Go Dons Get Fit Challenge

Category: Body

Category: physical wellness
Rules: check in each time that you exercise (examples below) and include the length of time; no maximum of daily check-ins or minutes
Duration: one month
Completion credit: 150 minutes of exercise = automatically entered into a raffle for a chance to win a prize

Physical wellness promotes proper care of our entire bodies for optimal health and functioning. Purposeful exercise (i.e. cardiovascular, strength training, etc.), cumulative daily movement, minimal sitting, proper rest and sleep, preventative medical care, and healthy eating habits are just some of the components of physical wellness that contribute to our overall well-being.

In this challenge, the focus is on purposeful exercise and daily movement, similar to the Go Move Challenge in February that takes place among AJCU faculty and staff. This October, USF faculty and staff will compete against USF students to inspire one another to move more!

Be sure to include your minutes and describe the type(s) of physical activity each time you check in.

  1. Great start fac/staff! Share how you’re earning your minutes. If you walk, run, play tennis, share here and maybe you can find a buddy to play with.

  8. Love doing group fitness challenges. We have a similar platform at CDPH. Does anyone know if there is future capability to sync fitness trackers to this platform? We have this at CDPH and it allows your fitness activity to immediately sync to your profile and only enter activity when necessary.

    • Hi Sharon, with this platform we will not be able to sync fitness trackers. we hired a 3rd party vendor to create the site and I originally requested a quote and it was crazy expensive and complex! I have my garmin that tracks everything and then I enter my minutes from that. Great question though. In an ideal world we would have it!

  9. 8 hours of fitness 😊πŸ’ͺ
