One of the best parts about running a team-based wellness challenge is the opportunity to create a fun and motivating team name. Sometimes it is easier said than done though! 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. If you have a great team name that didn’t make the list, leave a suggestion in the comments section so others can benefit from the creativity.

Pro tip for employers: Randomly assigning teams is a great option for an employee 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.
