Faculty/Staff Exercise Program

This program is specifically designed to assist those individuals who may  benefit from a more structured and personal exercise program due to a sedentary  lifestyle (not currently participating in at least 30 minutes of moderate  physical activity three days/week for at least three months) or for individuals  who may have some risk factors that require more supervision, such as  hypertension, diabetes, family history of heart or coronary disease, metabolic  disease, etc.  Visit the Faculty/Staff Exercise Program page for more information.

 

OneWellU Walking Program  - August 25 to October 19

This program is specifically designed to help you to get fit and stay motivated!

All new participants will receive a free pedometer, if requested at registration. Participants may use any device for tracking steps and must log their daily steps using the American Heart Association (AHA) Activity Tracker online at www.startwalkingnow.org. 

By creating your profile in the AHA website, participants will also have the ability to track their diet, create and locate walking paths, form walking groups and access a personalized walking plan, developed by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) in collaboration with the AHA.

Throughout the 8-week program, participants can be entered into a weekly prize drawing. Each employee that walks and tracks at least 56,000 steps/week (average of 8,000 steps/day) for the first four weeks will be entered to win a weekly prize. During the second four weeks of the program, participants must track at least 70,000 steps each week (average of 10,000 steps/day) to be entered to win a weekly prize. A participant may only win the weekly prize on one occasion throughout the duration of the 8-week walking program. The participant with the most steps tracked at the end of the 8-week program, will win an Ipod Nano. Participants will receive weekly reminders to log their steps and health tips will be provided.

ALL participants must register for the walking program HERE.

NEW participants (first time participants) must also use the provided instructions HERE to enroll on the AHA walking website.

*Note: Weekly winner can only win once per session. Grand prize winners may not win again in same calendar year. Runner-up will be selected. All prizes are subject to tax.



 

Weight Watchers at Work

As part of the OneWellU program, Kent State University offers the convenience of attending Weight Watchers at Work meetings during your lunch time. 

The Weight Watchers at Work program will hold its weekly meetings every Tuesday from noon – 1 p.m. in the Kent State Student Center, Room 310C (location is subject to change- notices will be posted)

This is a great opportunity to learn more about the program and experience a weekly meeting without any commitment. There is a discount for Kent State employees who enroll in either of the two weight loss offerings listed below:

Weight Watchers meetings with Monthly Pass is a good choice for employees at any Kent State campus who want to try Weight Watchers but do not want a lengthy commitment. The monthly pass gives you greater control and flexibility to determine what works best with your schedule. You can attend an "at work" meeting or take advantage of unlimited access to meetings in your community. You will also be able to use e-tools to track weight, find great recipes and more. The monthly cost for a pass is $39.95, which is discounted from the price you would pay if you enrolled at a community meeting.

For details and more information, visit the Weight Watchers at Work page.
