The holidays are a
notoriously tough time to avoid putting on extra pounds. A Healthier U and the
Drexel Recreation Center are here to help with “Maintain Don’t Gain,” a
six-week health improvement challenge program that encourages employees to
maintain or lose weight through nutrition and fitness.
Each participant will
weigh in at the beginning of the program in late November and weigh out at
the end, after the New Year.
Laura Sherbondy, the
Coordinator of Fitness and Wellness for Drexel Recreational Athletics,
willconduct the weigh-ins and track each participant’s weight at the beginning
and again at the conclusion of the program. Laura will also be available to
answer any questions that arise during the initial or final weigh-ins.
will be conducted in a private room at the
Recreation Center (33rd and Market Streets) the week before Thanksgiving on
Monday November 21st and Tuesday November 22nd from
11:00am-1:00pm and 4:00-6:00pm.
Tell the Welcome Center
Desk Staff that you want to participate in Maintain Don’t Gain and they will
direct you to the private weigh-in area (room 309-A, the Health, Fitness, &
Wellness Office). Or simply stop by room 309-A during the above hours.
A follow-up weigh-out
will be conducted by Laura on Tuesday January 3rd and
Wednesday January 4th from 11:00am-1:00pm and 4:00-6:00pm.
Participants who remain
within 2 pounds of their starting weight will receive their choice of A
Healthier U promotional item (a t-shirt, sweatshirt, or lunch cooler, first come,
first served!) as an incentive. Get some hands-on help to keep
maintaining your health! Maintain Don’t Gain is open to all Drexel
University faculty and professional staff.
