Fall fitness programs for faculty, staff announced
12:15 p.m., Aug. 27, 2013--University of Delaware faculty and staff are invited to register now for HealthTrails, an eight-week wellness campaign that runs from Sept. 23-Nov. 17 and is sponsored by the Office of Human Resources’ Employee Wellness Program.
During the campaign, participants have access to an interactive online portal with activity tracking tools, weekly wellness tips, healthy recipes, and optional social networking features.
Getting ready for the new year
This fall’s program has a travel theme and participants can convert their minutes of physical activity, servings of fruits and vegetables consumed and work/life balance activities into virtual travel miles and “visit” attractions along six famous trails across the globe.
The online program provides real-time tracking for individuals and for teams, as well as the opportunity to invite co-workers to support each other as trail mates. The cost is 20 Wellness Dollars and registration is open through Sept. 26.
Additional fall fitness programs include employee-only fitness classes and individual fitness services, including personal training.
Faculty, staff, students and community members are also invited to participate in the HealthyU 5K Fun Walk/Run to be held beginning at 6 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 3. The course will wind through East Campus, along the city of Newark’s James F. Hall Trail and end with a lap of The Green, finishing in front of Gore Hall.
