Six energy companies went head to head in the $10,000 Energy Industry Challenge that began January 22nd.

The Truffle Shuffles
Stephen P., Scott H, Jared B, Aaron C, and Brian M are all coworkers, working for Phillips 66 Hartford Lubricants division. When the opportunity for the competition came knocking, this group of guys all felt it was their time to make a change. They worked hard to find a group that were all motivated to look and feel better, and their natural competitive drive kicked into gear big time once the challenge started. When asked about their motivation, Jared B. explained, “The money was definitely a huge incentive for us, but at the same time so was our overall health. The best motivation is seeing and feeling results.”
Since the guys all work together, they did enjoy a few meals together throughout the week, and saw each other frequently enough it was easy for them to stay in touch about their progress. No one wanted to be the one to let the team down, so that plus some light-hearted razzing seemed to keep everyone on track throughout the competition. “You have to keep it fun and have a good sense of humor.” We totally agree!
When we asked what they enjoyed most about the challenge, Jared B answered from the heart:
“Once you’re motivated and invest yourself in a healthier lifestyle, it’s amazing how much time you actually have to exercise. You just have to make it a priority. Three months ago, we were all very unehatlhy with our eating habits and not exercising nearly enough. Now, we have lost almost 240 pounds combined and feel great!”
Congratulations to The Truffle Shuffles Team, and congratulations to Phillips 66 for bringing home the win!
