Join the FlashFit MOVChallenge

Kent State University’s Division of Human Resources and the Department of Recreational Services are excited to present the FlashFit MOVChallenge.

The FlashFit MOVChallenge pits students vs. faculty/staff in a 90-day competition.

The FlashFit MOVChallenge begins Feb. 1 and runs through May 1. Faculty and staff can register for the challenge and obtain their MOVband (if one has not been previously received) by completing all of the required registration steps at Faculty/Staff FlashFit Registration.

Participants in each group who meet the monthly goals, tracked using a MOVband (a wrist-worn monitor), will be eligible for prize drawings at the 30-, 60- and 90-day marks. In addition to the 30-, 60-, and 90-day prize drawings, the grand prize winner for the faculty/staff will win an iPad mini with retina display and a $25 iTunes card. The grand prize FlashFit MOVChallenge winner will be announced at the end of the competition. A travelling "Golden Arm" trophy will also be awarded to the winning group.

As a bonus, faculty and staff who are members of the Student Recreation and Wellness Center who join the MOVChallenge will receive a $50 household credit to be applied towards any fitness and or wellness-related program or service. All other faculty/staff participants will receive five guest passes per person for the Student Recreation and Wellness Center. The passes and credit must be used by May 1.

Faculty and staff from Kent State campuses are encouraged to participate. For complete details and to register, visit the Faculty/Staff FlashFit Registration website
