LIFEFIT CENTER IS NOW AN EXERCISE IS MEDICINE FACILITY

eim

The LifeFit Center is now proud to say that it is officially an Exercise is Medicine on Campus facility.

We at the LifeFit Center are making a commitment to uphold and promote these guiding principles of the Exercise is Medicine on Campus (EIMC) Program.

• Exercise and physical activity are important to health and the prevention and treatment of many chronic diseases.

• More should be done in university and college settings to encourage students to establish lifelong exercise and physical activity habits that have the power to significantly improve the quality of students’ lives.

• Support the American College of Sports Medicine’s (ACSM’s) efforts to bring a greater focus on exercise and physical activity in university and college settings.

 

 

 

Greetings LifeFit Center @ The Beach!!! August is Outdoor Activities Month!

We encourage you to head outdoors and enjoy some of your exercise activities in nature!

Always remember to keep safety in mind when exercising outdoors.

  • Wear comfortable, well-fitting shoes.
  • Avoid outdoor activities in extreme temperatures.
  • Drink plenty of fluids [before, during, and after exercise] to stay well hydrated.
  • Listen to your body when determining an appropriate exercise intensity.
  • Wear sunscreen or protective clothing (hat, sunglasses, etc.).

We host a Walking Group every Thursday at 12 pm (meet at the Service Desk). The Walking Group goes for a 30-45 minute walk around campus. Please join us for some outdoor activity!

Move More, Live Longer!
