Get Fit Stay Fit is a new program developed collaboratively by several Bradley University Departments to challenge the Bradley University Community to become more active and make better nutritional decisions. The following departments have contributed to the development of the program: Bradley Dining Services (ARAMARK), the Wellness Program, Health and Counseling Services, Campus Recreation, the Center for Learning Assistance, the Dietetics Department, the Physical Therapy Department, the Body Project, and Late Night BU.
Who is the program designed for?
All Bradley Students, Faculty and Staff are encouraged to participate. There will not be a fee to participate.
What are the dates for the program?
The program will be offered for 14 weeks, beginning Monday, August 27, 2012, and finishing Friday, November 30, 2012. Registration begins August 27, 2012.
What are the program details?
The program has been designed to promote healthy lifestyle decisions. A point system has been created to track each individual’s participation. Participants will be able to score points by working out, viewing and submitting quizzes on various wellness topics with Sakai. Incentive items will be given for several different point levels. This is not a competition, and it will not be necessary for individuals to be weighed or measured at any time. This program is entirely participation based, and in most cases you will be on your own to check in and maintain your own record.
Where do I register?
You can register at the Control Desk or in the Campus Recreation Office, Room 120 of the Markin Center. The office is open Monday – Friday from 8:00am – 5:00pm.
Where do I sign in to maintain my individual record and can I workout at another facility and still participate?
Individual files for each participant will be created and maintained at the Markin Center Control Desk. There will be a report pulled on Friday’s so you can ask the attendant to tell you how many times you have worked out. Attendance at the Wellness Seminars will be maintained by a sign in sheet. Cards will be available in the Campus Recreation Office, Markin 120 for those participants who choose to work out at other facilities.
What are the levels for the motivational items?
When you register you will be given a prize in room 120 Campus Recreation Office. Once you accumulate 15 points you will receive a pedometer and 30 points you will receive a Get Fit, Stay Fit T-Shirt. At the conclusion of the program, all participants that have accumulated 50 points or more will be entered into a drawing. Names drawn from this group will receive some fun prizes, including Group Fitness Passes for the following semester, a locker certificate for the Markin Center, and other fitness related products. Throughout the semester, be on the lookout in Sakai for opportunities to gain additional points. There will be taste tests in the Markin Center, Late Night BU events, and other campus programs that qualify for points.
Who do I contact if I have questions about the program?
