Teams from companies in Phoenix show the impact of their wellness programs by training for and conquering a 3-course fitness challenge hosted by Fit Company

PHOENIX, ARIZONA, USA, November 17, 2017 — On November 4, 2017 participants from companies located in the Phoenix area took part in the Fit Company Challenge, a corporate wellness event hosted by the Fit Company Institute. The challenge provided area companies an opportunity to come together as a team and spend a morning exercising, pushing their physical and mental limits and showing the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. Companies split their team into squads of 3 to 4 people who worked together to complete a variety of fitness stations to challenge their fitness level and earn points for their company. Teams chose what level to go through each course which allowed participants of all fitness levels to push their physical fitness without going too far out of their comfort zone.

SUMCO Phoenix Corporation claimed the top spot in the Large division adding to their 1st place finish in the Medium division in the 2016 Phoenix Fit Company Challenge. From SUMCO Phoenix Corporation team captain Misty Gilmore, “SUMCO is committed to the health and wellness of our employees and families. Taking part in the Fit Company Challenge demonstrates our commitment to each other, working together, doing the best we can to achieve our goal.”

On event date, athletic trainers from AZ Fitness Plus ( assisted the participants and provided both guidance and motivation to the teams as they went through the various fitness stations and courses. Participants challenged their strength, conditioning, power, agility, and ended with a test of endurance to show their companies and colleagues that they practice what they preach. Participants used their involvement to bring out company team members, and family members to cheer them on and promote the importance of having fun and effective corporate wellness programs at their companies.

Brad grew up in a small town in northern Iowa. He studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married his wife one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
