  • Workouts must be completed at the TCNJ Fitness Center. Submissions from other gyms are not permitted.
  • Workouts will be tracked by the fitness center staff. To submit a workout, take a picture of the equipment display and show this image to a worker at the front desk. The image must show how much distance was completed.
  • More than one submission is allowed per day.
  • Cycling can be done on any cycling device (i.e. recumbent bike, upright bike, or interactive bike).
  • Elliptical training can be used to fulfill treadmill distance requirements if the participant has a condition/circumstances that limit high impact exercise.
