Student Charles Reimer wins the 360° Kress Challenge

As part of the 360° Brand Celebration last semester, the Kress Events Center provided prizes to those who walked or ran laps and recorded them at the Kress during launch week. Winner of the challenge was Charles Reimer, a junior originally from Marinette, majoring in Business Administration with an emphasis in management.

Reimer is a veteran, who spent 10 years living near Charleston, SC, serving in the Air Force as a C-17 loadmaster (cargo aircraft aircrew). About UW-Green Bay and his 360° experience so far, he had this to say: “UWGB provides a great opportunity for me. It’s less than an hour’s drive to visit family; the campus is small enough to get to know your professors and classmates; it’s within a few miles of the city of Green Bay; and the classes are challenging yet rewarding.”

He said the Kress Center is important to his goals for health and wellness.

“Having the Kress Center as a student is great. I love having the weight room, cardio deck, and classes available free of charge, and the paid services offered to students are inexpensive. Being fit is important because health is a big part of being a well rounded person. I find that, when I put effort into being fit, my stress levels are lower, my confidence is higher and I look better, and I am able to think and concentrate better.”

While finalists received 360° t-shirts and water bottles, Reimer won the grand prize — a training session from personal trainer Jake Kornetzke, a junior from Kiel, majoring in Human Biology with an emphasis in Exercise Sciences.

Marketing intern Tayler Zajac planned, promoted and executed the event.
