National University faculty and staff are invited to get in shape for summer through the NUHS Faculty and Staff Fitness Challenge.

The challenge consists of a pre-assessment, exercise (on one’s own or with the assistance of a clinic intern), a post-assessment, and awards to the winners.

Appointments for a pre-assessment at the clinic should be made for May 21st or May 22nd between 8 -10 am. (Remember, this is a fasting tests, so do not eat from 8-12 hours prior to your scheduled test.  Do drink water, it’s recommended!)

Pre-assessment include a comprehensive bioimpedance test using the Biodynamics BIA 450 Bioimpedence Analyzer.  This painless and quick test uses electrodes that help a special machine calculate body mass (BMI), body composition, as well as intracellular and extracellular water. These important fitness markers give a better profile of starting fitness than the just BMI alone.

Each faculty and staff member in the challenge will also receive a nutritional assessment. This will include a blood draw and, if needed, a recommendation on supplements as part of the NUHS supplement program (for eligible faculty/staff), as well as other dietary counseling.

The post assessment tests, on July 10th and 11th, will feature the exact same tests in order to measure each individual’s personal progress. Certificates will be presented to the winners who most improve in one of several different categories.
