Wellness Program Targets Faculty and Staff

Truman faculty and staff members can use the new school year as an opportunity to change their health and activity habits by signing up for the Fall 2008 TruFit MOVE IT, LOSE IT Wellness program.

TruFit MOVE IT, LOSE IT is a 12-week education and physical activity program focused on teaching group members the skills needed to empower lifetime health behavior changes. The program will incorporate behavior education sessions Mondays from 5:10-6:15 p.m. to assist members in learning skills such as creating motivation for change, goal setting for success and combating negative thoughts. Participants will also choose from a variety of activities as their weekly physical commitment.

In addition to the educational and fitness sessions, group members will receive orientation to the Student Recreation Center, instruction in the use of a heart rate monitor, a pedometer to track activity and body composition testing. There will be an informational meeting Sept. 8 at 5:15 p.m. in Pershing (room to be determined). Regular meetings will begin Sept. 15 and continue through Dec. 1.
