Summer Shape Up!

JUNE 13-AUGUST 7, 2016



How it works:

Summer Shape Up runs eight weeks and each week focuses on a different area of wellness and you will have a small challenge to complete that is associated with that area of wellness.
Example) If the theme of the week is Environmental Wellness then your challenge may be something like “Eat your lunch outside and appreciate the beauty of the day. Take a picture and tag us!”  (*Note: This is not one of the challenges!)

Each week’s info posted at the bottom of this page.

How to earn prizes:

Each week has a prize associated with it. These prizes range from massages, to personal training sessions, to Outdoor Recreation gear rentals, and Personalized Nutrition Coaching sessions. The prize for each week is listed at the end of the information sheet.
Once you complete a challenge, you simply “tag” the VRWC on Facebook or Twitter with your challenge completion proof. This can be a picture or a statement, depending on what that week’s challenge directs you to do.
Here’s an Example using the Environmental Wellness challenge:
“I would take a picture of how pretty it was outside and post it to Facebook and tag “@Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center”. This would be 1 entry. I could post a picture everyday and it would be a total of 7 entries.
*If I ate dinner outside and posted pictures of that (and tagged the VRWC!) then I would have more entries…and so on. We aren’t too picky…this is supposed to be fun :) All the entries go into a random drawing and the winner of that week’s prize is contacted and announced on Monday.

I’m ready, let’s get started!

First, get connected with us on social media so tagging will be a breeze.
