The Mission: To get Wyvern Nation to move, exercise, and have fun through different styles of workouts with little or no equipment needed

List of 6 frequently asked questions.

  • What is the Wyvern Fit Challenge?

    A friendly competition among eight different teams. The challenge takes a team approach to building healthier lifestyles within our KO community. The participants on each team strive to be more physically active within their own comfort zone and keep track of each day’s workout. Each team will be led by a member of our athletic department.
  • How do I log workouts and earn points for my team?

    Take a walk, go for a run, play hoops, yoga it up, choose a workout from the various choices that will be offered in the “Library of Workouts” given by your team coach. The choice is yours. Whatever you choose, the goal is to get outside, workout and move!
    • Maximum points that you can receive for your individual workouts each week is 25 points (one workout = five points)- we are encouraging two recovery days in the week, therefore if you choose to do more, you still only receive credit for five workouts
    • Post a video or pic of yourself enjoying your workout on your team site will earn you an additional 10 points. Wear your KO gear with pride for ‘brownie’ points. 20 points max per week given. (Only two video submissions per week count towards your point total)
    • Nutrition: Post the name of the dish, a list of ingredients and instructions to make it, along with a picture of yourself (or with your family!) with the finished product and earn 10 points! (Only one recipe submissions per week count towards your point total)
    • Nutrition Recipes: Use a recipe a teammate posted, then take a pic of yourself with the finished product and earn an additional five points for you and the team! (Only one classmate recipes per week count towards your point total)
  • Important to Note

    If you don’t like any of the workouts listed and you have your own workout you like to do, that is fine as well! The workouts listed are for guidance but are not meant to be restrictive. The goal is to get outside, workout and move! Whatever you do, log it with your team leader and get credit for your team.
