Finalize your registration and receive a complimentary AhealthyU ball cap!
As the temperature outside begins to drop, so can your motivation to exercise. This 28 day challenge is designed to encourage all faculty and staff to MOVE more this fall. All healthy adults need 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity 5 or more days per week. Log any type of physical activity, win prizes, and support your health and well-being!
After you register, you will receive an email from "MOVE Technical Support" that will guide you through finalizing your registration and creating your "Well on Track" account. Well on Track is a digital health platform that allows AhealthyU to
capture each participant's activity data for reporting weekly standings.
Note: Once you connect to the Well on Track online platform, you will not need to access this site again during the Challenge. To view your progress, you will access your own tracking tool or application that you chose for logging your activity from the list of compatible tracking tools (for example, your Fitbit app).
3. Start logging your daily activities.
Activities may be logged using steps OR minutes
You must decide at registration which method you would like to use for the duration of the program
MINUTES: Most tracking tools require that you manually log your activity and minutes in the application
STEPS: Step tracking devices automatically capture your steps, as long as you are wearing the device properly
AhealthyU will convert your steps and minutes to points
Prize money will be donated to an approved AU scholarship fund chosen by the top 5 highest scoring participants.
