Are you ready to take another chance at exercising
across America? This year, we’re continuing the successful and beneficial
Wellness Challenge of last year, with some great changes.
You will be given the
opportunity to travel to different states across the country, and be awarded 25 Healthy U points for completing the
challenge. The 2015 Exercise Across the USA Wellness Challenge will provide a
great way to meet the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines to engage in
moderate physical activity for 150 minutes per week.
Participate in at least 150
minutes of physical activity every week. If you exercise more than the recommendations, you’ll be awarded all 50 states!
James G. Mill Fitness Center, Zink Hall.
Seven weeks beginning October 26 through December 11
$15 for members; $25 for non-members (includes a
seven-week membership for the duration of the challenge). Sign up with a friend, and
each receives a five-day guest pass. Register in the fitness center at any time
throughout the challenge
sign-up gift and an exercise log
Hours of exercise will be converted to mileage that
will help you travel to different states across the USA. Each hour of physical activity will count as
traveling and being awarded one state (with a postcard of that state given).
Examples of physical activity include running, brisk walking, strength
training, aerobics, playing sport, dancing, lap swimming, and water aerobics.
For each state awarded, you will receive one raffle
ticket for the chance to win one of two gift baskets. These will include an
apparel gift card, 25 percent off new/renewed membership, a five-day guest pass, and
other beneficial items for your journey to becoming a healthier you. The person
who travels to the most states will receive a trophy at the end, and be
recognized in our monthly newsletter.
