Spring break is 18 days away.  Homework is piling up as teachers prepare for a week of no classes (ugh!).  With all the work, it may be difficult to find time to exercise and focus on eating healthy, but if you put in a little extra work now, you will be grateful when your favorite jean shorts and bikini from last summer fit just as well as they did last summer (if not better!) this spring break.

Take advantage of the following Campus Recreation programs this spring to have fun while shaping up for a much needed spring break!

  1. Swim To Florida Swimming strengthens your core, arms and legs, and is one of the best cardio workouts, as the average swimmer burns around 500 cal/hour.  Grab your cap, goggles and towel and talk to one of the lifeguards about signing up for Swim to Florida.  One lap=one mile, and t-shirts are given to everyone who completes their goal of 592 laps to Citrus Springs, 655 laps to Groveland or 792 laps to Jupiter Florida.
  2. Rock Climb with Elon Outdoors – Join the Elon Outdoors on their March 10 trip to Pilot Mountain, where you will get the opportunity to rock climb outside.  Rock climbing for one hour can burn up to 650 calories, and strengthens your shoulder muscles, perfect for that halter bikini top or tank top!
  3. Rasta Yoga - Prepare your mind for the beach by taking this class on Friday March 2.  The class is focused on relaxation, fun and strengthening the mind, body and spirit.   Rasta yoga burns around 150 calories per hour, and helps keep the body stretched and in balance for cardio activities.
  4. Hire a Personal Trainer- Did you know that Elon offers personal trainers for $55 for 3 single-sessions or $120 for 6 sessions?  Get motivated with a certified trainer, and hit the gym for a guaranteed great workout!  And plan on being sore the next day!  The fitness center also offers group training sessions for two people, for $270/10 sessions, which comes up to just over $13 per person per session.
