On Saturday, February 22, Pinnacle participated in the 2020 Houston Fit Company Challenge at Houston Sports Park. The event, hosted by Fit Company, is a team fitness challenge in which Houston-area companies compete for the title of “most fit team” in Houston. It’s designed to get employees to bond in a fun environment and learn how to better work together towards common goals, both in the office and on the field, while focusing on fitness and wellness.
To complete the challenge, each team must complete three fitness courses: “The Board Room,” “The Corporate Ladder,” and “Overtime.” Each fitness course focuses on different fitness and teamwork skills and measures each team’s ability to meet the course’s goals for various exercises such as push-ups, kettle bell swings, and endurance running. To accommodate for the differing levels of fitness among the teams, each fitness course had two levels that teams could choose from based on their fitness level.
The team has been training hard and it paid off – Pinnacle earned first place overall in the small company division!
“The Fit Company Challenge was an overall fantastic experience! Not only was it a fun and challenging workout, but a great team-building event where we competed against other companies. I’m excited the challenge has become an annual tradition with Pinnacle and I’m looking forward to participating (and winning) again!” said Pinnacle Analyst, Austin Armstrong.
