Black Bear Fit A Great Example
On almost a weekly basis, your University of Maine System Wellness Team processes and approves a new multi-session or community event proposal that can help you meet your Level 2 incentive and qualify for a modest cash award
So keeping in touch with your campus Wellness Champions, (See Wellness Guide), and your campus recreation center colleagues can pay some big dividends for you in pursuing a healthier and happier lifestyle
Looking for an example? Did you know that University of Maine Campus Recreation and RiseUp partner on a program called Black Bear Fit? Designed to see each individual improve in ways that are meaningful to them, the series of sixty-minute workouts includes a warm-up, a variety of strength and cardio exercises, and a cool/down/stretching period.
UM Campus Recreation offers Black Bear Fit every semester with the earned Level 2 incentive almost covering the cost for both members and non-members.
Benefits of Black Bear Fit include:
Teams of four to six people create a supportive social environment
Each week, participants join with their teammates for two training sessions with their personal trainer
Fitness Assessments at the start and finish of the program track progress
Teams are scored based on session attendance and recreational exercise
Prizes are awarded to the team with the highest score
UMaine employees earn their Level 2 Wellness incentive
The next start date for Black Bear Fit is September 17, 2018
