Even though 1) we haven’t “taken up the tradition of pushup breaks", 2) we aren’t allowed to do pushups in the contact center, 3) we have a geriatric 1/8 of a ton’r, car accident bad back victim, and one partially removed tricep from a baseball injury...WE ACCEPT YOUR CHALLENGE! (with the stipulation of a second challenge of our choosing).Fair play was also accompanied by many snarky comments between teams.
Dealer Sales: “I would like some validation on what kind of pushups they were doing, if any.” Dealer Services: “The type of pushups we did are called winning pushups!” Dealer Sales: “I guess we’ll need to use both arms today to compete.” Dealer Services: “You guys were using arms?”But in the end, the numbers sided with Dealer Sales. Good game, teams! Stay tuned for the next challenge.
Michael Tomiak!Michael took week 4 of the Outsell walking contest with over 100k steps, sweeping the overall competition for the true win at over 300k steps with Rita Van Pelt narrowly coming in second.

May is National Employee Health & Fitness Month, and in the spirit of starting the summer off healthy with some friendly competition, Outsell has implemented a walking contest. Participating employees picked up pedometers starting Friday, April 29th, competing for weekly prizes and a final overall ‘most steps throughout the month’ prize.
Weekly winners get a $10 giftcard to either Target or Bruegger’s. The final monthly prize is two Twins tickets for a day game and that entire day off of work, with 2nd place getting a $50 giftcard to Target.
Competition has been tight. Week one went to Operations Project Manager, Rita Van Pelt, and week two was announced this morning as Operations Production Specialist, Michael Tomiak, with weekly steps nearing 80k!
Congratulations! And good luck to all in the remaining weeks of the competition!
