1. MVP Work Well, Live Well Tracker!

Reporting Link: http://mvphealthcare.articulate-online.com/3564184859
**Select "no" if it asks you to continue from your last visit!
**When entering weeks one through six - chose the last option on the second screen!
**Every slide needs a response!

Instructions:
Click on the link above to visit the tracking software MVP has created for us. Every Friday between 2/1/13 through and including 4/26/13 your sole responsibility is to log on and enter your weight. You may also elect to enter any new healthy activites you started since the start of the challenge. This can be as simple to switching to skim milk to participating in one of our "mini" programs.

Approximetely every two weeks you will be notified of how we performed as a college. At the midpoint of the program, and again at the end, you will be emailed your progress directly.

There will be awards and raffles for % weight lost, participation levels (entering data x% of the weeks), and for healthy behaviors. Be creative with your healthy behaviors! It might just win you something!

HOW TO enter your data: When you click on the above link review the first few slides. You will then be asked to enter your name, telephone number, week you are entering data for (note - for the first six weeks you have to enter the week on the first slide, then "weeks 1-6" on slide 2 before you can submit), health activities, a description of them, and general comments. Each field needs an answer to be submitted. This will take you about 2 minutes once you are familiar with the software.

*****Note: There is NO cost for any of the programs listed on this web page*****

2. Supplemental Programs

Fitness Assessments/Body Age Test
Fitness Assessments-Polar body age software.  Participants need to wear workout clothes, like shorts or sweatpants and a t-shirt.  If they wear sweatpants they need to be able to pull them up above the knee for body fat testing. Participants will have their body composition, muscular strength, cardiovascular fitness, and flexibility measured and will receive a print out of the results as well as their “body age” which the software determines based on the results of their fitness tests.

This is new STATE OF THE ART technology - we highly recommend considering it.

You will have a chance to come back at the end of the challenge and see your progress.
