For full-time staff/faculty and spouses on an IU-sponsored medical plan

Program Duration:
Attend mandatory orientation (Fall 2017 TBD), then meet with your student coach for 8 sessions. Date/time/location of sessions is your choice.

Work with a student coach who can help you:

  • Set movement goals.
  • Learn to utilize campus wellness resources.
  • Get to know your activity style.
  • Log movement using an activity tracker (Fitbit Flex provided by Healthy IU. *See note below.)
  • Receive instruction on work place movements at your desk.

The goal is help you become informed with what you can do to get more movement in during your day.

Student coaches work with participants for 30 minutes, once per week for 8 sessions and give instructions on activity tracker use. Meeting times are arranged with your student coaches. Student grade is dependent on employee engagement. Please ensure you can meet with your student coach 8 times throughout the program.

Brought to you by School of Public Health/Department of Kinesiology graduate and undergraduate students.

Those who are eligible may receive only 1 activity tracker through programs funded by Healthy IU.
