Chairman’s Fitness Challenge 2017

Happy New Year! With the holidays behind us and the New Year ahead of us, many are making New Year’s resolutions. More often than not, those resolutions include changing the way we eat or exercise or both! With that in mind, the Second Quarter Chairman’s Fitness Challenge, is about to begin. As you make your resolutions for 2017, resolve to include goals for a healthier lifestyle this year.

In keeping with the Rocky Balboa theme, the second quarter challenge, “Hit Fitness with a Haymaker, Italian Stallion Style!” will be a six-week challenge with a goal of 250 points per week for each participating employee. This is a 25 point increase from the 1st quarter challenge. Mr. Collier has approved administrative leave for every employee who completes the challenge in its entirety. The challenge begins Monday, January 23, 2017, and ends Sunday, March 5, 2017.

Don’t forget, Chairman Wainwright is encouraging employees to participate in the special Gold and Platinum challenges as well. He has set a weekly minimum goal of 1,000 points for himself and is challenging those who can to aim even higher and join the Chairman’s Special Platinum Challenge for achieving 2,500 points each week. A special recognition will be given to those who meet these goals each week of the challenge.

Registration for WSD Employees for the second quarter challenge begins January 17, 2017.

Rules for the challenge are as follows:

  1. Employees must sign up on the WSD Intranet website from January 17 through January 20, 2017.
  2. Participants should weekly report their total points before the end of the second working day of the following week for the duration of the challenge. In order to successfully complete the second quarter challenge, participants must report 250 points per week.
  3. Participants may use any of the physical activities listed on the 2017 exercise equivalents chart in order to earn the required 250 points per week minimum. Only the physical activities listed on the chart will count toward an employee’s weekly points, but remember to be creative! For example, if an employee climbs stairs at their job every day they may use that as part of the climbing activity to assist them in getting their points for the week.
