New! With so much uncertainty going on around us it is easy to become overwhelmed and need some extra guidance in our lives right now. With the SRC and all other gyms closed at this time we have to get creative in finding ways to be active and get some exercise as an outlet for our stress and maintaining our fitness. This is where the SRC Fitness Staff can help. Beginning Monday, April 6th we will be offering Virtual Fitness Consultations Monday through Friday from 10 AM – 3 PM. These 1-on-1 sessions will take about 15 minutes and would offer tips/ ideas of how to incorporate exercise into your day with what you have in your home. To schedule an appointment simply click here to email Debby Woodall and we'll set up your date and time.
New! As things continue to evolve and change from day to day so has our medium for bringing you opportunities to stay active/ fit while working and studying from home. Beginning Friday our instructors will be moving from Live online classes being recorded inside the SRC to recording ‘Workouts of the Day’ from home and uploading them onto our Instagram (@ulsrc) and Twitter (@IMFit_UL & @ULSRC) accounts. These will be 1-2 minute videos that will have demonstrations of the exercises and instruction on how many sets and reps to complete for the workout. We will be uploading 1-2 workouts per day until it is safe for our Instructors to return to the SRC for live class instruction.
