As the New Year rolls around, many people are fulfilling their resolutions to get healthy. What many people don’t know is that there are all kinds of fun and unique ways to stay active through CRI. This spring is filled with programs and activities such as Fitness’ Boot(y) Camp, Aquatics’ Inner Tube Water Polo, Southern Adventures’ Climbing Wall, Wellness Week, and the Club Sports Fair.
Boot(y) Camp is a dance based fitness class for females that meets on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 7:00-8:30. Most of the class consists of Flirty Girl but some sessions will have guest teachers for African Dance, Irish Dance, etc. Meeting in the Mind and Body studio, the class lasts from January 24-March 8. You can register online for $10 per person.
Inner Tube Water Polo is exactly what it sounds like! But for those still a little confused, the object of the game is to score on the other team’s goalie by moving the ball to one side of the pool – all while floating on inner tubes. No skill level is required. Just come out and have some fun during free play hours from 8-10pm on January 25, February 1,8,15, March 28, and April 25 at the RAC indoor pool.
Trying your hand at the Southern Adventures climbing wall is a good way to challenge yourself and switch up your workout. Open from 4-9 Monday-Thursday, 12-3 Saturday and 5-8 Sunday, the certified Southern Adventures staff would love to help you get started. There are paths that range from beginner to expert and the RAC provides all the equipment you need. I climbed the wall for the first time last semester and I had a blast! For those less daring, our bouldering cave is a great activity that is always open.
The University Wellness Program puts on Wellness Week each semester to support and educate students on the seven dimensions of wellness – emotional, environmental, intellectual, occupational, physical, social and spiritual. Speakers will discuss such topics as sustainability and nutrition. Students can also learn more at the Live Well Fair in Russell Union on February 29th from 8am – 12:30 pm.
If you enjoy intramural sports, but are looking to up your game, Club Sports is the place to be! Come check out all the different options at the Club Sports fair on January 23 from 6-8pm at the RAC. Some of the teams include volleyball, MMA, tennis, cross-country, soccer and dance.
There is truly an activity for everyone at CRI no matter what your fitness level. We want to help you reach your New Year’s goals, so stop by the RAC today and try something new!
Hope to see you soon!
