The goal of EPTraining is to have as many as possible of the EPT employees to exercise frequently and to get the benefit of it on the health, working capacity and general well-being. Further, a goal is to make more social meeting points and improve social relations among the employees.
EPTraining is for all levels of fitness and physical skills, and is not meant to be a showcase for those who exercise a lot.
EPTraining involves use of a web-based exercise log at Avantas Aktiv. You get points depending upon the time you exercise and the type of exercise (hiking, running, strength training etc.). The employees enter a team with a team leader, and the teams are competing against each other. Every four months there is a gathering with prizes (read more about the project (pdf)).
