He had many words of wisdom about how to succeed, not only with the Fitness Challenge, but with getting and staying healthy for life.
Prizes will be given for the 1st and 2nd place winners in two categories: percentage of body weight lost and percentage of body fat lost. First prize in both categories will be a free trip for two on the company plane with a two night stay at any of our client hotels within 600 miles. They will also receive $500 spending money and three extra vacation days. What a great motivator to put down that cheeseburger and head to the gym!
