Danette Rohr, wife, works in Advancement Services

People think I am crazy, but I do push ups, squats, planks, lunges and all kinds of other things in my cube. I also schedule time to take a walk 3 times a day. I also love the salad bar in our office cafe. Read More

Enrollment Services Coordinator

Professional Admissions

I bring my lunch into work and keep healthy snacks at the ready. Additionally, I have amazing coworkers who I have asked to help keep me accountable to my goals (both the students and the professional staff)! I use Map My Ride app on my phone to record my workouts which is awesome because I can see how much I have accomplished that week/month on a calendar chart they show. Read More

Pat McBeth

Administrative Assistant

Wexner Medical Center Development and Alumni Affairs

I drink lots of water as well as eat 4 to 5 times during the day at work, including a high protein breakfast. I use a Fitbit. It is always nice to see the amount of steps/activity every day! I can't believe how much I walk just during the work day. I do as many activities as possible on the YP4H site. It keeps me accountable to my exercise and dietary focus! Read More

Early Childhood Teaching Assisstant

Nisonger Center

I use the stairs and walk where I need to go. I bring fruit as a snack. I pray for my co-workers, program participants and have a positive outlook. I recommend people challenge themselves and use whatever program works for them. If something isn't working try something else. Regardless of what you do, get outside, stay active and be social.

I find the incentive program fun, rewarding and a positive benefit for trying to live a healthy life. Read More
