The SRC Calls on Matadors to Commit to Their New Year’s Resolutions with the “New Year New You” Fitness Challenge

January 23, 2018

Northridge — The Student Recreation Center (SRC) at the University Student Union (USU) welcomes all SRC members to start the new semester right with the “New Year New You” fitness challenge. From Monday, Jan. 29 to Sunday, Mar. 25, this eight-week fitness challenge will encourage SRC members to make a commitment towards their physical health. The challenge is comprised of exercise, recreation and nutrition activities with three specific fitness goals to achieve. All participants who successfully complete all three goals will receive a commemorative “New Year New You” t-shirt and be entered into a raffle to win a $50 Visa gift card.

“In past years, ‘New Year New You’ has been very successful in motivating Matadors to stick to their resolutions,” said Amanda Christianson, SRC Fitness Coordinator. “We are thrilled to bring this great fitness opportunity back to the CSUN community and offer fun incentives for participants.”

The three challenge goals to meet are Cardio Endurance, Muscular Strength/Endurance & Power, and Restorative. In order to meet a goal, a minimum of eight eligible workout activities must be submitted towards that same goal during the program period. Participants will need to engage in various fitness activities to accomplish each goal, such as running on the indoor track, which counts towards the Cardio Endurance goal, or attending a yoga class at the Oasis Wellness Center, which counts toward the Restorative goal. The complete list of eligible activities is on the SRC website at

SRC members can register for “New Year New You” from today until Sunday, March 25 through the SRC Challenges Portal. Participants will also need to log their fitness activities on the SRC Challenge Portal by 11:59 p.m. the same day they complete them throughout the event.

Make good on your fitness resolutions with the “New Year New You” fitness challenge! For more information, please visit or contact SRC Fitness Coordinator, Amanda Christianson at
