For a third year, Spectra Logic employees participated in the Spectra Logic Fitness Challenge. The Fitness Challenge, a collaboration with local Personal Trainer Judd NeSmith, aims to encourage healthy living in and outside of the office. The challenge measures associate’s fitness levels in a seven-part test curated by Judd that focuses on agility, stamina, and strength.
Spectra employees took the first test in the Challenge last week, with a total of 44 individuals participating. Individuals began with a Body Mass Index (BMI) reading using a professional scale, their waist circumferences measured, and then alternated between squat and push-up exercises. After seeing how many squats and push-ups they could do within a minute, participants tested their stamina by holding a side plank pose. When the group finished, they gathered for the T-Test, where individuals would take turns running in a ‘T’ shape as fast as they could. The final part of the test was a one-mile walk or run course set up around Spectra’s campus.
