Shape-Up TCC-NE (PDF will open in a new window) is a wellness initiative sponsored by Health Services and HPE.
Employees at Northeast Campus will be allowed to have a 30-minute wellness break each day during the school year with supervisor approval and proper documentation. The TCC Northeast Campus Wellness Brochure and Recreation Schedule (PDFs will open in a new window) highlight classes and activities available for employee participation.
(All forms below are PDF and will open in a new window.)
Employees can participate in a variety of workouts or shape-up activities:
The Wellness Program is designed to promote a healthy lifestyle for TCC South Campus and MOC administration, faculty and staff. The emphasis is on the individual's physical fitness level and the promotion of good health habits.
Participants have an initial consultation with Mr. Tim Johnson to set up a personal profile. They are then tested on blood pressure, aerobic capacity / sub-max VO2 test, flexibility, strength, body composition, and resting heart rate. Their results are compared with norms for their age/gender category, and then based on these results, short-term and long-term goals are set up.
Mr. Johnson designs an exercise program to reach these goals without putting the employee at a high risk for injury. Mr. Johnson will work with an individual until he or she is comfortable with his or her program. Participants will be re-tested when short-term goals are reached, and then their programs will be adjusted to reach long-term goals.
Mr. Johnson has a master's degree in exercise physiology and has worked in two university exercise physiology labs doing extensive testing. He has worked as an exercise physiologist, assisting corporate executives and professional athletes in setting up workout programs. He has implemented wellness programs at two other colleges and for several corporations. Mr. Johnson is a professional speaker at conferences on setting up wellness programs.
Participate in classes or work out on your own in the gym, weight room, cardio room or swimming pool.

"Numerous studies have shown that being physically active improves an employee's quality of work, time-management abilities, and reduces sick days. Not to mention this could be a morale boost and a great opportunity to lose pounds!"--Northeast Campus President Larry Darlage
