One of the best parts about running a team-based employee wellness challenge is the opportunity to create a fun and motivating team name. However, sometimes it is easier said than done! Check out the list below for some amazing team names. Use one for your team name, or have the list inspire the creation of your very own.

Pro-tip for employers: Randomly assigning teams is a great option for a wellness challenge. It creates opportunities for individuals within an organization that would not otherwise interact to connect, build relationships, and work toward a common goal. When assigning random teams, using fun team names, like the ones listed below, are a great way to add some flare to the program.
