Happy Healthy Days Are Back
Nov. 17–26, the Cabrini community is invited to register for Happy Healthy Days through the Dixon Center.
Happy Healthy Days is a health-incentive program built around your specific goals during the holiday season.
Set a goal for yourself! Your goal must be something that the Fitness Center staff can measure. For example, many people don’t want to gain weight over the holidays, so their goal would be to maintain or lose weight.
After you set your goal, stop by the Fitness Center between to sign up. Please allow a few minutes for the staff to discuss your goal with you and take any measurements necessary.
After the holidays, the fitness staff will contact you to come back to the fitness center and see if you achieved your goal.
All participants that achieve their goal will receive a Happy Healthy Days T-shirt.
Sponsored by Cabrini Recreation, this program is free to all students, faculty, staff, and Dixon Center members.
For more information, please contact Jess Huda (610‑902‑8318 or firstname.lastname@example.org) or visit www.cabrinirec.com.
