Stay Fit during the Summer

School is almost over and summer is just around the corner. But just because school is out for the summer, and all the knowledge that you learned over the year slowly disappears with the summer sun, that doesn’t mean that all of the progress that you have made should also disappear.

Whether you are staying in Statesboro or are going out into the world there are multiple ways to maintain your progress.

Staying in Statesboro:

HHJ-4CRI is up and running during the summer months and so the RAC is always an option. You can utilize the weight room, the basketball, the racquetball courts, and the indoor and outdoor pools.

      Group Fitness Classes – Available during the summer as well. There will be a Group           Fitness Schedule for both A and B term.

PT-2

      Personal Trainers – Available during the summer months if you want someone to help         you get started or keep you motivated.

      Summer Break Boot Camp – Just like Spring Break Boot Camp and Fall Fit Camp, this       will be offered Monday and Wednesday from 6-7pm in the Group Fitness Studio.

PT-13      Southern Adventures – Campus Cycle will be offered during the summer as well,                helping you stay fit by riding bikes around campus. Or utilize the Southern                          Adventures resources and equipment to go on outdoor adventure trips with your                friends.

      Wellness – Student Health 101 and the Wellness Center will be up and running during        the summer to help students with all aspects of health.

      Intramural Sports – Sand Volleyball, Summer Softball, and Summer Basketball will be         offered during the summer months.

      Tri-Eagle Challenge – A different type of triathlon for those who want to push their               boundaries. There will be a Tri-Eagle Challenge for both A and B term. Students have         the whole term to bike 100 miles using any of the three styles of stationary bikes in the       fitness center, or gain the miles through our Group Fitness Spin Classes. Students also       need to walk/run 26.2 miles using the treadmills or the indoor track. And finally,                   participants need to swim 5,000 yards in the indoor pool, either during open swim or         with a Group Fitness water aerobics class.

Not staying in Statesboro:

Unfortunately leaving Statesboro means you lose access to the RAC, but never fear because there are still other ways of staying in shape.

      Get a local gym membership for the summer months, most gyms will offer a discount         during the summer months.

      Begin a Couch to 5K or Couch to Marathon if you are ambitious, because you can run       anywhere.

No matter what you end up doing this summer, remember you can always be apart of CRI by following us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

Summertime at the RAC

To all of those who will be staying in Statesboro over the summer, the RAC will be all yours! The Statesboro student population will decrease dramatically within a week after graduation, but that just means there will be more opportunities for the RAC patrons who are still in town. This means having your choice of any of the cardio and weight lifting equipment, plenty of space between people in the sauna and no more searching for the last open parking spot at 7 p.m. on a weeknight!

It’s easy to convince yourself to skip the gym and hang out in the sun by the water, but you don’t need to choose between the two! There are numerous ways to stay active this summer while being outdoors. Sign up for a sea kayaking day trip with the Southern Adventures team! Never been kayaking before? No problem! The SA trip leaders will help you with anything you need and make sure you have a great time on this new adventure!

SA also has various skills clinics that range from teaching you and giving you tips on how to maintain your bike to providing you with the exhilarating experience of zip lining through the beautiful Georgia Southern pine forest! SA offers several activities that will keep your summer in Statesboro exciting, so try something new and don’t miss out!

Need an activity that will challenge you through the summer weeks to improve your physical fitness? Try out the Tri-Eagle Challenge and choose to complete it either during term A or term B. You will be challenged to cycle, walk/run and swim set distances during the term of your choice. Commit yourself and show off the results at the pool and beach!

For the sporty type, we are continuing Intramural Sports throughout the summer just for you! Register for summer basketball or softball in May and begin playing at the end of the month. You can also sign up for the sand volleyball tournament mid-June and play July 9 -11. If you’re not enrolled in more than four summer course hours, don’t worry! Just pay the RAC fees, and you will be eligible to participate in Intramural Sports!

Enjoy the RAC and all the benefits that come with staying in Statesboro for the summer!

Summer Fun at the RAC!

The semester is coming to an end, so you may be starting to look for some fun summer activities. Look no further! CRI has plenty of activities for you to choose from this summer.

Test your abilities by taking on the Tri-Eagle Challenge during summer-term A or B. In order to complete the challenge, participants must cycle 100 miles, walk or run 26.2 miles, and swim 2500 yards. Complete the challenge and win a prize.

Looking for a more laid back activity with friends, sign up for intramurals this summer! There will be three to choose from: basketball (Registration: May 7-23), softball (Registration May 7-23), and sand volleyball (Registration: Jun 18- Jul 3). Intramurals are a great way to stay active and have some fun with friends over the summer.

Going to the pool is probably the most common summer activity. At the RAC, we have an indoor pool, whirlpool, and an outdoor pool with a whirlpool. Play basketball and volleyball in the pool, or lounge in a chair to soak up the sun. Don’t forget your sunscreen!

Needing a little more adventure in your life? Southern Adventures will be offering a couple trips this summer: Kayaking (Saturday, June 9) and Canoeing (Saturday, July 14). If these trips don’t appeal to you, then plan your own. Southern Adventures offers rental equipment for an affordable price to students. Students can rent camping supplies, water sporting gear, and bikes. Resource books, maps, and videos are free for students to use.

Have a great summer!
