Hamilton, Bermuda (March 3, 2015) – The Argus Group today announces the launch of Get Up & Thrive, an online wellness platform that offers team and individual challenges, activity tracking and other well-being activities. Get Up & Thrive is part of the Thrive programme, Argus’ nutrition, fitness and wellness strategy aimed at improving the health of Bermuda’s workforce, which was launched in January.

In 2015, there will be three, eight week-long team challenges that offer groups of five to 11 friends, family members, or employees the chance to unite and motivate each other around healthy goals. The first team challenge begins on March 16 and will track minutes exercised, steps walked and percent of weight lost over the eight week period ending May 10. In addition, weekly bonuses and quick daily challenges introduce tips and tasks for individuals to try. Participants earn rewards for participating in challenges and become eligible for prizes and raffles.

The Get Up & Thrive platform ( is user friendly and offers participants a variety of challenges as well as the option to create their own challenge. Whether it’s in a team, versus a friend, or individually there are challenges that fit every schedule and lifestyle.

Alison Hill, Chief Executive Officer of the Argus Group, says: “I have signed up for Get Up & Thrive and encourage all Argus clients to do the same. Competition is a great motivation to get healthy and working towards a goal makes getting fit fun. Participants can create a programme to match their schedule and personal goals, which makes this practical for everyone. At Argus we believe that even small efforts made every day can improve wellness. When fitness is fun and easy, everyone can thrive!”

Registration for Get Up & Thrive opens today and individuals interested in participating in the first team challenge must register before the challenge begins on March 16.
