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!



March is National Nutrition Month so we are celebrating by eating clean and getting lean in this 3-week nutrition challenge! The Clean & Lean Challenge aims to improve your diet and increase physical activity. The challenge provides participants with a nutrition and fitness plan to encourage healthy eating and exercise. Participants are to start one new nutrition habit a week and continue each one for the remainder of the challenge. The challenge also has a fitness component in which participants need to earn a certain amount of points each week in strength training, cardio, and flexibility exercises. Those who complete the challenge will be awarded great prizes and a chance to win a meal prep lunchbox and personal smoothie blender! Register at the WPEC 4th floor front desk or online at If you have any questions email
