Tired of making New Years resolutions that are so hard to keep? Well the Mocs student body is in for a big treat this semester at the Wellness Center.
With spring semester already in the full swing of things, so many students are quickly feeling the pressure of getting rid of that holiday weight and are looking into all of the opportunities that the Nina B. Hollis Wellness Center has to offer.
Along with the Aquatic and Outdoor Recreational programs and exercise room with which most students are already familiar, the Wellness Center will consist of the same group exercise classes as last semester which includes TurboKick, Ab Attack, Yoga, Zumba, Cycling and more. But this upcoming semester the group exercise class list will also feature a brand new workout called GET FIT. This will be taught by sophomore Libby Erdelac and will be offered as a level one and level two class.
GET FIT Level One is a great class for students who are beginners or those who want to get back into the gym, but don’t want to be too overwhelmed. It encompasses many different kinds of movements to help students develop and keep a healthy lifestyle. This class is offered only on Thursdays from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m.
GET FIT Level Two is designed for those who like a challenge and those who feel they need a tougher workout than the level one class. This class aims to target different kinds of muscle groups and to test the workout regimen you’ve already put in place for yourself. The level two class is offered on Fridays from 4:30 to 5:15 p.m.
In addition to these new classes, the Wellness Center will participate in what is known as NIRSA day on Monday, Feb. 22. The day celebrates the National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association and will feature activities such as a three point shoot out, free throw contest, rock-paper-scissors tournament, fitness assessments, group exercises classes as well as free food.
The event will also give away free T-shirts to those who participate.
The list of group exercise classes and times are posted in the Wellness Center and as always you can schedule a session with a personal trainer to help you get on track, get into shape and stick to those New Year’s resolutions.
