Get moving and help FIU win fitness challenge

May 22, 2020 at 12:10pm

Need a little motivation to get your fitness-on? Pause Netflix and get ready!

FIU’s Wellness and Recreation Center has joined the 2020 Recreation Movement—an online initiative encouraging participants to keep moving through daily fitness challenges and workout classes. What’s more, colleges compete with one another over the most active participants.

“We decided to join the 2020 Recreation Movement to further expand the options given to our students, faculty, staff and alumni,” says Leoncio J. Alvarez, assistant director of Marketing and Membership at the Wellness and Recreation Center at MMC.

The collaboration between NIRSA (leaders in collegiate recreation), TikTok and multiple colleges and universities offers opportunities for self-care and community building while having fun. 

Access to fitness classes from colleges/universities

FIU students, faculty and staff now have access to virtual fitness programs from more than 60 different colleges and universities across the country. The 2020 Recreation Movement is free. All you need to sign up is an FIU email address.

You can do live workouts which are streamed using various online platforms or watch recorded sessions. Classes include yoga, stay at home cardio, HIIT and strength training. In addition to the plethora of classes available, you can partake in daily challenges and post on TikTok.

“We hope the FIU community takes advantage of this amazing movement, and maybe try a class you've never tried before,” Alvarez says.  

How it works

Create a profile on with your .edu email address.

After each class, log your total number of active minutes.

Watch FIU’s total minutes stack up against other participating schools.

It’s that easy. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get moving! Take a class, complete a daily challenge, and show everyone how you #RecAtHome on TikTok.

The 2020 Recreation Movement will take place until the last week of the Summer semester. At that point, the winning university will be announced.
