Take the Fitness Challenge to Improve Your Health

By: Brady W Moore   Published 12:37 pm / September 2, 2017

Students in the Department of Kinesiology invite you to participate in the 10-week challenge to improve your health and fitness.

The 10-week challenge is a friendly competition between Boise State employees to see who can improve their health and fitness the most across the semester. Faculty and staff will commit to participate for 10 weeks and KINES 432 Conditioning Principles students participating in service-learning will provide personal training.  The purpose of this semester-long project is to help faculty and staff improve their health and wellness by providing a knowledgeable trainer and external accountability. Clients and personal trainers will agree to meet a minimum of two times per week for 10 weeks. Faculty/staff will be provided times to train in the Kinesiology Annex weight room, and locker rooms are available.

Student personal trainers will develop and guide clients through an exercise routine designed to help participants meet their health and fitness goals. The number of student trainers may be limited, so first come, first served.

Participants will be required to complete a health history questionnaire before participating. We will compare before/after data: height, weight, body mass index (BMI), and resting heart rate and blood pressure, as well as appropriate performance measures (e.g. speed, power, strength). Those clients making the most significant improvement across all measures will be awarded prizes, as will their personal trainers.

Congratulations to the top five finishers from last semester’s challenge: Victoria Wood, Chris Uria, Fatima Cornwall, Danya Lusk, and Renee Walters.
