M. Lambe Construction launch ‘Peak to Peak’ challenge to promote physical activity

Staff are being encouraged to take on some of the world’s most iconic mountains to help them achieve their personal fitness goals.

We have converted the height of well-known mountains, like Mount Snowdon, Ben Nevis and the Matterhorn, into steps and given everyone access to a fitness tracker to monitor their progress towards the summit.

Research by NHS England says that regular physical activity can help combat health issues, such as heart disease, strokes, type 2 diabetes, cancer, anxiety and depression. It also recommends that adults should exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes five days a week, yet a third are exercising less than 30 minutes per week.

Michael Lambe, Director, M. Lambe Construction, said: “Sometimes people struggle to exercise regularly. We believe that employers have a responsibility to promote the benefits of regular physical activity to their staff and encourage them to make lifestyle changes that lead to a greater quality of life and wellbeing.”
