Campus Apartments Launches Beachbody Campus Challenge Nationwide; Makes Healthy Lifestyle Accessible For Employees ...

PHILADELPHIA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

Campus Apartments[1], one of the nations largest privately held providers of student housing, launches Phase II of its inaugural Health and Wellness Challenge and announces a partnership with Beachbody, a market leader in fitness and nutrition with brands including P90X, INSANITY, Brazil Butt Lift, LES MILLS PUMP and Shakeology. The partnership will expand Campus Apartments Health and Wellness Challenge beyond the companys 1,000 employees to include its 32,000 college student residents nationwide.

Phase I started last February, uniting Campus Apartments employees in their weight-loss goals with more than 150 participants shedding a collective total of 511 pounds in 12 weeks. Campus Apartments focus on the health and well-being of its employees was rewarded this year when it achieved a zero percent increase in medical insurance for its 2012-2013 renewal a significant achievement for the company, which had experienced renewal rates of 63 percent two years ago.

Following significant health improvements among its employees in Phase I, Campus Apartments recognized the opportunity to make healthy lifestyles accessible for its residents nationwide. Phase II, launched on September 1, brings the Beachbody Campus Challenge[2] to employees and all Campus Apartments residents nationwide. As a first-time student housing partner, Beachbody provides fitness and nutritional products that work for all types of people; both employees and residents can find fitness regimens that work for their schedule and skill level.

Many of our residents are living away from home for the first time and, as the provider of their home-away-from-home, we felt a responsibility to help them establish and maintain a healthy lifestyle, said David Adelman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Campus Apartments. Practicing healthy eating habits and participating in effective exercise programs is not always accessible and convenient when youre a college student, but by extending Phase II of the wellness challenge to include our residents, Im confident we can help form healthy habits today and set them on a path for wellness beyond their college years.

According to a recent survey cited by USA Today, college students who gained weight say they gained an average of 7.5 to 9 pounds their freshman year and an average 10 to 14 pounds total during their college careers. Furthermore, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently reported that approximately 33 percent of Americans aged 20 to 39 are 30 pounds heavier than their recommended weight.

My freshman 15 was more like the freshman 20, said Carl Daikeler, Chief Executive Officer of Beachbody, LLC. I might have avoided that weight gain if I had these kinds of resources available to me and a peer support structure like Campus Apartments is putting together. This campus challenge format is very effective.

The Beachbody Campus Challenge, running until November 17, aims to encourage college student residents to form groups and achieve results through Beachbodys various fitness programs and nutritional supplements. Based on the national Beachbody Challenge platform, students will have access to critical peer support within their group and 94,000 Beachbody Coaches nationwide. The program provides consumers with an all-inclusive, effective, fitness and nutrition solution that rewards and recognizes goal achievement through cash and prizes.

Healthy Lifestyle

Campus Apartments will host wellness initiatives at its properties in College Station, Texas; Philadelphia, Pa.; and Tucson, Ariz., throughout September and October to highlight Beachbody fitness events and facilitate seasonal vaccinations for employees, residents and members of the local community.

  1. Healthy Lifestyle? I usually go on a medium intensity run for 60 minutes a day, four to five days a week. In addition, I do a total of at least 150 push ups and sit ups in each work out. I don’t consume more than 1500-1600 calories a day. I eat little to no junk food, and take my vitamins. I’m 18, male, and weigh about 164, around 14 to 15 percent body fat. Do I lead a healthy lifestyle? If there are ways to improve, let me know.

      The computer is not a healthy lifestyle for people. It programs us to thinking we can find everything on here. Jobs, pay bills, shop, everything! We can do that ourselves and it seems technology is taking the chores away from us, that can be easily done by human themself. The computer can help us though when we need to find information, imformation fast. Websites help us retain information, advertisements are just like commericals there just trying to sell or maniupulate us to buy whatever their advertising. The computer is not improving our healthy lifestyle. Peoples eyes can go out of sight and hurt very badly(like mine and i’m only 15 years old.) from years and years staring at the computer. The worst thing to stare at is a computer screen — I don’t know why I still do it for hours at end, but I do. The computer will never promote the quality of healthy lifestyle, its just not possible. The computer can convince people to stop drugs and alcohol but if you think about it would you rather have an obsession over the computer for hours at the day, you have to be near the computer you have to be on it then doing drugs or alcohol? The computer is just as bad addiction as alcohol and drugs. The computer cannot HELP us other then give us fast information when we need it. The computer although has so much information and so many untrusted sites you never know if what your reading is a lie. And I hope I get 10 points because I just wasted my time answering this long question, I hope you weren’t just asking this for the heck of this — I hope it was for some essay lol.

      Take care bye
