AlterG for the 3-Peat!
The AlterG Team with the coveted Penn Relays Wheel
We are thrilled to spread the news that AlterG is now the three-time Penn Relays Corporate Distance Medley Relays champion! Last Friday, four AlterG runners (and employees) from across the country met in Philadelphia to defend our title. They ran their best in the cold night to secure a decisive win over the second place team, JP Morgan (with their 240,000 employees).
Check out the race video here!
For the running enthusiasts among you, our splits were 3:08 for the 1200m (Jesus Romo), 74 for the 400m (Bea Tran – female), 2:24 for the 800m (Barry Heyden – 40+ year-old), and 4:22 for the 1600m (Michael Coe).
Why do we love participating in this event?
At AlterG, we strive to live by the values that our products promote – wellness, health, mobility, and performance. Through corporate competitions like this, we get the opportunity to put these values on display.
While not everyone at AlterG can run a 4-minute mile, we all understand the important role that exercise and mobility play in our overall health and wellness. Our employees are encouraged to find time during the day to stay active – whether this means practicing yoga, lifting weights, using our TRX, or (of course) running on the Anti-Gravity Treadmill™, our company gym is almost always in use!
Bringing the company together
The AlterG Crew Sending Positive Vibes from HQ
Our team’s win at Penn Relays truly is a win for the entire company! While we do love winning, the great thing about an event like this is how it brings our company together. While only four employees were on the track, they knew that they represented everyone at our headquarters in California and our sales reps and technicians around the country and world! (For example, the internal company email thread following this victory was the longest one we’ve ever had!)
As corporate wellness programs become more and more common, AlterG is excited to continue putting our values on display through friendly competitions like the Penn Relays Corporate DMR and the JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge. We’d like to thank Stew Beltz and the team at the Penn Relays for putting on the event!
(Don’t forget — The AlterG Anti-Gravity Treadmill is a great tool for any company looking to encourage more exercise and wellness among their employees! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
