If you haven't registered already, then please log in to MyBU to do so. Click on MY INFO and one of the drop down options will read GET FIT STAY FIT. This will direct you to another page where you can follow the directions from there to register.

Remember

You must register each year. Visit the Sakai site after you register to stay up to date with Get Fit Stay Fit information.

Program Description

Get Fit Stay Fit is an incentive program developed collaboratively by several Bradley University Departments to challenge the Bradley University Community to become more active and make better nutritional decisions. The following departments have contributed to the development of the program: Bradley Dining Services (ARAMARK), the Wellness Program, Health and Counseling Services, Campus Recreation, the Center for Learning Assistance, the Dietetics Department, the Physical Therapy Department, the Body Project, and Late Night BU. Our mission statement is "Get Fit, Stay Fit is a program developed collaboratively by campus departments to challenge the Bradley University community to become more active and make healthy nutritional decisions. The program is driven by self-motivation, challenging the individual to achieve personal goals at their own pace. Get Fit, Stay Fit encourages and believes in becoming a healthier you."

Who is the program designed for?

All Bradley Students, Faculty and Staff are encouraged to participate. There will not be a fee to participate.

What are the dates for the program?

The program will run from Monday, September 1, to Friday, December 5. Participants are welcomed and encouraged to register and join during any point in the semester. The program will reset all points earned in the fall semester and restart in the spring semester.

What are the program details?

The program has been designed to promote healthy lifestyle decisions. A point system has been created to track each individual’s participation. Participants will be able to score points by working out, viewing and submitting quizzes on various wellness topics with Sakai, or by coming to specific Get Fit, Stay Fit functions, such as the Fit Fair. Incentive items will be given for several different point levels. This is not a competition, and it will not be necessary for individuals to be weighed or measured at any time. This program is entirely participation based, and in most cases you will be on your own to check in and maintain your own record.

Where do I register?

You can now register online on your MyBU. Once you log in to your MyBU, click on MY INFO and one of the drop down options will read GET FIT STAY FIT. This will direct you to another page where you can follow the directions from there to register. You will then be able to track your points from this page!

Where do I sign in to maintain my individual record and can I workout at another facility and still participate?

Track your own points online under the Get Fit, Stay Fit tab in MyBU. Individual files for each participant will be created and maintained at the Campus Recreation Office. Swipe your ID to get into Markin in order to receive your Get Fit, Stay Fit point for the day. Attendance at various Get Fit, Stay Fit events will be maintained by a sign in sheet. If you do not workout at the Markin Center, cards will be available in the Campus Recreation office, Markin Center 120, for those participants who choose to work out at other facilities to keep track of their own points.

What are the levels for the motivational items?

Once you accumulate 20 points you will receive a hot and cold therapy pack and 40 points you will receive a Get Fit, Stay Fit T-Shirt. At the conclusion of the program, all participants that have accumulated 55 points or more will be entered into a drawing. Names drawn from this group will receive some fun prizes, including Group Fitness Passes for the following semester, a locker certificate for the Markin Center, and other fitness related products. Throughout the semester, be on the lookout in Sakai for opportunities to gain additional points. There will be taste tests in the Markin Center, Late Night BU events, and other campus programs that qualify for points.
