Northridge — The Student Recreation Center (SRC) of the University Student Union (USU) wants to welcome back all Matadors to the new year with its new springtime program, “Friends & Fitness”. From Monday, Feb. 10 to Friday, March 6, students can team up with a partner and then go head-to-head with other Matadors to earn points for completing eligible fitness activities and a chance to win awesome prizes along the way!

“The SRC wants to help students kick off their year the right way with an exciting new program,” said Amanda Christianson, SRC Fitness Programs Coordinator. “‘Friends & Fitness’ offers Matadors the opportunity to win cool prizes while you’re paired up with a friend to achieve your fitness New Year’s resolutions.”

This three-week program challenges students to compete with other teams in a series of fitness activities in order to level up within the program and win points to get prizes. Participants can choose from three fitness categories and earn 1 point for non-bonus activities and 2 points for bonus activities!

Teams can earn bonus points for submitting pictures of their team completing partner activities such as attending any group exercise class, climbing the Rock Wall, participating in the open recreation sports and the Boxing Training Program. On Friday, March 6 at 12 p.m., the top 12 teams with the most points will be invited to compete in the Team Finale for a chance to claim the top prize!
