Working out and losing weight is not an easy task and requires support from family, friends, and co-workers.

Luckily for our At Work teams, they all have a dependable captain to encourage, motivate and lead them to success!

 

Team captains are encouraged to participate with their teammates in sponsored events, provide weekly meetings and we asked each captain to send weekly reports on their team's progress.

While struggling to balance this challenge with work and family obligations, At Work captains have managed to go above and beyond. Captains have organized healthy potlucks, signed contracts for personal trainers and dietitians, exercised together outside of work, and so much more.

Our At Work teams are lucky to have great leadership at their disposal and we expect a lot of success at the end of the challenge for participants.
