Walk This Way
Walking a little can go a long way, just 30 minutes a day can help you burn fat and lose weight. Check out our 1,2 and 3 mile campus walking maps. If the winter weather makes setting a brisk, safe pace a challenge, head to the indoor track at Veale for a mid day walk.
Wellness Program Impact
The CWRU Wellness Program was awarded the 2018 Healthy Workplace Gold Medal, moving up from Silver the past two years. This award recognizes Ohio employers who demonstrate commitment to wellness through comprehensive worksite health promotion and wellness programs.
"Even though this was a virtual exercise program, it was a wonderful way to learn different attractions in the USA. It inspired me to read more, stop and smell the flowers and be more conscience of what’s around me and being appreciated. It turned out to be more than an exercise challenge," one Keep America Active participant shared.
A Be Well Yoga participant said, "I love the way Dawn teaches the practice, making adjustments for those of us with limitations to fully gain all the benefits of the practice."
The CWRU Wellness Program offers a variety of opportunities for participants to earn the Wellness Program Incentive on campus. However, there are off-site opportunities that may meet the criteria as well. These include programs offered through health insurance carriers Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield and Medical Mutual of Ohio, as well as community recreation centers, online classes, and more.
