FCBE Launches Fogelman Fit

For release: October 1, 2010

The Fogelman College of Business & Economics has unveiled a new program to try to improve the general health of its students. The program was launched on September 22, during the FCBE Open House in the lobby of the Fogelman Classroom Building, and included fitness demos, nutrition displays, challenge sign-ups, and giveaways. Students who registered for the program also received a free t-shirt.

Fogelman Fit is a coordinated effort to enhance student health and wellness, and is supported by the FCBE, the Department of Health and Sport Sciences, and other campus and professional organizations.  The initiative will promote healthy eating and physical activity with an emphasis on small steps toward better health.

Beginning with the Spring Semester 2012, Fogelman Fit will increase its offering of ongoing wellness activities and challenges with the addition of a fitness center on the 2nd floor of the college (Room 260). A certified physical fitness trainer will conduct one hour classes beginning January 23rd on a Monday & Thursday schedule for 20 weeks during  the semester. Students can commit for a specific number of hours or, if desired, all 20 sessions. Additionally, for each completed hour, a dollar amount ranging from $4.00 to $7.00 per hour (depending on the number of hours committed), will be donated to the Memphis Food Bank.  For more information please email gshall@memphis.edu  or contact the certified physical fitness trainer, J. Gick, at 901-451-0921.
