As we near the end of fall semester and are getting ready to enter a new year, the Student Recreation and Wellness Center (SRWC) has much to be grateful for in 2021.

Adapting Fitness Routines in a Crisis

A difficult time for many of us occurred in March 2020 when the novel coronavirus first hit America and lockdown began. Then, adjusting to online schooling became a tedious and tiring task. In addition, if you are anything like me, the toughest transition throughout this time has been the inability to workout at a commercial gym.

Diversity and Inclusion

Comfort comes from understanding and feeling capable of doing exercise. Self-efficacy and feelings of mastery for exercise technique and form are essential to feeling comfortable at the gym, and no matter who you are or what your background is, everyone must start somewhere.
