Spring Semester 2013 Preview

Now that you’re back on campus, UIS Rec Sports has many exciting events coming up. TRAC hours of operation are Monday through Friday 6 a.m. – 11 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday Noon to 11 p.m.

“This spring we have a jam-packed schedule full of new events and group exercises created to help you get the most out of your spring semester,” said Caley Fisher, UIS Rec Sports graduate assistant.

The new group exercise schedule features three new classes and several new instructors. Classes added this semester include Body Conditioning, Dance of Broadway, and Barre Technique.

Don’t forget about the Outdoor Adventures Series, which starts with a Ski/Snowboard trip to Wisconsin on February 8-10. Learn how to sign up and about other planned trips on the Rec Sports website.

On Friday, February 22 Rec Sports will be hosting the annual National Recreational Sports and Fitness day. The day will focus on the positive benefits of fitness activities and wellness programs for everyone on campus. Throughout that day at TRAC, there will be a variety of events.

Wacky Wednesdays and Fundamental Fridays are back and happening weekly throughout the spring semester.

The University Fitness Challenge is still underway and it is not too late to join. If you haven't heard about it, this program is designed to promote living a healthier lifestyle. Participants who sign up for the program will choose a shirt from another university and exercise the actual mileage it would take to travel from UIS to their chosen college or university.
