Virgin Pulse Global Challenge – week seven update

Seven members of the Gibbons team are taking part in the 100-day Virgin Pulse Global Challenge. This event tasks the group with wearing a pedometer all day, every day until Friday 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 motivated us all to become more active.

We’re about to hit the halfway point of the challenge, and after 49 days of walking, running, cycling and swimming, there’s no sign of our enthusiasm wavering. This is set to be tested towards the end of the week, though, as we each embark on achieving a personal minimum number of steps on three consecutive days.

Here are the ABB authorised value provider mini-league standings at the seven-week mark:

The good news is that we’re increasing our lead over sixth-placed Team Halcyon, but we’re struggling to gain ground on Central Striders above us. However, with the clocks going back this weekend and temperatures set to plummet, everyone’s mettle is about to be tested.

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
