Here at Exchequer, the health of our team members is of paramount importance, and therefore we are continually encouraging our team to get active and keep their fitness levels high.
As the majority of us are office based, it can be difficult to commit to a healthier lifestyle, particularly as we remain sedentary for a large proportion of the day, and are tempted by the various sweet treats the office kitchen has to offer. But we want to transform the way that office workers dedicate their time to fitness, so we have introduced our very own ‘Get Active’ initiative.
What is our Get Active initiative?
To encourage everyone to get active, we have provided each member of the team with £100 to spend on a fitness related activity of their choice, as well as providing free fresh fruit in the office as a healthier alternative to those mid-morning and afternoon snack cravings.
The Exchequer team has embraced this challenge fully and have signed themselves up for a number of events throughout the year, using it as a goal to improve upon their fitness and general activity levels.
On 24th March, twelve members of the team will be taking part in the Wilmslow Half Marathon and twenty-one members will be tackling Tough Mudder in September.
Not one to sit on the sidelines, our MD Mike Lowndes will be taking part in not one, not two, but three additional challenges, taking on a 10k, a triathlon and a half marathon, all in beautiful Abersoch.
Not only is the team taking part in these events for the benefit of their own health, but we will also be using them as an opportunity to raise vital funds for a number of inspirational charities.
