Spring Into Action! – a group exercise participation challenge:

April 2 through May 25, 2018

Spring is here (finally), and Summer is just around the corner. This means warmer temperatures and vacations, for many of us, are rapidly approaching. Staring April 2, we challenge you to Spring into Action and join us for a group exercise class challenge. All fitness levels are encouraged to participate!

Group Exercise Classes offer a variety of benefits, including:

  • A consistent weekly exercise schedule
  • A safe and effectively designed workout
  • An accountability factor for those participating in the group exercise class
  • A workout that requires no prior exercise knowledge or experience
  • Exposure to a social and fun environment

Register for this group exercise challenge through the Fitness & Wellness Office, 501-7559, or with a staff fitness trainer.

Challenge Directions:

  • Print out the current Fitness Program/Group Exercise Schedule
  • Get the group exercise class punch card from the Fitness & Wellness Office
  • Start attending the group exercise class(es) of your choice. The Fitness & Wellness Division offers 18 group exercise classes per week.
    • Beginners (employees new to HealthTrip and current members who are not participating in any group exercise classes) – your goal is to participate in at least 2 group exercise classes each week throughout the duration of this challenge.
    • Regulars (HealthTrip members who are currently attending group exercise classes on a weekly basis) – your goal is to participate in 3 or more group exercise classes each week throughout the duration of this challenge.

National Employee Health and Fitness Day

We invite all employees to come join the festivities of our Fitness and Fun event.

  • Wednesday will begin at 11:30 a.m. and the fitness events are geared towards those who want to be more competitive and showcase what they are capable of. Each of the fitness events will be to scale for your fitness level but make sure to bring your A-game!
  • Friday will begin at 12:30 p.m. and this is going to be your time to have fun! Think of this day as an adult field day with some unique and challenging events.

You can choose to participate in one or both days. That is up to you. We hope to see you there.
