Would you like to start a new workout routine but you are unsure of where to begin? NEW U has partnered with the UC Fitness Center to create two 30-minute fitness programs to encourage you to either begin or try a new and improved fitness circuit. These program handouts can be found at the front desk for you to use at any time. Ask the front desk attendant if you are in need of assistance.
The program is designed to increase the amount of physical activity that employees engage in during working hours. The Stairs Challenge encourages employees to use the stairs in lieu of the elevator. By adding a few steps a day into your work routine you can increase your physical activity as well as improve your overall health and well-being. The Challenge begins March 3rd and runs through March 30th. We hope to see you on the stairs!
The Chair Challenge is a four week program designed to increase the amount of N.E.A.T. (Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis/Time) employees perform during working and nonworking hours. The Chair Challenge encourages employees to take N.E.A.T. physical activity breaks throughout the day. Performing these types of breaks will help with refocusing and clearing the mind, reduce stress levels, enhance blood flow and caloric burning, and provide a multitude of other physiological, social, emotional and intellectual benefits!
