Through health education and the wellness activities offered by TU Wellness, our colleagues will be enabled to maintain healthy lifestyles which will result in improved employee engagement, increased productivity, and smarter utilization of available employee benefits.
Zumba and Yoga classes are offered weekly on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays at various locations. Please see below for more information.
During the month of March, we asked employees to be part of the Fitts Bit Challenge 2019. This challenge encouraged all to become healthier by being mobile and active. Participants tracked their walking steps daily via several devices such as a Fitbits, Apple watches, Garmin trackers, smartphones, and even simple pedometers.
For 2019, we are happy to congratulate our top three winners:
Anthony walked well over a 1 million steps! His total came out to be equivalent to 521 miles. Brittany Kennedy walked over 700,000 (352 miles) and Jake Korn walked 564,000 steps (252 miles). Congratulation to our top three walkers for winning the challenge and achieving this wellness milestone.
In all, 142 Tulane employees participated in this challenge, we congratulate all of them for deciding to make March a wellness and active month.
