Employee Appreciation Day at the Rec Center
On Thursday, October 24, 2013, UNCW employees attended the Employee Wellness Day at the Student Rec Center. The successful event welcomed 114 employees of all fitness levels to come out and visit the state-of-the-art facility to discover ways to begin, or add variety to, their fitness routines. One enthusiastic employee stated, “I’m glad you had this event. I’ve always been too intimidated to come here on my own.”
Facility tours were given to introduce employees to the climbing wall, swimming, cycling, group exercise, strength training, indoor track, racquetball and basketball courts. Tour leaders received wonderful comments about the facility, especially the impressive row of 114 pieces of cardio equipment.
It was really gratifying to see employees of all ages, shapes and fitness levels sign up for their FREE membership applications and register for give-aways and wellness-related raffle prizes. After participating in the event, many employees were inspired to take advantage of what the Rec Center has to offer and make personal pledges to fitness. Employees also enjoyed the opportunity to make connections with others with whom they work, but have never met.
Additionally, the UNCW student nurses were kept busy providing blood pressure and blood glucose screenings. Personal trainers were on hand to provide fitness assessments and to introduce their services. Congratulations to the lucky winners of prizes such as massage, personal training sessions, dietician services, and more!
Many thanks to our event sponsors!
