Shape Up Sandy
Shape Up Sandy is a 10-week program that helps families lead healthier lives. Here's how it works.
Register online and download and print a point card. You earn points for each program activity you complete. Your point card must be validated at each activity to qualify for prizes. You are responsible for keeping your point card.
Weigh-in is optional. Adults may choose to track weight loss. We recommend a gradual and healthy weight loss of 1 pound per week for those who need to lose weight. Check with your healthcare professional about weight loss recommendations.
Join community walks at parks in Sandy. See the back of your points card (or below) for the schedule. Walks are held Mondays, 6-7 pm, from April 1 to June 10 (except Memorial Day, May 27). Each time you complete the 1-mile walk, you'll earn points.
Extra challenges earn more points. Each week we'll e-mail you instructions for walking or hiking challenges, with easy and difficult options. Choose the challenge that's best for you. We encourage you to walk, swim, run and be physically active all week, but only the Monday walks and weekly challenges will count toward program points.
Listen to talks on health topics. Guest speakers will give talks on nutrition, fitness, motivation and staying healthy. Health talks are presented at 6:15 and 6:45 pm each Monday. Attending either of the weekly talks gives you more points.
Earn points toward great prizes! Upon completion of the program, your points will be tabulated and entered into a drawing for fantastic prizes.
Habit Tracker: You can earn points each week for recording your eating and exercising habits. Present your tracker at the walks for validation.
Bring your family along! This is a great opportunity to spend time with family while encouraging exercise. Many trails are stroller and scooter friendly.
