  • Click the orange "search for company" link and type in St. Norbert College - this will enter each individual as a participant for our College.
  • Under the "Health Info" heading:
    The College, Health & Wellness program administrators nor any other participants will NOT see this information.
    It is used by the Tracker to help calculate and translate your non-walking/running activities into "Total Steps".
  • Under the "Preferences" heading
    If checked, the Health & Wellness program administrators will be able to see your name, department, email address, and physical activities.
    However, no one will see your health information (i.e. weight or height).
  • Registration is ongoing throughout the program.

What is our goal?
Our goal is to follow the American Heart Association's physical activity recommedation. You can use this as your goal or our program allows you to set your own daily activity goal.  

Any equipment needed?
You will only need to keep track of your time spent on activities, although you may also use a pedometer. The AHA's Activity Tracker has the capibility of tracking 27 activities from aerobics through to yoga. You will select the activity, the intensity of the activity and enter the number of minutes of the activity - press enter and you will see the total steps accomplished during that activity - very simple and fun!

There is no cost--it is free.
