The Whole U’s launch event is not only big, it is a record-breaking, history-making way to spend your lunchtime on Friday, January 24. This event was advertised in the December issue of The Resource, UWHR’s monthly e-newsletter, and quickly filled to capacity! We are thrilled to have over 1,000 faculty and staff signed up to help set the Guinness World Record for world’s largest kettlebell workout. There are still other ways to participate:

On the Seattle campus, we have room for spectators and would love for you to come out to cheer on your colleagues. Register now! You can also add your name to be waitlisted as a kettlebeller.

Spectators will receive:

  • Free t-shirt
  • Free snacks to grab on your way out

UW Video is providing a live webcast to Bothell and Tacoma and we have 100 spots available on each campus for kettlebellers. Spots fill up fast, so reserve your spot now!

Register for the Bothell Kettlebell Event.

Register for the Tacoma Kettlebell Event.

Kettlebellers will receive:

  • Free kettlebell to keep—useful for future Whole U events!
  • Free Dri-FIT t-shirt donated by Nike to commemorate breaking the record
  • Free Whole U tote bag
  • Free snacks for recharging as you triumphantly complete the workout

    Hi Peter,

    I’m so sorry we didn’t see this comment earlier! Did you find the webcast? There was a button for it in our only post today (“See UW Faculty & Staff Make History).
