About The Program
Welcome to The Clark Sports Center's COMMIT TO BE FIT program! This program is designed to help members lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle.
COMMIT TO BE FIT has an easy to follow points system that will credit members for not just weight loss, but for activity and education toward long term healthy living. The more points you earn, the better chance you have of earning a larger membership credit at the end. The participant with the highest total points will be awarded the grand prize, a One Year Adult Membership.
This program is a commitment to yourself to live a healthy life. When you sign up you will be given a Passport to Fitness. The Passport contains program information and weekly logs to keep track of what you eat and the activities you participate in. You will also receive weekly handouts to be added such as recipes, suggested exercises and challenges to earn point bonuses.
There is a $10 registration fee. If you complete the program with a minimum of 50 points, the $10 will be credited to your membership along with any rewards for the points you have accumulated. A better way for fitness is a commitment to be fit. Challenge your limits!

Guidelines • Phase 1
- Must be a member and 18 or older to participate.
- The program registration fee is $10.
- Activity must be recorded in your Passport to Fitness to earn points.
- Points are a numerical value that reports how much activity has taken place. They are earned through activity completed, activity challenges, and weight loss. There will be additional opportunities to earn points throughout the program featured on our website and at the Fitness Center.
- On-campus Points can only be earned during operating hours.
- At the end of our first period (January–March), membership credits will be rewarded to participants in descending order from the most points earned to the least. The more points an individual has, the better the chance they have of earning a higher membership credit.
- On-site staff must stamp and initial your Passport to Fitness after each activity has taken place in order to verify points were earned. Off campus activity must be recordable (ie Race Bib).
- Passports must be checked in bi-weekly. If you fail to check in your passport, you will not receive the points you earned.
- Each participant is allowed one "mulligan," in which points will be added to a week missed (i.e. away on vacation). The amount of points for a mulligan will be equal to the point total from your previous week.
- There will be seminars and classes offered throughout the program. They will be free to COMMIT TO BE FIT participants.
- If participants earn a minimum of 50 points, they will receive a membership credit of at least $10 at the end of the program.
- If a Passport is lost, a new one may be reissued.
