Wellness is in the air at the Student Activity Center!


Of the many wellness programs offered at Rec Sports and Wellness, let’s start with Group X.

Group Fitness classes are aerobic routines put to music so that individuals can be active together. Classes are varied and work on all parts of the body. Participants can choose from Body Blast, Zumba, Water Zumba, Abs and Back, Tai Chi, Yoga, Cycling, Capoeira, Luv ur Legs or Silver Sneakers. There’s truly something for everyone in Group X.

All classes are taught upstairs in rooms 225 or 228. Print this schedule or pick one up at the Control Desk. Remember to come in earlier in the day of your chosen, or at least one hour prior to class to get your Group X pass. Class size is limited so you will need a pass.

Let’s move on to Massage!

Recreational Sports and Wellness believes that therapeutic massage serves as a positive adjunct to the person’s will to actively participate in health and wellness activities.

Of the many benefits of a massage, both depression management and chronic pain reduction have been heavily researched. Massage is a fundamental part of your health. Expect your massage to be customized to your individual needs. Recreational Sports and Wellness’ Massage Services offers two comprehensive choices:

Pure Swedish. A Swedish massage uses five styles of long, flowing strokes to massage.  Swedish massage has shown to be helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and improving function in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee over a period of eight weeks.

Pure Deep Tissue. Deep tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity (such as athletes), and patients who have sustained physical injury. It is not uncommon for receivers of deep tissue massage to have their pain replaced with a new muscle ache for a day or two. Deep tissue work varies greatly.
