Individual Winner - Advanced Category

Ramesh Gandhi, HSE Manager – Sinnar, India

Ramesh is the winner of the 'Advanced Category' for the 2018 Step Up for Health! – global step challenge. During the 4-week period, Ramesh amassed a total of 1,434,698 steps!

He achieved this amazing feat by dedicating himself to a structured exercise regimen.  He has continued beyond the step challenge and has now incorporated these habits into everyday life. Ramesh starts his day by going to the gym at 4:30 in the morning, cycling with his friends after work and walking with his wife as they travel the world.

His devotion to family motivates him to wake up extra early to fit in his workouts without jeopardizing time with his wife. His leadership role as HSE Manager and LifeBeats Site Champion provides the motivation to set an example for his colleagues and to live the LifeBeats way.

As LifeBeats Site Champion for Sinnar, Ramesh organized group cycling and walking activities, as well as, hosted an interdepartmental challenge to encourage maximum participation. Sinnar had nearly 100% participation at their site and many LYB employees got their family members involved in this year’s step challenge.
