New to fitness?
Programs are open to all fitness levels. Physical activity improves your physical and mental health. Even small amounts of physical activity are good, and more is better. Participating in physical activity is very safe for MOST people. However, some people should check with their doctor before they start becoming more physically active. For more information, visit the the Get Active Questionnaire websites for their online resources:
Campus Recreation is encouraging everyone to stay active and practice self-care during this time; whether it's on-demand yoga in your living room, tossing a disc around in the backyard with your family or roommate, or taking a stroll around your block. Aiming to sit less this semester and set a goal to get 30 minutes of moderate physical activity every day will help you be successful this semester.
General advice for becoming more active
Increase your physical activity gradually so that you have a positive experience. Build physical activities that you enjoy into your day (e.g., take a walk, ride your bike) and reduce your sedentary behavior (e.g., prolonged sitting).
Welcome back to Movement Mondays with Campus Recreation! We are excited to launch bi-weekly videos to help you take a study break!
Follow along with us every other Monday for 5 to 15 minutes to get moving and de-stress. You can expect to see anything from workouts to dance breaks, to short sessions on mindfulness.
If you have a background in mindfulness or movement and would like to help lead a video(s), please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information regarding volunteering.
