Get in shape for the spring with TRAC!

The spring semester is the perfect time to get involved with recreation at UIS and to get in shape for the upcoming warm weather months!

“One great program we have to help you reach your goals is a program offered through rec sports called GTX,” said Amanda Jillson, assistant director of fitness and instructional programs. “It’s a 12-week weight management program that helps you commit to yourself, puts you through a challenge and also helps you change and see results.”

The GTX program meets five days a week, and you have to be able to commit to attending three times a week to go through the program. It meets three different times: 6 a.m. 12 p.m. and 5 p.m.

“There are a couple of spots still available, so contact me or stop into TRAC to register, Jillson said.

Other great ways to stay in shape are through TRAC’s group exercise classes that are in session now. The classes are drop-in, and schedules are available online or in TRAC.

Through intramural programs, you can get involved with other students and stay in shape, as well as through using TRAC informally.

“We offer free equipment instruction, so if you’re unsure on how to use the equipment, we can show you how to get started,” Jillson said.
