SWEAT

WHAT IS SWEAT?

SWEAT is a free program developed as part of a comprehensive wellness initiative for benefit eligible employees at Michigan Tech. This program is designed to be flexible and geared toward assisting Michigan Tech employees in adding more activity to their lives by offering a wide range of options.

Social Wellness. Reap the rewards of good mental & physical health while participating in a group activity such as skiing, ease into running, and hiking. Activities vary depending on the season and availability. Open to family and friends of employees.

Employee Action. Meet with a certified trainer to set up a personal fitness program that focuses on your individual training needs, whether beginning a fitness program for the first time or requiring advanced training for a triathlon or anywhere in between. Or participate in a group activity in Community Programs through SWEAT such as Pilates, yoga, etc.

Teamwork. Build a “culture of health” in your home, in your department and in your everyday life.  Work with those around you to enforce a healthy lifestyle by joining an informal group activity such as walking or volleyball.  Activities vary depending on member interests.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Eligible employees interested in the program should begin by contacting Benefit Services to be added to the email list. Events related to SWEAT will be emailed to the list, and you will be notified when a new group activity or personal training is available to you.

WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS WITHIN THE PROGRAM?

Participants may choose to be part of group activities such as walking or volleyball, have one-on-one training sessions and learn about equipment in the gym, or participate in yoga, bootcamp or other Community Program classes through SWEAT. These are only some options; possibilities are endless.

Free access to the Student Development Complex is available to participating members during each six-week session. Members completing personal training or an instructor-led activity receive 25% off the purchase of a minimum 3-month SDC membership and/or 25% off the purchase of an 8-punch Community Programs class specific card.  Employees are eligible to participate in a six-week session once per calendar year.
