Marathon instead of a sofa! Employees of the company’s enterprises launched a creative and invigorating flash mob with the hashtag # MetalloinvestBudemZdorovye on social networks.
Self-isolation is not a reason to abandon a healthy lifestyle. The workers of Lebedinsky and Mikhailovsky GOKs, OEMK and Ural Steel prove this by their example. While the gyms are closed, they are actively engaged at home. And they approach training creatively. The course includes not only the usual sports equipment: dumbbells, weights and hoops, but also any things that can be adapted for classes: backpacks, water bottles and other items.
The idea was pleasant to others and grew into a whole sports challenge (from the English – “challenge”, approx. Ed.) In social networks. Miners and metallurgists, who can’t even think of a day of life without physical exertion, take videos on the phone and post them on their pages. The heroes of the video are often children and pets.
The authors of the videos urge everyone to join in sports and upload episodes of their home workouts – photos and videos – to the Internet with hashtags # MetalloinvestBudemZdorov, # Metalloinvest and their company (# LGOK, # OEMK, # MGOK, # Uralskaya Steel). And do not forget to say the key phrase of the flash mob “Let's be healthy!” In the final of the video. By the way, four random authors of the video will receive branded T-shirts with the symbols of Metalloinvest!
On the official pages of the company there are already general videos # MetalloinvestBudemZdorovye. They are mounted from the records of all users who have posted publications on their pages.
Leading specialist of the internal social programs department of the Directorate for Social Affairs, Chairman of the Lebedinsky GOK Youth Council:
– I support, a great initiative! I love sports, so I joined the challenge with my family with pleasure, every day I have to do exercises and some additional exercises. For people who cannot go to the gym right now, this flash mob, like a breath of fresh air, is an incentive to continue training even during self-isolation. Plus, when we share photos and videos with each other on social networks, it encourages even those who, maybe, were lazy before or did not understand what exercises can be done at home. They look, get inspired, think: “My colleague showed me how to push up every morning, but what am I worse? I’ll arrange a training for myself! ” And so the initiative embraces more and more interested people. Someone even motivates to stop being nervous in front of the camera lens, so this is also a plus. Perhaps the most difficult part is to make beautiful shots – you need to try. Well, various modern applications will help you quickly and easily make a good video or photo and share it with everyone.
Economist of the controlling department of Lebedinsky GOK:
– Together with my daughter Dasha, we perform exercises every day: push ups, squats,
make a stretch. Plus the homework of kindergarten teachers is an invigorating exercise. We need to keep ourselves in good shape, and I also have to prepare slowly for passing the TRP standards, because soon, I hope, the situation with the pandemic will improve and we will have a lot of competitions. In general, Dasha and I never sit still, always busy with something: we cook, draw, dance. Do not have to be bored! I recommend everyone to join the flash mob "Let's be healthy!". Although it’s not easy to find time, it’s worth it. As a reward – good physical condition, cheerfulness and good mood!
