Blue & You Fitness Challenge Finale


After months of exercising, Arkansas Tech University employees will celebrate the conclusion of the Blue & You Fitness Challenge with a finale event tomorrow.

The event is taking place from 3-4 p.m. in the Doc Bryan Student Services Building Room 242.

Dr. Jerry Mayo will serve as the guest speaker at tomorrow’s event, and he’ll be discussing exercise physiology.  In addition to his lecture, organizers say there will be several door prizes awarded.

Angie Reynolds, director of Human Resources, says the finale event is to reward and congratulate members of the Tech faculty and staff who have worked to stick with an exercise regimen.  She adds, “We all benefit by taking a proactive approach to health, and we are so proud of the Tech faculty and staff who have worked to make their health a priority over the past few months.”

Throughout the program, each participant pledged to exercise for 30 minutes at least three times a week and pledged to track their exercise online.

This was the second year that Arkansas Tech participated in the challenge, and more than 130 Tech faculty and staff signed up to participate.
