Physical Activity


The fitness challenges offered through the Emory Recreation and Wellness Program provides Emory students, faculty, and staff with fun and competitive activities that promote physical activity. Challenges typically range from one to three weeks in length and include structured plans that guide participants through a variety of exercises. Most challenges require participants to log their workouts in order to track their progress. At the end of each challenge participants who successfully complete all of the requirements will have the opportunity to win great prizes, such as, t-shirts, gift cards, Fitbits, etc. The goal of the fitness challenges is to get the Emory community more active!
