Fitness Program 

Campus Recreation has created a program to help anyone get a jump on exercise with fun classes. Included is yoga, cycling, full-body workouts, and much more. The unlimited classes pass can be purchased online for around $40. The classes are great for anyone who is looking for some instruction in fitness or some group encouragement.

Another option is a personal fitness program or small group training. For an extra fee, students can receive individual help at the gym.  

 

Any student has access to all of these resources. Make sure to take advantage and find a way to relieve stress through exercise.
