The Warrior Way: Program Outline, Agenda, and Event Descriptions

The Warrior Way is an incentive-based student wellness program created to help support students in beginning and maintaining a healthy lifestyle in college. The Warrior Way is not about losing weight or getting toned; It’s about getting healthy! Eating well, moving your body, getting enough sleep, managing stress, and supporting mental health – all of these things work together to support your overall health, keep you feeling good, and contribute to your success in school. It’s the healthy way...the Warrior Way.

 

Here’s how it works:

Each week has a theme – physical activity, nutrition, stress management & mental health, and putting it all together. Activities related to each week’s theme are available – from workshops to workouts to information tables. You earn points for attending events and taking part in healthy activities on your own. At the end of the program, participants with the most points are entered into drawings for a free personal training package, and various gift cards. So, the more you participate, the greater your chance of winning a prize.

 

You will receive a detailed spreadsheet of point breakdown and how you can track your points and progress throughout the program at registration. The participant with the most number of points at the conclusion of the program will win the grand prize. Second, third, and fourth place prizes will also be awarded. Attendance will be taken at most events and all points will be verified at the conclusion of the program.

 

Whether or not you win a prize, everyone wins by participating, because good health is priceless! So make a commitment to yourself – to live The Warrior Way.
