Alternative workout options and sport clubs
Putting variety into your wellness routine is very important to your health. It gives you confidence as well as alternative workout options.
“It kind of spruces things up and makes them more exciting,” says Amanda Jillson, assistant director of recreational sports.
Jillson recommends playing a pickup game of basketball, participating in racquetball or enjoying the outdoors by participating in sport clubs like Club Baseball at UIS.
“It’s a good time and keeps you active. It helps you get to know other people,” said Jim Johnson, a junior chemistry major on the club baseball team.
Club Baseball has 17 members this year and on average plays 15 conference games a year, with more added as the season goes along. They play other colleges and university club teams from around the state and beyond.
The team has a four game home series coming up and invites people to come watch their games at Hobbs Park in Springfield.
