Program Description:
This is a FREE wellness program for UNR students where you will receive information on nutrition and physical activity through a weekly session, tracking, and lots of fun activities! This is a program for all levels of fitness! You can do things at your own N-ergy level!
Sessions are held weekly.

The BASIC program schedule looks like this:

Week 1 2/12, 5-6pm*, JCSU, Physical Activity (walking or circuit workouts)
Week 2 2/19, 5-6pm*, JCSU, Nutrition Module (fruits and veggies or calories)
Week 3 2/26, 5-6pm*, JCSU, Nutrition Module (beverages or my plate)
Week 4 3/5, 5-6pm*, JCSU Planning Module (meal planning or breakfast)
Week 5 3/12, 5-6pm*, Not in person, final online evaluation

These weekly meetings are considered mandatory, because this is where you will receive your module, incentives, activity for the week and raffle tickets – so do your best to attend!
There are also additional activities that are not mandatory throughout the month, such as walks, hikes, group fitness classes, nutritionists and counselors. We encourage you to participate in as many activities as your schedule allows. You will receive raffle tickets for each activity you attend that will be entered in our weekly raffle for some awesome prizes.

Participation Requirements:
- You must be a UNR student (no minimum credit requirement)
- You must be considered medically safe to participate (you will complete a Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire on your first day).
