Episode 2: Hitch House Takes the Fit RV Challenge


So, the staff at The Hitch House Motorhome Specialists has completed the first week of their challenges, and had their first weekly weigh in.  Who took the individual honors, and who took the team competition?  Have a look at this quick video and see for yourself.  Without giving too much away, I can tell you that the winner of the steps competition took 109,000!

 
Now, for those of you playing along at home, the challenge for Week 2 was pushups (and steps, as always).  We gave them several varieties of pushups they could try, and the contestants were each to do the type that challenged them, but that they could complete with good form based on their fitness level.  We’ve already seen some numbers of more than 100 per day, so these folks are really going at it.  Stef and I have each been trying to help the members of our teams individually as well.

Why We’re Really Doing This:

Apart from the excitement of a contest, what we’re really hoping for is for the staff at The Hitch House to make some lasting changes that will help them lead longer, healthier lives.  I know it’s early yet, but judging from the reports we’re getting – this is starting to happen!  Apparently, it’s rare to see someone just sitting at their desk anymore.  Everyone is moving, walking, and bringing more energy throughout the day.  Great stuff!  It’s even more amazing when you consider that they’re in Canada, in January, and they’re choosing to spend their extra time lapping the dealership!

And Again, Please Send Encouragement!

These folks have stepped up for the challenge, but we all know it’s not over ’till it’s over.  Help them keep the momentum by leaving some encouraging comments below.

      Truly impressive. Congrats to all.

      One comment: That extra time spent lapping the Canadian dealership may be spent looking for their cars in snow drifts.

        Lol! I once spent all of a February up near Ottawa. I did exercise, but I don’t think I did it outside once.

      There’s no voice sound, but obviously a high quality canadian film only equaled by the great “Who’s who of Hinterland” Canada videos. I’m proud of you Ashley xo

      Watched the video,wow, their numbers of squats and steps make my legs feel like jello, vicariously! But! I’ve dusted off my pedometer and am seeing if I can beat their steps record this week, lol! Good luck teams!
