  1. G5 advocates a healthy lifestyle at work and outside of the office. G5 also offers free work out classes for their employees at the Bend Downtown Athletic Club and they’re also hosting Yoga in the park on August 4th for employees. Employees also get a discount on memberships at the Bend Downtown Club and Fitness 1440.

    G5 also hosted a biometrics screening in January for all employees who were interested. Many participated in the screening.
    G5 also created a Biggest Loser challenge this year. Employees participated in a chance of winning prizes. There were prizes for male and female first and second place winners. Several employees helped one another during the process. We would run/walk during our lunch break and before and after work. We also had FitBit challenges with one another. A group of employees would also meet at 10 am and 4 pm to walk up and down the stairs (5 floors) and do toning exercises, which included planks, pushups, squats, wall sits, lunges, etc.
    I was the first place female biggest loser winner at G5! I won $250 cash and a $50 gift certificate from Footzone. I couldn’t have done it without the support of G5, my co-workers, and Dani Edgel who is our HR – People Advocate. I lost 16 lbs during the process and gained self-confidence, gained muscle, and empowerment over my life.
    I have never worked for a company who encouraged a healthy lifestyle. Please give this company the recognition it deserves! Thank you!

    I have Before and After pictures if you would like me to send them in. I couldn’t attach them.
    Thanks again!
