Return to Laker Country: A Faculty/Staff Fitness Challenge

It's time to grab a partner, get back to campus, and get active!

GVSU Benefits and Wellness is offering a six-week virtual fitness challenge where faculty and staff can partner up to meet weekly physical activity goals. Our hopes are that faculty and staff can find a renewed sense of energy, well-being, and connection with their fellow colleagues as we all adjust to a new way of life on campus.

The challenge is simple: get out and get active. Once you have signed up, either choose a partner or be paired with one to meet a combined daily goal of physical activity. You will set and track your goal using the Google Fit app. There will be a minimum amount of steps as well as heart points to be reached each day by teams. Participants will be encouraged to exceed the minimum and prizes for the top teams will be given.

We understand that returning to campus may be a big adjustment for some and want to do our best to help our faculty and staff maintain their best physical and mental well being.
