Denver Celebrates Corporate Wellness at 2017 Fall Fit Company Challenge

Teams from companies in Denver show the impact of their wellness programs by training for and conquering a 3-course fitness challenge hosted by Fit Company

DENVER, COLORADO, USA, October 6, 2017 / -- On September 23, 2017 participants from companies located in the Denver 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 the inaugural Denver event, Vivax Pros came out strong with 7 squads and took the top spot in the Large Team Division. From Vivax Pros team captain Manisha Haywood, “We at Vivax really think the overall wellbeing of our employees is very important. I am their Health Coach on staff here and I coach 3 CrossFit Style classes every day during the week at our Company gym "The Therapy Box". And that is free for all employees. I also offer any nutritional guidance they need. By taking part in the Fit company Challenge - we had a goal to aim towards and got people excited to work out!”

Hunter Douglas Window Fashions took the top spot in the highly competitive Small Team division in the inaugural Denver Challenge. From Hunter Douglas team captain Sarah Wilkinson, “Here at Hunter Douglas taking some time during our day to exercise helps keep us motivated and keeps things fun! Having the opportunity to represent our company, challenge ourselves, and participate in a friendly competition wasn't something we were going to miss! This was a great event that every participant enjoyed and can't wait to compete in again!”

On event date, volunteers assisted the contenders through the courses from The Rebel Workout (, and Blunt Force Training ( 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.
