Past Fitness Workshops and Competitions 

Fitness Challenge 1  

Be part of an active CSUB Community! The CSUB Wellness Fall Fitness Challenge is a program being offered for students, faculty, and staff. Challenge yourself to see how much time you can accumulate with exercise, physical activity, and movement. Each week, we will provide tips to stay active, learn something new, and have fun. We know this will be a unique semester, so our goal is to build and maintain an active community, virtually. Success will be measured quantitively by the number of participants, but more focused on the qualitative information received each week (how participants felt after working out, likelihood of working out again the same week, and notes/comments)

Virtual 5k Walk & Run

The purpose of this first ever 5k (virtual) event is the bring the SRC and CSUB Community together with fitness. Running, or even walking, a 5k can be intimidating, but we’re here to help participants achieve success, feeling like they’re supported whether near or far. The event will take place at participants’ own pace throughout the week, allowing it to be completed over the course of one day or many days. Participants can submit a screenshot of data from an app used while doing their exercise. Incentive prizes will be provided to participants in a variety of categories including fastest time, most improved, best effort, and most creative outfit.

Weightlifting Workshop  

Learn the basics of weightlifting during our Zoom session with Tyler Moffit! Sit back, relax, and take notes, ask questions, or take the opportunity to participate and join in!

Our goal is to encourage at-home fitness, but also to educate those with access to weights who are unsure of proper techniques.
