Fancy a challenge in 2017?
Looking to get fit and challenge yourself next year? New Year, new me, and all that jazz. So why not consider signing up to the National Workplace Challenge in 2017 to keep your work colleagues active, happy and engaged with one another? Inspire team building and motivation among your tribe by taking on a variety of challenges, 8-weeks at a time. The challenge periods usually run twice a year, with the first challenge kicking off in January and the second taking place in September.
What will you benefit from the Workplace Challenge?
There are many benefits of getting out of the office with your tribe. Not only is this something active and healthy that you can do as a team, but you can also work towards points and prizes from local companies. This year, Go Ape have partnered up with the Workplace Challenge this year to provide a corporate team day out for 10 people plus a catered picnic lunch. All you have to do to win is take part in the challenges and log your activity for points at www.workplacechallange.org.uk… and points mean prizes!
Get fit with your team mates, enjoy some quality team bonding time outside of the office environment, and most importantly have a lot of fun.
What could you do to take part?
The New Year kicks off with the first of the two challenges – the Active Lunch Challenge. You’re tasked with livening up your lunch time by getting involved in some fun activities throughout January-February. Need some inspiration? The National Workplace Challenge have described a list of ways that you can spice up your life (*lunch).
Below are just a few fun examples that you could try:
- Play table tennis
- Enjoy some office aerobics
- Walk a mid-day mile
- Challenge someone to a dance-off
- Host a press-up or plank challenge
Getting outside is important
We always mention just how crucial it is to spend time with your tribe outside of the office, and this is the perfect incentive to do so. Get fit with your team and you could win prizes for doing so… it’s a win/win. Have you considered a team day out in the trees, or taking on the forest on-board all-terrain segways? Take a look at our Go Ape team days out where you can challenge yourself both mentally and physically (apparently you can burn up to 500 calories on our Tree Top Adventure course!) Request a quote for your tribe’s day out and we’ll tailor the day to suit your needs.
And finally, don’t forget to log your activity at www.workplacechallange.org.uk to keep track of all of your points. Because points mean prizes after all! Good luck and enjoy!
