Wellness Center Membership

Wellness Center Membership


We call it a wellness center because there’s
a health clinic, there is a fitness aspect to it, there’s a nutrition service, we’ve
got everything for you that you need! The wellness center is just a big part of
like a stress reliever and like a break from classes and studying and stuff like that. I think it has a huge impact as far as like
being able to come and physically exert yourself and you know, get some exercise in. Or the mental clarity of just being able to
go run for a while or just between intramurals and other activities, I mean, you meet so many
friends and it’s just such a great way to meet people. Um, I use the wellness center because I value
health and fitness and so I come here and I utilize some of the machines upstairs, like
the treadmills and the elipticals, and we also have classes here, like insanity, spinning
and all of that kind of stuff. You feel proud of yourself when you finish. Because you are like, I just did that, that
was crazy, it was insane! I think one of the myths about the wellness
center is that it is just all of these meat head guys on the weight floor, you know. There are some girls in here that they put most
guys to shame. You see all kinds of people using the wellness
center. I mean there is a little kid that we saw from
the time he was in the stroller to, I mean, now he is running around the track with his mom and
dad. And then, ah, every Saturday or Sunday I see
like a dad and his son come in here and play basketball together and there is another, another little family that they come in here together and use the rock wall and they climb together. You see older residents that come in here
that get their daily workout in and kind of socialize and talk with all of the staff. Between that and, you know, the college students, I mean, you see everybody in here. I think a lot of people are intimidated to
come here and work out because they think there are so many people and that they are
going to get judged if they come here. But, I feel like that is not a reality, because
if you are going to try and work on your fitness, nobody is really going to judge you. They are just going to be like, good for you
for coming here!
