Are you the Fittest in Media?

Fittest in Media

Welcome to the leaderboard for this year's Fittest in Media challenge, which aims to find the fittest person working within a media agency in the UK. This will be achieved through a series of events held across a number of media agencies such as Maxus, Starcom MediaVest, Manning Gottlieb OMD and MediaCom, to name a few through until September.

The competition, now in its second year, will be run by Dennis Publishing title Men's Fitness, which has just undergone a redesign.

Here's how the challenge will work:

It's a timed test where each contestant will do as many press-ups, sit ups and burpees as they can in a minute each with no rest between moves. The person who achieves the highest number overall across all of the agencies will win.

Each contestant and their score will feature on the leaderboard below, so make sure to check this out following every event to find out the scores.
