FCBE Launches Fogelman Fit
For release: October 1, 2010
The Fogelman College of Business & Economics has unveiled a new program to try to
improve the general health of its students. The program was launched on September
22, during the FCBE Open House in the lobby of the Fogelman Classroom Building, and
included fitness demos, nutrition displays, challenge sign-ups, and giveaways. Students
who registered for the program also received a free t-shirt.
Fogelman Fit is a coordinated effort to enhance student health and wellness, and is
supported by the FCBE, the Department of Health and Sport Sciences, and other campus
and professional organizations. The initiative will promote healthy eating and physical
activity with an emphasis on small steps toward better health.
Beginning with the Spring Semester 2012, Fogelman Fit will increase its offering of
ongoing wellness activities and challenges with the addition of a fitness center on
the 2nd floor of the college (Room 260). A certified physical fitness trainer will
conduct one hour classes beginning January 23rd on a Monday & Thursday schedule for
20 weeks during the semester. Students can commit for a specific number of hours
or, if desired, all 20 sessions. Additionally, for each completed hour, a dollar amount
ranging from $4.00 to $7.00 per hour (depending on the number of hours committed),
will be donated to the Memphis Food Bank. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the certified physical fitness trainer, J. Gick, at 901-451-0921.
