"Wellness must be a prerequisite to all else." Ernest Boyer
As God’s creation, we recognize that wholeness in life encompasses
well-being of body, mind, and spirit. The wellness program
at Messiah College exists primarily to promote wellness
education and provide opportunities for active
wellness participation, with the goal of
improving the health and well-being
of Messiah employees.
Upcoming Wellness Workshop

Exercise to Brazil
Recording your workouts is one of the best ways to become more consistent with your exercise. Now you can do it, and also qualify for free weekly prize-drawings. The program is called “Exercising to Brazil” in honor of this summer’s Olympics. Registering for the program is simple and it only takes seconds to record your activity each day. All participants will receive a pedometer to record steps, but those who prefer recording their minutes of exercise instead of wearing a pedometer, can also participate. The online tracker will automatically convert minutes of exercise to steps.
The program starts on Feb. 14 and runs for 8 weeks. Registration instructions can be found on the wellness website. Every 2000 steps will equal a mile, and Brazil is 4680 miles from Grantham. How close can we get to Brazil by the end of the semester?
