Commit to Get Fit Rules

Team Captains will report weight loss percentages and total steps from each week by 5 p.m. on Mondays to jballew@se.edu. The total will be Monday-Sunday. We will have an exception the last week, we will do the totals on Friday so we can give out the prizes on Halloween.

Results will be sent out via email on Tuesdays so the participants can monitor their team’s or an individual’s placement in the competition.

Initial weigh in will need to be on Monday, September 19th. We will be following for 6 weeks.

Last weigh in will need to be on Friday, October 28th. Weekly Submission sheets will be due by 5p.m. Friday, October 28th.

We will have a weekly challenge for points, and we will have random challenges for a prize.

The point system for this round will be:

Teams- 30 minutes of exercise for 4 days a week-4 points.

Each additional day with 30 minutes of exercise will be worth 1 point each day, so

The top three in weight loss % will receive points-

If you complete a random challenge, your name will be put in the hat for a prize drawing. This does not have to be done as a team. You can submit these results together or individually
Team Members will earn points by the following:

Weekly challenges are worth 4 points.  I will send out your weekly challenge every Friday for the next week. If it is a weeklong challenge, we will start it the following Monday morning. If it is just for a day, I will specify what day you will need to do it.

Individuals-You will turn in your steps each Monday by 5p.m.

You will be able to participate in the random challenges for prizes. If you complete a random challenge, your name will be put in the hat for a prize drawing.

Anyone who participates in Colton’s Run this year will be put in a drawing to receive a prize. We will be giving away 5 prizes for this event. Submit a picture to jballew@se.edu with your runner/walker numbered tag at the event. Please specify which event you participated in, the fun run, 5k, or 10k.

You will need to weigh on the same scales every week for consistency. Scales are in the Office of the President, Student Wellness Services, or the Wellness Center. Each participant is allowed 30 minutes a day for exercise and the campus is a great place for a walk.

Also, If I don’t already have your t-shirt size or team name, please send it to me.

Good luck to everyone!! I can’t wait to get started!!!
