Hannah Harper-Newman from Nelson's Journey in Norfolk has enjoyed taking part in the Active Lunch Challenge and said,
"It's been great taking part in the Active Lunch Challenge – logging activities is so motivational and I'm much more productive in the afternoon having been for a walk at lunch. It's also been wonderful taking part in more activities as a team and, most importantly, is really fun!"
Angie Porter from NHS Telford & Wrekin said,
"I joined the Workplace Challenge as at work I am sat down at my desk the majority of time and was aware that I was not doing enough exercise. I have found the activity tracker has helped incentivise me to do additional exercise, giving me a weekly target to work to and encouraging me to increase the amount of activity I am doing, not only at work, but outside of work too. I feel this is helping both my physical and mental wellbeing."
Jo Ross from KHR Recruitment Specialists in Kent said,
"I have enjoyed the Active Lunch challenge, it has introduced a competition in the workplace and definitely helps with the afternoon slump. I make sure I walk 20-30 mins every lunch time plus it encouraged me to walk further at the weekends, with my dog. We then compare distances at work on a Monday. I have taken on one of my walks, I am very fortunate to be surrounded by beautiful countryside."
Lily Yates from Seven Stones in London was an winner of a pair of trainers courtesy of DW Sports & Fitness and said,
"Thank you Workplace Challenge and DW Sports & Fitness for my new trainers. I am putting them to good use by lunging into lunchtime. I now feel more energised and alert for a more productive afternoon."
