Fitness Challenge 2008

Carnegie Mellon has introduced Fitness Challenge 2008: Help Your Heart, Use Your Feet. The objective of the challenge is to have competitors exercise for only 20 minutes a day, four days a week for six weeks starting today.
Each participant will receive a pair of red shoelaces once a completed form has been submitted to the University Center sports desk attendant to demonstrate his or her participation in the Challenge. Each participant must track his or her own progress on the Fitness Challenge chart after each workout. The chart is located on the stadium-side University Center entrance wall.
Exercise can take place anywhere, as long as the workout minutes are accurate and properly logged on the UC charts. As long as the participants are active — whether it’s taking a physical education or Group X-ercise class, lifting weights, doing cardio, or playing a pick-up game — the 20 minutes will count towards the end goal: being healthy. Prizes will be given out and a raffle will be held for every participant who meets challenge requirements. The raffle will take place on March 18 in the Danforth Lounge from noon to 1 p.m. Registration forms are available at the UC Sports Desk.
