St. Thomas is challenging Augsburg College once again to see which school is more physically active. Since Augsburg won the traveling trophy last year, UST will have to work harder to secure a victory in 2011.
All faculty and staff can participate in the nine weeks of competition from Feb. 16 to April 19. Work out at the location of your choice for at least the required 30 minutes (one point) to a maximum of 60 minutes of activity (two points). You can break it down to 10 minutes of continuous exercise three times a day (totals 30 minutes per day). Two points per day and 14 points per week is the maximum you can record. See a list of suggested activities below.
The UST Health and Human Performance Department and Augsburg College Faculty-Staff Fitness Wellness Program will add up the weekly totals and announce the school winner. After the nine weeks of competition, the school that has won the most weeks will take the trophy.
Rules of the Competition:
This is a fun competition between Augsburg and St. Thomas, but the main goal is to get faculty and staff motivated to add some physical activity into their weekly routine amid the doldrums of winter.
Activity suggestions include: biking, dancing, gardening, running, Pilates, stretching, swimming, shoveling, snowshoeing, skating, sledding, skiing, snowboarding, walking, walking a dog, weight training and yoga. (Sorry, house cleaning doesn’t count.)
