Client Support Specialist

Over half way through the challenge – and I have hit 1 MILLION STEPS! I have a new found appreciation for my feet! Great walking shoes are essential. I can’t be lazy and head out in my flats or my tootsies hurt! I have also modified my meals, to maximize energy and have learned the […]

Of all the holidays one is most familiar with, Fourth of July, Christmas, Presidents Day and Easter to name a few, National Popcorn Day does not immediately come to mind. In fact I have never, until this January, participated in any celebration focused on the advent of Popcorn; unless you count eating a bottomless tub […]

Lanett Merrills

Proposal Coordinator

I have never really been into working out and even though I know I should do it, the motivation does not come naturally. So when the FitBit Challenge was announced, I almost chose not to participate. I really didn’t have the extra cash to afford the FitBit, but I thought, “WOW! A FREE trip to […]

Working in IT, I don’t have many opportunities to be away from my desk and computer. I try to take breaks and be active during the day; however I am often too immersed in a project or issue to do so.  This sedentary lifestyle is not who I am outside of work. In fact being […]

QA Analyst

The Plexis Steps Challenge brings a greater awareness of my daily activity level as well as motivate me through a little friendly competition.

  As a former distance runner, I know the importance of a consistent workout routine. One that involves at least 30 minutes of cardio each day.  In recent years, I’ve gravitated more toward weight training largely because the cardio workouts can become so static and I need something a little more dynamic.  Even though strength […]

Running: It’s my escape, my stress relief, my jam session and one of my favorite things to do, but not always. I started running right before I joined the Army. I needed a decent 2 mile run to pass the physical fitness test during boot camp. The last thing I wanted to do was fail […]

During 2014, I graduated from being a parent of an infant to a parent of a toddler with food allergies. In addition, I had many changes to my role and responsibilities in my professional life. So, 2014 was a pretty intense year for me. This gradually led me back to drinking a ton of soda […]

Randy Leidich

Software Developer

During the spring and summer I had a lot of spare time and was in two hiking groups in addition to working out at the YMCA, dancing and walking around Medford and the greenway whenever I could.  It felt very good.  Then I no longer had a lot of time, the daylight hours got fewer, […]

Anna Fusco

Office Services Manager

This steps challenge has been a great motivator to be more and more active and push myself to run more. I had found myself in a rut until I moved to Oregon and started at Plexis who promoted so much health and wellness. The opportunity to walk during work or take a Pilates class was […]
