A pep rally atmosphere permeated the Sirva Worldwide Relocation & Moving offices Tuesday as the company kicked off a new health initiative.
Chief Operating Officer Andrew Coolidge led the charge with a little help from Abby Rike, a former contestant on NBC's reality series "The Biggest Loser," who introduced the Vitality Wellness Program.
The effort aims to encourage healthy living among the company's more than 500 employees at its Fort Wayne location, 5001 U.S. Highway 30 W.
"They'll be no more doughnuts with Drew," Coolidge said, adding that face time with the executive will now consist of more nutritious foods.
Rike told the more than 250 workers attending the meeting that healthy living isn't about how you look or how much you weigh, but whether a person is living or just existing.
Rike was a contestant on the reality series in 2009 and lost 100 pounds after starting at 247 pounds.
