Spring Into Fitness Challenge
Exercise. Track your minutes. Repeat
Spring into Fitness and challenge yourself to perform "purposeful" physical activity for six weeks March 18 - April 28
Participate in an intercollegiate challenge against five other local colleges and universities: Elizabethtown College,
York College, Mount St. Mary's University, Franklin & Marshall College, and Dickinson College. So put those New Year's Resolutions to good use and win a victory for Gettysburg!
During the six-week period between March 18 and April 28, participants will be asked to track each minute of “purposeful” physical activity using an easy on-line tracking form. The exercise must be planned, purposeful physical activity performed with the intention of acquiring fitness or other health benefits.
There will be two Intercollegiate Competitions:
1. Greatest percentage of overall participation
2. Highest average number of purposeful exercise minutes per participant
Also, to make it even a little more interesting, we will be holding a separate internal competition between divisions of the College. The same two competitions will apply to our internal competition as well. Enjoy some Gettysburg division vs division fun!
So, make sure you encourage your colleagues to play along and track their minutes! If you work together as a team and keep each other motivated, you will have a chance to WIN the Divisional Competition….but more importantly, we want Gettysburg College to be the overall winner of the Intercollegiate Competition! Exercise. Track your minutes. Repeat!
We need to keep the trophy!
