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 Third 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 third quarter challenge, “Don’t let Adrian tell you, ‘You can’t Win’!” will be a six-week challenge with a goal of 275 points per week for each participating employee. This is a 25 point increase from the 2nd quarter challenge. Mr. Collier has approved administrative leave for every employee who completes the challenge in its entirety. The challenge begins Monday, April 17, 2017, and ends Sunday, May 28, 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 third quarter challenge begins April 10, 2017.

Rules for the challenge are as follows:

  1. Employees must sign up on the WSD Intranet website from April 10 through April 13, 2017.
  2. Participants should report their total weekly points by the end of the day each Monday for the duration of the challenge, but be flexible. If you have employees, that because of their schedule, because of leave, or due to some other unforeseeable situation, are unable to turn in weekly points by the due date, take their points when they provide them and send an amended email to Heidi Leonard with the updated total. In order to successfully complete the second quarter challenge, participants must report 275 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 275 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.
