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

  • Eating well
  • Stress management
  • Not using tobacco

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.

PERSONAL INTERESTS – Traveling the world, playing tennis during the summers, and trying all the new food around the Twin Cities!
