The Pac-10 Fitness Challenge is a conference-wide initiative that promotes regular physical activity and will be occuring Nov. 5-9. People do not need to be a member of the Student Recreation Center to participate.
“This is an awesome way to promote being active,” said Theresa Lehman, assistant director of marketing for University Recreation.
To participate in the event, people need to log on to the Fitness Challenge Tracker at http://pac10fitnesschallenge.wsu.edu and record their physical activity for the week. Activities can range from walking to rugby, with many options in between.
“This is really based on everyone’s participation at their own level,” Lehman said. “It can be anything you do. If you walk to work, if you bike to work, if you walk up flights of stairs…all of that can be logged.”
To support the Challenge, University Recreation is offering several campus-wide events to encourage people to be active. One event is the all-campus walk on Nov. 7 at 12 p.m. Butch, the WSU marching band, and staff from UREC & Athletics will walk around campus—picking several other colleagues up along the way.
