Students, Employees Rewarded for Dedication to Personal Fitness
Faculty & Staff
Throughout the spring semester, Penn College students and employees competed at the Fitness Center to win prizes and reach their personal fitness goals. In one competition, The Resolutions Fitness Challenge, participants tracked their exercise progress for 12 weeks as an accountable incentive to stick to their New Year's resolutions. Four first-place prizes were awarded across categories for male/female students and male/female employees. "This particular competition was a great way to motivate members to get to the gym and exercise," explained Domenick S. Schiraldi-Irrera, fitness center assistant, "as the playing field is leveled with points being accumulated on overall time spent exercising." Another competition, The CC Cycling Challenge, was offered during the second half of the semester for members who enjoy indoor cycling. Participants tracked the distance they "traveled" on the stationary bikes at the Fitness Center over four weeks to see who could bike the farthest. Prizes were awarded for first, second and third places. For more information on future competitions, stop by the Fitness Center (Bush Campus Center, second floor). Congratulations to all of the winners on their hard work and dedication!
