ROTC Wellness Boot Camp
Registration coming soon
All Fitness Levels Welcome
The Ohio State University ROTC and Buckeye Wellness will host the 3rd annual ROTC Wellness Boot Camp on Wednesday, April 24 from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. in Ohio Stadium, rain or shine. This fun fitness event will demonstrate support of the military through friendly competition. Check back for pictures after the event.
The ROTC has designed six fitness events, each of which will be timed and graded. Participants, consisting of four to six members, will receive points that will be entered by the graders on a specially designed scorecard given to each participant at check in. Participants will be placed in different ranks, based on their preferred physical activity level, where modifications will be provided at each station. All fitness levels welcome.
