On a near-perfect spring day in Dallas, 40 members of the defi TEAM rocked the 2018 Spring Fit Company Challenge.
And grabbed first place in the large division!
Joined by family members, cheered on by co-workers, and proudly sporting their “defi and CONQUER” t-shirts and “Freedom” headbands, ten teams of 4 participants — nearly 50% of the company — tackled the courses.
“Overtime” was a test of endurance. Once the clock started, the entire team ran and/or walked to complete as many laps as possible in the 10 or 20 minutes they were allotted.
In “The Board Room,” they showed off their strength and power—and tagged each other in on reps of push-ups, kettlebell squats, burpees, and other intense strength challenges—topping it off with a grimace-inducing full-team 90-second or 2-minute round of the plank.
On “The Corporate Ladder” they pushed their agility, power, full-body conditioning and speed. They dashed through agility courses, lobbed sandbags down the field, sprinted back and forth and back and forth again, and ran as hard as they could with a parachute billowing behind them, racing to beat the clock and be the fastest team to finish.
“The challenge is about health and wellness, but it’s even more about camaraderie,” said Abigail Arneson, defi’s fitness “coordinaire” for the fourth year in a row. “It puts all levels on the same playing field, finding a way to work together for the good of the team. It’s great preparation for how we work at defi.”
With some of the most physically and professionally fit talent in the industry, we’re ready to tackle more amazing opportunities and challenges in the year ahead! Go team defi!
