The Infinite Loser

| 8/1/2009
About 80 employees of Gainesville's Infinite Energy, one of Florida's Best Companies To Work For, are competing in a companywide weight-loss competition called the "Infinite Loser." The person who loses the most by Oct. 31 -- and keeps it off -- will get $3,000. To help in wellness, the company even hired a nutritionist/ personal trainer who's at its gym during lunch and after work to help employees with fitness goals.
