UT Tyler Readies for Governor’s Fitness Challenge
The University of Texas at Tyler is gearing up to participate for the second year in the Texas Round-Up Governor’s Fitness Challenge March 5 – 29.
The Texas Round-Up is a statewide effort to encourage Texans of all fitness levels to incorporate daily physical activity and healthy choices into their lives. Program participants should be physically active for at least 30 minutes a day five days a week, or 150 minutes a week, for six weeks.
University incentives include time to participate, prizes and special wellness programs, including the “Walks with the President” led each Wednesday morning by Dr. Rod Mabry. To learn more about the incentives, visit http://www.uttyler.edu/hpc.
The 30 minutes can be accumulated throughout the day or at one time. Activities include, but are not limited to, walking between campus buildings, taking stairs instead of elevators, walking while shopping, yard work and aerobic, cardio or strength work-outs.
