Will you accept the challenge? The 2016 Get Fit Texas State Agency Challenge that is! This event provides an opportunity for state employees to get active for an agency-to-agency competition. By accepting the challenge, state employees take on being physically active for 150 minutes per week for at least six of the 10 weeks of the Challenge.
In the spirit of friendly competition, the Statewide Wellness Coordinator at the Department of State Health Services will track the completion percentage for each state agency and recognize the agencies in each size category (small, mid-size and large) with the highest completion percentage as the Fittest State Agency in Texas! Trophies and bragging rights will follow!
Beginning January 17, 2016 and continuing through March 26, 2016, participants can log their physical activity time and track their progress on the Get Fit Texas online physical activity tracker at www.GetFitTexas.orgEmployees can register for the Get Fit Texas State Agency Challenge between January 5 and January 31, 2016, although the challenge doesn’t actually start until the 17th.
