Spring Fitness Challenge
March 9 - May 3, 2015 *Registration deadline Febraury 27th
This is an opportunity to get motivated and in shape for warmer weather (it is coming). It is also a nice team based program that allows you to encouage each other to exercise.
How does it work?
Register a team of 5-20 people, then exercise and receive points. Points are awarded based on your choice of activity and the duration, as well as for weight loss (if that is your goal). Monitor your progress relative to the other participants and compete for the top spots. There are 3 levels for teams ot make it more fair for all levels of participating teams.
Cash prizes at the end reward the best performing individuals and teams! There are even regular prize drawings throughout the program. Recording activity automatically enters you into the weekly drawing.
There are also some educational sessions on exercise and nutrition (for those interested) as well as fun team activities like dodge ball and obstacle courses and teams will receive prizes for best participation.
Non-members pay just $30 for an 8-week membership to the Center (although you can exercise anywhere), a t-shirt and a chance to win money and prizes. Members receive an $11 discount.
Everyone joins the Fitness Challenge for different reasons. Regardless of your reason for participating, we try to make the Spring Fitness Challenge a fun, motivating tool to help you become more active and healthier.
A Team Effort
All participants must register on teams of 5 to 20 people. University staff, students, alumni and retirees are encouraged to participate. By competing with and against your peers, you'll have the extra motivation you need to keep moving!
We also have prizes for team that participates the most, in activities like games, obstacle races and other fun things.
Non-members must complete an application and attend a "New Member Orientation" before they can start, but they will be allowed to use the Fitness & Wellness Center during the course of the Challenge. Each team must have at least 2 non-members.
