The Northwest Wellness Program offers numerous resources to meet the health and wellness needs of our faculty and staff. The following are a few of the programs available that are designed to encourage and support faculty and staff in living a more active and healthy lifestyle.
Every semester, we offer a friendly competition among faculty and staff to track the number of personal exercise sessions on campus. Our wellness display board is decorated in a fun theme for each semester and faculty and staff log workouts by placing stickers on the board. If you reach the designated goal of 40 stickers by the end of the semester, you win a prize. There are also significant bragging rights for the top male and female winners…we get a bit competitive on the NW campus.
Early Bird Workout Hour
The gym is reserved for faculty and staff only from 7 a.m. – 8 a.m., Monday through Friday. This hour is for faculty and staff to be able to access the facility without the distraction and noise of classes and students.
We host workshops, health fairs, walk/run events, personal health and fitness consultations, goal setting assistance, stress relieving tips and trainings, and much more!

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.
