Nexus Gets Healthier

Date: April 14th, 2017

Nexus Valve employees embark on a fitness challenge to lose weight and live healthier lifestyles in a friendly team competition. Each team consists of three employees that weigh-in weekly together on one scale. The team that has the highest weight loss percentage at the end of 10-weeks is the winner. There are weekly challenges that allows each participant to improve their lifestyle habits by eating better and working out, for example, skipping soda for the day and joining a walking group. In addition to the challenges, there are Lunch and Learn opportunities that bring outside guests, like personal trainers, to impart nutrition and fitness knowledge to employees. 

The trial program was rolled out in the first quarter of this year with a total group weight loss of 118 pounds in a 10-week session!
