Lab assessments start April 7, 2014 and end April 18, 2014 

Open to all Eastern Illinois University employees, EIU Scale It Down, is a ten-week program to help you increase awareness in your physical needs, increase health, and promote a healthier lifestyle. After registering for EIU Scale It Down, you must contact the Kinesiology and Sports Studies ATP (Assessment, Training and Prescription) lab, 581-7109, to schedule a one hour appointment between April 7,2014 and April 18, 2014.

During the one hour assessment, you will engage in various activities to measure strength and endurance. After the assessment is complete you will know your starting point and exactly what areas you wish to improve. The challenge officially begins April 21, 2014. 

We will offer various activities and provide healthy recipes to assist you in reaching your goals. This is the second time that this program is being offered and we look forward to you reaching your goals and becoming the healthiest and happiest person that you can be. Keep track of your progress with this weekly log provided here.

This year we have introduced a point system to give participants more of an incentive to Scale it Down. Participants who wish to participate in an incentive program within Scale It Down will receive points for attending different Scale it Down events, daily walks and also for completing recommended amounts of daily/weekly exercise. More detail will be announced closer to April 21.

At the end of the program there will be a “check out” assessment to determine the progress that you have made. The final assessments will take place from June 23, 2014 until July 3, 2014. We look forward to your success but always remember that success is not a race, be patient. Your goals are all attainable in time.

Good luck!
