Healthy Monday @ UR
Week #2: Move-It Monday
Physical activity is a great way to manage weight and stress! If you're looking for ways to stay active, check out the activities below. You can head to Goergen Athletic Center for the group fitness classes, self-led workouts, basketball, volleyball, swimming, and more. Even though the weather might not be perfect, you can keep active on campus by walking, running, cycling, playing Frisbee, or anything else that helps you be active.
- Outside: A suggested mile loop on campus is shown to the right. Following this map, you can run or walk a Monday mile at your own pace.
- Inside: in the event of inclement weather, you can also head indoors…to the indoor track at GAC to be specific. You can run or walk an indoor mile: all it takes is 8 laps around the track! Create Your Own: want to make your own Monday Mile route? Log on to Walkscore to map your route and mileage.
- Fitness classes @ GAC on Monday through Thursday evenings. Classes offered include Kardio Fusion, Iyengar Yoga, Yoga Flow, and Zumba, a Latin-inspired dance-fitness class. For more information and class times, see the schedule on the Goergen Athletic Center web site.
