Houston Instructions

TWU Fitness and Recreation is partnering with the Health and Wellbeing Initiative (HWI) to create this year's 6-week physical wellness program called TWU Moves. Participants will be able to track their fitness progress and overall wellbeing using the TWU Moves Scorecard available through the Registration Form. 

The program consists of a 2 tier point system where participants will earn points geared towards various prizes. The first tier goal is 20 points (Prize: lunch tote bag). For the second tier, the goal is 40 points (Prize: bento box). 

Participants can earn a maximum of 3 points a day in any combination of the themed areas. To log points, you will track your own progress using the TWU Moves Scorecard. Once completed, scorecards will be turned in by emailing Wellbeing@www.melvinmacias.com. Prizes will be available at the designated campus, and if needed, can be mailed.

Activity options are listed below.
