Fitness Center Introduces New Exercise Programs

If you are looking for fun, exciting ways to work out, look no further than the University Fitness Center’s new group-exercise programs. Ranging from boot camp and kickboxing to hip hop and jazz dance, you can find any exercise you want.

Rhonda Davis, director of Fitness and Wellness, is excited about the number of new exercise programs on campus. “Last year we had about 1,500 people in the Fitness Center each week. With the amount of activities and interest in the new programming, I know we will have more than 2,000 people working out per week,” she added.

For students on campus, the Fitness Center is more than just a way to exercise. “It’s a great way to stay healthy and meet new people on campus,” said sophomore Kelly Eddinger.  “I come here every day to run on the track, and participate in the ‘Absession’ exercise class.”

Need another reason to attend the Fitness Center? “All of our classes and state-of-the-art equipment are available for University faculty, staff and students for free,” Davis added.
