Fitness Incentive Programs

Get Fit

The Get Fit Program is a cross training incentive program that rewards participants with prizes for the number of times an individual exercises throughout the year. Prizes are given after 20 or 40 workouts are completed and recorded throughout the semester.

In addition to proper nutrition and effective stress relief, exercise is a major component of a healthy lifestyle. Regular, consistent, workouts offer health benefits, including prevention of certain diseases, improving mood and energy, strengthening bones and muscles, increasing bodily function and coordination and increasing cardiovascular endurance and stamina.
