Cross Training Challenge registration now open, begins Jan. 18

Registration is open for Western Carolina University’s 2016 Cross Training Challenge in which participants select three exercise categories, such as running/walking, recreational activities or strength training, and then log participation in related fitness activities over an eight-week period beginning Monday, Jan. 18.

Runners in the 2012 half marathon count off the miles as they make progress along the Tuckaseigee River.

All faculty, staff and students, as well as other Campus Recreation Center members who wish to participate, are asked to register at the front desk of the CRC and then record the amount of time they spend each day in fitness activities on the 2016 Cross Training Challenge tracking form. The challenge concludes Friday, March 11, and participants who achieve set goals in three exercise categories and submit their completed tracking forms will win a T-shirt.

The challenge is designed to encourage and promote physical activity and improved health for all members of the WCU community.

“The Cross Training Challenge is a great way to kick off the new year and become a healthier you,” said Mandy Dockendorf, assistant director for fitness and wellness. “This program was created for participants to have the freedom to set their own goals and be successful in accomplishing them. If you work best with having accountability, grab a co-worker or friend and take the challenge together. The challenge can help make 2016 your best year yet.”

Faculty and staff do not need to be a member of the Campus Recreation Center to participate. For more information on the Cross Training Challenge and other wellness resources available on campus, visit the Whee for Life website at wheeforlife.wcu.edu.
