Fitness Challenge 2020

Join with three Inver Hills Community College friends to make a team for the IHCC Fitness Challenge 2020.

The challenge, which begins Monday, February 3rd , is an eleven-week wellness incentive program designed to motivate IHCC students, staff and faculty to achieve a healthier lifestyle.

Teams of four gain points weekly for healthy activities such as:

  • Exercising
  • Eating well
  • Stress management
  • Not using tobacco
  • Dental hygiene
  • Attending Health Services Sponsored Events

The challenge to individual participants is to recognize and record healthy behaviors while working to improve weaker habits.

As the weeks progress, team and individual points will be tallied and posted in the Wellness Center to keep everyone informed on how their team is “shaping up”.

At the conclusion of the challenge, awards will be given to the top teams and individuals.  If a tie occurs, a drawing will award prizes.

The Fitness Challenge is a great opportunity to get in shape with the encouragement from

your teammates and other teams.  Registration is $5 for staff/faculty and FREE for students.
