Step Into Spring with OneWellU’s Walking ProgramPosted Apr. 28, 2014
Take advantage of the latest OneWellU Walking Program to help you get fit and stay motivated. The free eight-week walking program is open to all faculty and staff. Participants are eligible to win weekly prizes and health tips as you strive for a healthier you! This eight-week session will run from May 9 through July 3.
How it Works
All new participants will receive a FREE pedometer. Participants must log their daily steps using the American Heart Association Activity Tracker online. Using this website, participants also will 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 in collaboration with the American Heart Association.
Throughout the eight-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* ($25 gift card). 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* ($25 gift card). The participant with the most steps tracked at the end of the eight-week program, will win an Ipod Nano. All participants will receive weekly reminders to log their steps and health tips also will be provided. For more information and instructions for registration, visit the OneWellU website.
Note: A participant may only win the weekly prize on one occasion throughout the duration of the eight-week walking program.
