The Florida Trek is an exercise incentive and tracking program designed specifically for Alachua County employees. The 2012 Florida Trek begins June 4, 2012. Starting September 3, 2012 you can earn BlueRewards points by participating in the Florida Trek program. You can earn 10 points per month between September 3, 2012 and July 31, 2013.
To participate in the trek program all you have to do is exercise, keep track of your time on the trek log sheet and submit it by email either on a weekly or monthly basis. Activities suitable for trek mileage include such things as walking, running, cycling, spinning, tennis, basketball, soccer, swimming, water aerobics, yoga, rowing, Zumba, weight training and aerobics classes.
Activities of daily living (gardening, housecleaning, car washing, incidental walking at home or at work etc.) are not Florida trek activities.
For those who have participated in the trek program in the past the 2012 Trek is a little bit different. Instead of calculating mileage you will be keeping track by time and entering it on your log sheet.
You can earn 10 BlueRewards points each month by exercising for at least 30 minutes a day at least 3 times per week. You will receive a new log sheet each month, please be sure to use the supplied monthly log sheet.
If there are 4 weeks on the log sheet you will need to exercise at least 30 minutes a day, at least 3 times per week for at least 3 of the 4 weeks, if the period includes 5 weeks you must meet the requirements for 4 of the 5 weeks. And finally to earn points you must submit your log sheet by the 5th of the following month. If your logsheet is received after the 5th you will not earn BlueRewards points.
You can still participate in the Florida Trek program and not participate or earn points for the BlueRewards program, but to earn points you must meet the minimum requirements of the program.
The monthly trek log to use will be posted on the trek website.
