The U-Crossing Stairs Challenge is an initiative to encourage faculty, staff and students to use the stairs in U-Crossing instead of taking the elevators if they are physically able to do so.
This program will start February 1 and will end on March 1. Here is how the program works:
Please Note: For those who are not physically able to walk the stairs you can complete alternate exercises to participate including: simply complete 30 seconds of arm circles or arm movements similar to walking fast or running. This can be done inside your elevator ride or wherever you feel comfortable participating inside U-Crossing. Each 30 second set of exercise will be the equivalent of one flight of stairs. Campus Recreation can supply small hand weights to increase the difficulty if you wish to increase your effort. If you are interested in checking out small hand weights, please email: Diana_Davis@uml.edu.
After the punch cards are collected each week, we will raffle off a prize or prizes for that week. At the end of the program one grand prize winner will be announced. Weekly prizes will include t-shirts, water bottles, shaker cups and more!
The grand prize will be a free personal training package to the Campus Recreation Center. This includes five personal training sessions which incorporate a comprehensive fitness assessment and individualized workout program.
