How it Works

The SharkFIT Active Program is a complimentary fitness incentive program available to all members of the Fitness and Wellness centers. The training program is designed by fitness coaches and trainers. The program includes pre-assessment, post-assessment, and 8 weeks of exercise prescriptions tailored for weight-loss or muscle-gain performance goals. Individuals that complete the program are recognized during the once-a-year SharkFit Active Awards Ceremony. This cross-training incentive program rewards participants with a number of points after completion of the exercise session. Top winners are announced on a weekly basis and at the conclusion of the competition.

In addition to proper nutrition and effective stress relief, exercise is a major component of a healthy lifestyle. Regular, consistent workouts offer health benefits, including a firmer, trimmer appearance, assistance in weight loss, tension-relief, and increased cardiovascular endurance and stamina.

How to Sign Up

The SharkFit program is offered twice during the school year, during the second week of every fall and spring semester. You can sign up at the Fitness and Wellness counter with your valid, current gym membership.
