The OSG BOOT CAMP Winners are...

Just in time for summer, we completed our annual BOOT CAMP and the results are in! We have become physically stronger, and we are ready to enjoy the summer fun! BOOT CAMP started on May 4th with initial tests in planks, sit-ups, squats, push-ups, vertical jumps and a 40 yard dash. Employees had 6 weeks to improve their scores from the initial results.

 

Overall, 12 participants improved their scores by at least 20%. The average improvement was 33%. Our top 2 winners went well above the average:

 

Most Improved Performer: Irma Carrera, QA Inspector II—improved her score by 131%

 

Most Improved Runner-Up: Pravina Panchigar, QA Inspector IV—improved her score by 86%

 

OSG also has some great performers who demonstrated their physical strength with the highest test scores!

 

Highest Performing Female: Alyssa Walther, Applications Engineer

 

Highest Performing Male: Ian Duncan, Inventory Control Planner

 

 




You are probably wondering how well they performed in the tests. Our highest performing female, Alyssa, who practices volleyball regularly, excelled in the squats and vertical jump tests and the 40 yard dash. Her vertical jump score was 19.50 inches, and she ran the 40 yards in 5.50 seconds! Our highest performing male, Ian, also showed his strength in the plank test. He held a plank for over 2 minutes! According to the research, average men should be able to hold a plank for at least a minute, so Ian went well above the average.


Summer just started, and it is not too late to kick-start your fitness. From OSG BOOT CAMP, we recommend the plank to improve your core stability and strength. It is likely that you have great physical fitness if your core is strong. Not only does the plank exercise strengthen your body, but it also improves your mood! If you sit at your desk all day at work, your muscles tighten up. According to LIVE STRONG.COM, we are able to stretch stiff muscles that contribute to stress by practicing the plank exercise. In addition, plank exercise can help calm your brain to reduce stress!


Congratulations to the winners and stay tuned for the OSG’s next fitness challenge!
