Virgin Pulse Global Challenge – week four update

A seven-strong Gibbons team are currently tackling the 100-day Virgin Pulse Global Challenge. This competition tasks the group with wearing a pedometer all day, every day until 15th December, in order to accumulate the maximum number of steps for their team.

The ‘Funky Gibbons’ team is up against seven fellow ABB authorised value providers, and the healthy competition has pushed us all to get more active. Being part of a team is driving us all to maximise our step count, with no-one wanting to ‘let the side down’ as we attempt to climb the league table.

Speaking of which, here are the standings after 28 days:

An impressive 221 miles have been covered by the Funky Gibbons during the last seven days, up on last week’s total and helping us to consolidate fifth place. However, our nearest rivals Central Striders have extended their lead over us, which we hope to shorten this weekend as the next mini challenge takes place.

The ‘Beat your Best’ mini challenge tasks each of us with improving our personal best between 5th and 8th October, so look out for our next update to see how the team got on.

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
