What is the U-Fit 4.0 Exercise Program?
The U-Fit 4.0 exercise program was constructed to aid competitors by providing them with a weekly workout routine. The program itself was developed to improve several aspects of physical health including: work capacity, heart rate, a range of motion at all major joints, and overall strength. The program will fit any consistent diet plan, whether your goal is to maintain your weight, build muscle or improve fitness. The program will be posted when the challenge is active.
Competitors are highly encouraged to attend an Orientation Session. At these sessions a UREC Personal Trainer will give an overview of the program and what is expected of all competitors to win the prizes. Additionally, trainers will provide various tests that will identify competitors baseline cardiovascular, muscular endurance, and body composition levels. Throughout the program, and again at the end trainers will provide these tests to allow competitors to see their progress. This knowledge can be used on the final essay when discussing how the program effected your wellbeing.
