Tips to "spring" into fitness

The birds are chirping and the sun is shining over the UIS campus and that can only mean one thing, spring is officially here!

Spring is an excellent time to get serious about fitness, because it’s 3 months after most people make their New Year’s resolutions and 3 months before the start of summer.

“It’s a perfect time to jump start and spring into fitness,” said Amanda Jillson, assistant director of Recreational Sports.

Jillson encourages people to go for a jog outdoors, take a power walk, or use campus benches to do lunges, squats and dips.

“Our campus is very beautiful this time of year. The university staff does a excellent job on making it beautiful,” said Jillson.

Recreational Sports is also offering several intramural programs outdoors this spring. For more information visit

Jillson reminds you that on those rainy spring days, TRAC is still the perfect place to workout. The facility features a variety of exercise equipment, an indoor track, along with a gym. Membership is open to students, faculty, and staff, along with eligible alumni members.
