Get Ready. Get Set. Get Fit!

The Get Fit Challenge is an annual fitness initiative where students, faculty and staff can participate in various fitness, nutrition and wellness activities.  By participating, you will be able to compete for points and weekly prizes, but most importantly, GET FIT!!  All levels of physical fitness are welcome, and points are given based on effort and participation. Points are received for obtaining stamps for engaging in various activities, including:

  • Fitness and Nutrition Seminars
  • Workouts
  • Workshops and tutorials
  • Fitness and wellness events
  • Biometric analysis
  • Logging progress with nutrition and fitness
  • and much more!

In 2014, the Get Fit Challenge will be bigger than ever! This year, the Rec/IM has greatly expanded the program by partnering with student organizations and departments within the university such as:

  • Office of Nutrition Services (ONS)
  • EagleFIT
  • ResLife
  • Human Resources

Additionally, in an effort to reward participants for all of their hard work, the Rec/IM has partnered with many local businesses such as:

  • Whole Foods Market
  • The Tower Inn
  • Vis-à-Vis Health Spa
  • Trader Joe's
  • and many more!
