Guest blogger: Julie Erickson, Marketing Coordinator
Since becoming a member of Team Perfect here in the marketing department a few months ago, I’ve experienced an unparalleled pride in the company that I represent. When getting to know someone, I honestly can’t wait for the question to come up— “So, where do you work?” Ahhhh yes! Then I get to talk about my amazing co-workers, our kick-ass products, and incomparable company culture. Predictably, if you were to look over at me when I’m having a conversation with someone I just met, 9 times out of 10 I’ll be doing the Perfect Pushup or Perfect Pullup “hand-gestures”! My explanation usually also triggers a reaction of “No way! You work for Perfect Pushup? Sweet!” So, since my employment began, I’ve done my best to spread the word to friends (and everyone else for that matter!) about the greatness of our products.
Case 1: The roommate. She works in a “suit-and-tie” kind of office in an 11-story building in the Financial District of San Francisco with mostly other mid to late 20-somethings. They have meetings every morning at 7am to get them fired up and keep the energy level high throughout the day by hitting a 2-foot gong whenever someone secures a lead. And NOW her office is also equipped with a set of PERFECT PUSHUPS!
Now, whenever someone has reason to hit the gong, they also have reason to drop down and pump out some pushups! And don’t think high heels are going to discourage the ladies—they kick those shoes off and do pushups too! When hunched in front of a computer all day, taking a short break to do some pushups is a great way to get the blood flowing and stimulate some inter-office rivalry!
