Meredith College to Commit to Be Fit
The Meredith College community --students, faculty and staff -- are being encouraged to COMMIT TO BE FIT! A kickoff event for the program was held on Monday, Jan. 30, 2012, at 4 p.m. at Weatherspoon Gym.
Meredith community members joined President Jo Allen to kick off the Commit to Be Fit Challenge by walking a mile around campus. Other speakers at the kickoff included Be Active NC representatives. Meredith's program is sponsored in part by Be Active NC.
There are 1,440 minutes in a day. Commit to be physically active for 30 of these minutes, 5-days a week - for 8 weeks.
Itís Easy to Participate: Pick up your Commit to Be Fit materials at the Fitness Center, WSP Annex 103.
An optional activity is choosing a partner, filling out your commitment card and posting it on the Commit to Be Fit board (Cate Center) by February 6. If you choose not to post your card, please drop it off at the Fitness Center or mail to WSPA 103.
Track your daily physical activity on the Commit to Be Fit tracker through April 1 and submit to WSP Annex 103 by April 13. Trackers will be available in Cate Center, the Fitness Center or WSPA 103 starting January 30.
It does not matter where you do your activity; on campus, in a class or at another location is just fine. Just be active.
All submitted trackers (who have completed 8-weeks of tracking) will be eligible for random prize drawings and those who meet the commitment 6 of the 8 weeks will be entered to win one of the Grand Prizes.
