Freshman Fit Team - Find your fit fam at ODU!

Freshman Fit Team 


Freshman Fit Team (a Monarch Experience Program) is an opportunity to meet other first year students looking to improve and develop healthy lifestyles. Throughout the semester you will have the opportunity to increase your fitness and wellness by participating in customized workouts, learning about healthy eating on campus, and learning wellness strategies for a balanced life. 


Each Fit Team is led by a coach who will guide you through your journey and provide you with motivation. However, putting in the work is up to you! Throughout the semester you will need to complete one challenge for each of the nine dimensions of wellness and one physical challenge each week. 

Fit Team members are required to attend 5 of the 10 scheduled team meetings, participate in one group fitness class a week, or meet with a personal trainer. Those who complete their work by November 30 will receive a FREE t-shirt, ODU prize pack, and a grand prize!
