Fit 5

The Fit 5 program is based on the three simple goals of exercising 5 days per week, eating 5 total fruits and vegetables per day, and drinking 5 water bottles of water per day. The Fit 5 manual is a great reference for coaches, athletes, and wellness coordinators leading Fit 5 programs this summer, and includes timeline, implementation, data collection, and resources.

Lifestyle Survey

Participants in both the Fitness Heptathlon and Fit 5 will be required to complete the Lifestyle Survey at the beginning and end of your program. The survey will ask you questions about the things that you do to be healthy.
