With holiday weight gain on everyone’s minds, one Atlanta-area company — eVestment — helped employees stay fit with a fall/winter fitness challenge. Employee wellness is important at Marietta-based eVestment, a leading provider of institutional investment data and analytics.

About 60 employees worldwide participated in the challenge, which began on Oct. 9 and included a weekly running course and individual and group running and exercise sessions throughout the two-month challenge. Participants were ranked based on a variety of criteria, including time in a 5K race, overall weight loss, percent of body fat reduction and more.

Awards were given out in a variety of categories for both men and women, including overall fittest man and woman, most improved fitness, most pushups and situps, best 5K time and most weight loss.

While based in metro Atlanta, eVestment has offices in New York, Hong Kong, London and Sydney, Australia, and employees from those offices participated as well. Prized included gift cards, fitness bracelets and Apple TV devices.
