R UIndy Fit? Update:
                                   R UIndy Fit is a 12-week faculty/staff pedometer program designed to get
                                   the UIndy campus moving to improve their overall health, and was devel-
                                   oped and run by the Department of Kinesiology. The overall goal is to
                                   achieve 10,000 steps in a day (10KaDay) or to achieve a 10% improvement in
                                   number of steps each week. This goal of 10KaDay or a 10% improvement in
weekly steps is recommended to manage weight, to increase fitness levels, and to assist in reducing health-
related risk factors (e.g., heart disease, stroke, certain cancers, diabetes, obesity). This year, 186 faculty/staff
members, plus spouses and significant others, participated on teams. At the end of the 12 weeks, a record 80
participants achieved their goal of 10KaDay or 10% improvement every week of the program. Teams also
competed against each other for percentage of their team members who achieved their weekly goals for
prizes, private healthy cooking demonstrations and lunches with UIndy’s Executive Chef Dan Phillips, and
overall bragging rights. A creative team photo contest was also held for prizes.
