The program is designed to increase the amount of physical activity that employees engage in during working hours. The Stairs Challenge encourages employees to use the stairs in lieu of the elevator. By adding a few steps a day into your work routine you can increase your physical activity as well as improve your overall health and well-being. The Challenge begins March 3rd and runs through March 30th. We hope to see you on the stairs!
The Chair Challenge is a four week program designed to increase the amount of N.E.A.T. (Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis/Time) employees perform during working and nonworking hours. The Chair Challenge encourages employees to take N.E.A.T. physical activity breaks throughout the day. Performing these types of breaks will help with refocusing and clearing the mind, reduce stress levels, enhance blood flow and caloric burning, and provide a multitude of other physiological, social, emotional and intellectual benefits!
