Fit Club offers students opportunities to get in shape
BY REBECCA BREAZEALE
The New Year is a time for resolutions. Some aspire to get a new job, others try to learn a new language and some want to get fit.
Thankfully, the Schoolcraft Fit Club is here to help with student health and fitness goals, whether it is to lose weight, get fit, eat right or to just feel better.
“Fit club is designed like any other club on campus, to bring together like-minded students who want to
get together and work out, get some guidance for their selves and have fun making friends,” said Patty Donohue Ebach, the fitness center manager. “Students will get a good work out and can set goals for their self.”
The club is run by students for students to create a welcoming, non-judgmental environment for people of all health and fitness levels.
“Living a healthy lifestyle is so important when you’re young. The eating and exercise habits you form now will last a lifetime and control both your future and current feelings, attitude and the drive to better yourself,” said Maggie Leins, a student leader for the Fit Club. “For me, being active and going to the gym is my happy place where I enjoy spending much of my time. Each day can bring something new to look forward to and a time to improve yourself. Once you get into a routine, living a healthy lifestyle becomes easy to maintain.”
Each meeting of fit club has different workouts and offers a complete, full-body workout. The club leaders offer advice on cardio, lifting and nutrition.
“It’s great to see students come together and learn different techniques to get fit or stay fit that are safe yet fun to do,” said student Krystina Stephian. “Fitness club helps motivate students to work out in a fun environment. Seeing the progress students make is an awesome feeling of accomplishment for not only the students, but the fitness center staff as well.”
Fit Club is held every Monday and Thursday from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the fitness center located inside the Physical Education building. For those interested in learning more about the Fit Club call to speak to a fitness center employee at 734-462-4348.
