The TeamOC Fitness Challenge promotes a healthy lifestyle and aims to provide participants with the tools they need to make a lifestyle change for the better.
Registration for Spring 2019 is now open.
The Fitness Challenge will start on January 14th, 2019, and go through April 14th, 2019.
The fitness challenge is now split into six categories, each one pertaining to specific needs or season of life.Each category has five main requirements; steps, weekly challenges, group fitness, hours of fitness, and community. These five requirements will differ slightly between each category. Within each category, the weekly challenges are determined based on the purpose of each category. You will choose one category per semester to participate in for the Fitness Challenge.
Fitness Challenge Categories:
New to Challenge
The New to Challenge category is for those new to the Fitness Challenge or who are eager to begin their fitness journey. In this challenge we encourage you to try new things while easing you into the world of fitness with support and guidance.
The General Fitness category is for those who are comfortable with exercise and are looking to maintain and tone their bodies while challenging their current routine with new insight and ideas.
The Weight Loss category is to aid those who have struggled with weight loss and are needing guidance with a structured exercise and nutrition routine. Through accountability and support, we hope this category promotes a lifestyle change.
Just For Fun
The Just For Fun category is for those who want to participate in the Challenge, but want to enjoy and discover new and fun ways to be active. In this category you are encouraged to include family and friends in many of your activities.
The Stress Relief category is for those who want to be active and involved but find themselves experiencing a stressful season of life. Focusing on stress relieving activities and mindfulness, this category will hopefully have a positive effect during this season.
The High Intensity category is for those experienced in exercise and who have a competitive spirit looking to challenge themselves. This category is meant to expand your horizons and push you beyond your current limits.
The Fitness Challenge will start on January 14th, 2019.
