Weight Loss Challenge
The Faculty and Staff Wellness Program weight loss challenge is a 6 week long challenge. During the 6 weeks participants will work on their own to reach their weight loss goals. Weigh ins will occur at the beginning and end of the challenge to record progress and determine winners. Throughout the challenge participants will receive check in emails and encouragement to help them on their journey.
To keep track of your fitness and nutrition, either while doing the challenge or for general daily use, we recommend using MyFitnessPal. It is not just a website for recording your exercise and nutrition, but it also comes in a convenient app for your phone! If you are participating in the weight loss challenge, we recommend you use this program to help you stay on track with your goals because we all know the more you put into something, the more you will get out of it.
Lifestyle Goal Challenge
The lifestyle goal challenge is a more holistic approach to fitness/wellness that allows YOU to choose what is best for YOU at this time when it comes to YOUR health and wellness.
Participants will set a goal that they want to achieve within 6 weeks. It can be weight loss, gain muscle, eat healthier, spend more time with friends and family really anything related to our 5 pillars of Wellness. From your goal you will receive an individualized goal sheet that will aid in you reaching your goal over the next 6 weeks. The overall goal is to commit to your goal with the commitment amount growing during the competition. We will start slow with a 1-2 day a week commitment, then 2-3 days a week, then 3-4 days a week ect. Slow commitments equal a higher chance of success and prolonged commitment to the goal/lifestyle. This model tends to turn goals into lifestyles. The program will also include a self-evaluation form, check-ins and motivational emails.
Those who complete all 6 weeks, hitting the goal each week will receive a prize pack.
