You can walk, bike, swim, dance, run, lift weights, take exercise classes…the possibilities are endless. Go solo or round up a few of your colleagues and create a team so you can support one another and yes, even exercise together!

To earn the credit for this challenge you must:

    • Log an average of at least 90 minutes of exercise activity weekly with a total of 540 minutes or more at the end of six weeks.When you complete your activity minutes is flexible. For example, you could perform all 90 minutes in one session, or you can break it up into three 30 minute sessions throughout the week…whatever works for you. If you miss one week, you can make it up during another week! In the end, you will need a total of at least 540 minutes of exercise over the course of 6 weeks. Log your activity weekly or daily.
    • Log completion of at least 1 on-campus wellness seminar or an approved online exercise video.The online videos are very short exercise demonstrations, so we encourage you to watch several so you can find exercises that meet your needs.
