Get Fit Challenge

 

It’s time to get back on track!!!

Winter 2023 Commit To Get Fit

Welcome to a New Session of Commit To Get Git. We will be doing an eight-week fitness challenge.

It’s time to get rid of that holiday weight gain and get back into good habits!!! We are going to be focusing on exercise and good health habits.  Let’s stay healthy and active.

The challenge will start January 16th and end March 10th.  Sign up will end on January 12th. We will be doing teams or individuals. The individuals will only be responsible for steps. At the end, the top three individuals will receive a prize.  The teams will have steps, weight loss percentages, exercise, and weekly challenges that they will receive points for. At the end of the challenge, we will give prizes for the top three teams in points. We will also give a prize for the team with the top steps and the team with the largest weight loss percentage.  There will be some random prizes given away during the challenge.  We will be giving a participation gift to everyone who completes the challenge.

Commit To Get Fit Rules:

Team Captains will report weight loss percentages, exercise, challenge points, and steps every Monday to jballew@se.edu.  We will count from Monday to Sunday in our totals, with the exception of the last week, it will be Monday March 6th thru Wednesday March 8th.

Results will be sent out via email every Tuesday so participants can monitor their team or an individual placement in the competition.

Initial weigh in will be on Monday January 16th. You will weigh every Monday, and the last Wednesday. You will need to weigh on the same scales every week for consistency.  Scales are located in the Office of the President, Student Wellness Services, or the Wellness Center.
