Spelman Wellness Unveils 'Freshman 15' Rewards Program
Spelman Wellness is doing its part to help first-year students avoid the dreaded "freshman 15" weight gain. Beginning Monday, Aug. 19, members of the class of 2017 will learn fun and innovative strategies to get and stay healthy while also earning cool prizes. The "Freshman 15" Rewards Program is a new initiative designed to allow students to earn points for prizes by staying active and educating themselves about healthy behaviors.
On Tuesday, Aug. 20, students are invited to start the year off on the right track by participating in the Spelman Wellness Fitness Fun Day. Whether it's working up a sweat in the Read Hall gymnasium or participating in a variety of 30-minute preview classes such as Zumba, Boom Shock N Lock, or Flirty Girl Fitness, every time students complete an activity, they can receive points on their tracking sheets from the Spelman Wellness Center staff.
At the end of September, points will be added up and prizes will be awarded based on students' placement. Students can also earn points by following Spelman Wellness on Facebook and Twitter, scheduling a fitness assessment and an appointment with the College's registered dietitian, and more. Prizes include iPhone skins, iPhone pockets, athletic arm bands, yoga mats, and jump ropes. The program is part of Healthy U Interactive, an online health and wellness platform featuring engaging, interactive tools that guide students to better health.
