Faculty and Staff Complete Fall 2018 Fitness Challenge

by

Hats off to the top five finalists of the Fall 2018 Fitness Challenge, sponsored by the School of Allied Health Sciences Department of Kinesiology.

The Fitness Challenge is a friendly competition between Boise State employees who train with kinesiology students over the course of one semester to see who improved their health and fitness most. Faculty and staff commit to ten weeks of personal training provided by students of the KINES 432: Conditioning Principles class. Student personal trainers develop and guide clients through an exercise routine designed to help participants meet their health and fitness goals.

Students in the Kinesiology department would like to thank and congratulate all of the finalists of the Fitness Challenge who improved their health and fitness this semester. As a result of the challenge, more than $2,000 was raised for the Department of Kinesiology scholarships.

Finalists and their departments include:

  • Diana Garza, College of Engineering
  • Lynn Lubamersky, History Department
  • Nico Diaz, Advising and Academic Support
  • Scott Jurgens, University Advancement Annual Giving
  • Victoria Hoshino, Financial Aid

Faculty and staff involvement in the Fitness Challenge provides students with a unique hands-on learning opportunity. Most students report that it was one of the most difficult yet significant learning experiences in their time at Boise State.
