Students Participating in PUMPkinFIt Event

Fitober

Turn Up Your Activity

Fitober encourages the campus community to get active in the month of October as ongoing movement is key to overall wellbeing. Teams made up of students, faculty/staff, and Campus Rec members log their physical activity from October 1-31. Participants can log any type of physical activity such as cardio, weight lifting, group fitness classes, intramural sports activities, or even just a brisk stroll.

This is also a friendly competition between Fitober teams. Teams with the highest overall physical activities at the end of October will be awarded 1st, 2nd, 3rd with prizes associated with each place.
