Get Fit Challenge 2015 is in the works!

Get Fit Challenge 2015

With Get Fit Challenge 2013 and 2014 being such a success, we are so excited to begin planning to make Get Fit Challenge 2015 the best yet! Keep an eye out over the upcoming Fall semester for information about how to get on the Get Fit train!


If you are new to the Get Fit Challenge, welcome! The more, the merrier! The Get Fit Challenge is a great way to motivate you to educate yourself about your body, health, nutrition, and safe ways to exercise and achieve your goals. We even combine with our Group Fitness classes offered by our very own instructors, encourage personal training sessions, and collaborate with the Office of Nutritional Services, other health and wellness departments on campus, and bring sponsors in for donations and prizes to make this experience the most diverse and beneficial it can be. 

Below, there is information about Get Fit Challenge 2014 for you to get an idea of what fun activities, classes, and workshops are involved in making this experience super spectacular for you! Hope to see your team in the Get Fit Challenge of Winter 2015!
