  • Meet with the SWEAT Coordinator to discuss your goals and create a workout program for you to do on your own.
  • Participate in a wellness challenge to help you get active, lose weight, or meet people.
  • Check out the resources for a listing of local groups and facilities to keep your fitness fresh.
  • Options may change per semester. 

Have an idea for a group activity?
Setting it up is as easy as 1-2-3.

  2. Commit to showing up!  Depending on the activity, as the Group Leader you will be responsible for bringing a laptop/DVDs, sports equipment, etc. and setting up the workout.
