Virgin Pulse Global Challenge - week one update

Last Wednesday, seven members of the Gibbons team embarked on the 100-day Virgin Pulse Global Challenge. This competition tasks the seven with wearing a pedometer all day, every day, in order to rack up the maximum number of steps for their team. The ‘Funky Gibbons’ team is up against seven fellow ABB authorised value providers, and it’s hoped the healthy competition will encourage us all to get more active.

The challenge has certainly done the trick for some of our office-based staff, who have taken to racking up a couple of thousand steps with a brisk walk round the village at lunchtime. Although with the weather set to take a turn for the worst, this dedication will soon be put to the test!

One week in, the Funky Gibbons lie a disappointing 6th in the eight-team league despite having clocked up 142 miles between them. However, this is a marathon, not a sprint and with personal bests being broken each day, we’re confident that we’ll give the leaders a run for their money come December 15th.

As an authorised value provider, Gibbons is exclusively approved to supply, install and service ABB drives while offering training and technical expertise. Find out more by calling 01621 868 138 or email
