In September 2018, Vitality Works ran the Fit24 challenge with members from the International Cycling Executives (ICE). ICE, a Vitality Works partner, is a network community of like-minded senior executives who share a passion for cycling. ICE seeks to foster deeper connections in the business community through events, technology, and shared experiences.
Members of ICE were given the opportunity to join the Fit24 challenge with a range of teams from different industries competing against each other. Members created teams of 4–7 participants within their organisation. All in all, the event drew a total of 61 participants.
Enfold Beasts from Enfold Projects took out the top spot in ICE’s Fit24 Challenge with 3663 points (see leaderboard below). A lawyer, an auditor, and some IT guys from Regional Australia Bank were hot on their heels in second place finishing with 3636 points. VW’ers from Vitality Works came in in third place.
Bonus points were also awarded through mini-competition participation and were a big contributor to teams earning top spots on the leaderboard with each team securing over 100 bonus points throughout the month of September. Some of those were:
Best Team Photo by the Kalturians
Best Sugar-Free Recipe – ‘Sugar-free coffee cheesecake’
Best sleep tip – from Robert Lower
Big Results, Big Numbers
- 68% of participants received 100% in the Fit24challenge (quitting sugar is definitely the hardest) with an average score of 78%.
- The average number of days that a participant went without sugar was 21.
- 53% of participants lost weight.
- 85% will continue to prioritise moving more during the day
