Share Your Experiences: What Moves You?
"I'm new to Boston College and my experience has been amazing. I discover new things around campus everyday. In tow and one step behind of course is my rescue dog, Miss Bells, dressed in a BC sweater! During COVID, I started packing on the pounds, like many people, and the winter months have made it difficult to do long walks, so I turned to my traveling weighted hula hoop. Hula hooping builds stamina, burns calories, and is an excellent form of cardio! I hope this video (can be seen on the go move challenge facebook page) will inspire everyone to register and get moving for the #GoMoveChallenge!"
Celebrating my third year participating in the Go Move Challenge at SCU. The challenge is one of my most anticipated activities of the year. It's the perfect way to shake off the after holiday blues and re-energize for a new year. I achieve my daily minute goals by walking three times a day, morning and evening PT exercises, lifting heavy weights, and riding gravel roads on the weekends.
Francisco De Jesus: Saint Peter's University
"I have participated in the Go Move Challenge for the past 2 years. I participate in it to stay active and help get healthy. A positive outcome for me is that it allows me to accurately account for my movements and to see how many calories I burn daily with active exercising."
Anneliese Mauch: University of San Francisco
I like going for a walk every morning before the start of the day. My favorite walk is from my house to the top of Buena Vista Park, which affords me great views of the city (including St. Ignatius and the USF campus) as well as 40 flights of stairs and 9,000 steps (according to my Apple Watch). I enjoy taking photos of beautiful plants and flowers along the way.
Tami Whitney: Creighton University
Due to the snow and cold, Tami gets her minutes by walking at the gym.
Janice Hayes DeMonsi: Santa Clara University
Janice earns her minutes in a variety of ways, including early morning runs and walks where she is inspired by beautiful sites like birds, lighthouses and the ocean! Janice does weights (and heavy ones!), barre classes and paddle boarding. She is also very active on our Go Move Challenge facebook page. Thank you Janice for all your posts! It's fun to see the variety of ways you're active.
