Sign up for the Fitstyle Walking & Motivation Program for Yale Faculty & Staff

Fitstyle Walking Tours are back!

Explore Yale and downtown New Haven and find time for exercise with these brisk walks led by Shana Schneider, a Yale alumna, New Haven resident and certified group fitness instructor. 

She’ll take you along new routes and share some fun facts along the way. She’ll keep the pace to about a 20-minute mile and cover about 2-miles.  Space is limited and registration is required.

Sometimes we need a little help from our friends…that’s where the fitstyle personalized messages come in!

  • Does this program cost anything?
    Nope. But your data rates may apply for receiving text messages.

  • Who is this program for?

    It’s open to all Yale faculty and staff members.

  • Why isn’t my form being submitted?

    In order to provide space for more people to register and walk, you can only sign up for one walk at a time. Once the walk date you have registered for passes, you can sign up for another walk!

  • Why don’t I see some of the walk dates listed on the registration form?
    If registration is full for the walk, it will not show up on the registration form. If you REALLY want to try to get in on a date that isn’t available, send an email to hello at fitstylebyshana dot com with the date you want and ask to be added to the wait list.

  • Do walks ever get rescheduled?
    Yes, walks may get rescheduled due to inclement weather or if there are less than 6 people registered 24-hours prior to the walk date.

  • Can I respond to the text messages that are sent?

    Yep, if you have a question about a message respond back and we can try to help!

  • How can I contact the organizer with other questions?
    Feel free to send questions to hello at fitstylebyshana dot com.
