At Highlands College, we believe in creating leaders who are mentally, spiritually, and physically strong.
HC Fit is a cornerstone program designed to help form a student’s holistic character by giving them the tools they need to pursue a healthy, active lifestyle while also using sports to grow in their leadership abilities.
Each semester, students join an intramural team of their choice, ranging from kickball to Ultimate Frisbee. This experience helps students develop Christ-like character through time spent with fellow students.
Along with Intramural Sports, students participate in weekly fitness classes led by certified fitness trainers from our private partner, Lifetime Fitness. Lifetime Fitness is an exceptional athletic training facility which is just minutes away from campus.
Students join together every spring to train for and complete the Highland College 10K (Evening students) and Half Marathon (Traditional students). These events stretch students physically, spiritually, and emotionally teaching reliance on God and their communities for support.
Expedition is a challenge where students work as teams to race through physically challenging obstacles. It’s an unforgettable experience held on one day every fall, rain or shine. support.
"HC Fit has taught me how not just to face my walls, but break through them. Through Expedition, intramurals, and even prepping for the half marathon, I learned that character develops in the days that you feel like giving up and decide not to. I’ve learned that if we don’t quit, we win!"
"HC fit has taught me that it’s essential to challenge yourself. When you push yourself and challenge yourself, you discover that you can do anything you set your mind to through discipline, perseverance, and accountability!"
HC Fit has been one of the best parts of my Highlands College experience! Through events like Expedition, workout groups, and now the half-marathon prep, I have learned the importance of building relationships. I have people who hold me accountable to go to the gym, follow my running plan, and making sure I stay disciplined in my commitment to health and wellness. Through HC Fit, I have become more self-disciplined and equipped to live out Luke 2:52, “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature and favor with God and man.”
"HC Fit has helped me develop meaningful relationships with my peers. For Expedition, I competed with a team of people who were mostly strangers. Very quickly I realized I had to depend on these people to get through the event. Expedition taught me the importance of teamwork and how to settle differences to accomplish a common goal."
Each Traditional Student participates in the HC meal plan, Mealfit. Mealfit consists of a balanced, nutritious lunch that includes a variety of proteins and fresh vegetables.
Mealfit can accommodate any dietary restrictions.
