Working Out at Work, MHM Style

In 2012, MHM announced the launch of our new health and wellness program, MHM Be Well. MHM Be Well was designed to help team members make healthy choices in an engaging and supportive environment. In an effort to increase each team member's physical activity, MHM Be Well introduced team members to the Active Team Challenge (ATC) as a way to promote healthy competition between self-constructed teams within MHM.

As part of the ten-week challenge, MHMers formed ATC teams consisting of four to seven members per team. The first task delegated to teams was to create a team name. Ranked among the crowd favorites were ‘Withering a Weigh’ and ‘Girls Gone  Walking’, while ‘We Perspire to Inspire’ took home the prize for favorite team name as voted by MHMers. As part of this winning designation, each team member on the We Perspire to Inspire team walked away with a $15 Subway gift card.

Our next task was to educate ourselves with the ‘Working Out at Work’ video seminar designed by our friends at Personalized Prevention. MHMers were charged with taking notes and encouraged to, if possible, watch the video with our ATC team.

Well, 7 Degrees of Fabulousness did just that and MORE! Take a look at how our very own bring exercising to work:

 

As we enter into the sixth week of the Challenge, MHMers are motivated now more than ever to step up their activity and walk into improved health. Please consider sharing how you stay active while at work (by using the Comments feature below).
