Re: "Keep fit, have fun and warm down" Dec. 3

To the Editor:

In response to Andy Gidwani's column, I'd like to commend Mr. Gidwani on promoting the positive benefits of pursuing a healthy, active lifestyle and recognizing Campus Recreation's role in assisting with this goal. I do, however, feel the column presents Campus Recreation negatively and I'd like to dispel any stereotypes which were articulated in the article.

A well-rounded fitness program includes a wide variety of activities, encompassing all fitness components – strength, flexibility and cardiovascular training. Campus Recreation's weight room is just one of several programs, services and facilities available to help members achieve their fitness goals. We offer weight and cardio training facilities, aquatics, squash and racquetball, drop-in recreation, aerobic classes, Personal Wellness services, sport instruction, dance and mind-body fitness classes and much more.

Our weight room is staffed by knowledgeable, certified instructors to assist members with proper technique and training questions and we offer personal training, program design and fitness appraisals and more through our Personal Wellness service. For members who want to strength train, but are looking for alternatives to our weight room, we offer Bodysculpt and MegaMuscle classes.

Should students have any questions about the services and programs available to them, I encourage them to visit Campus Recreation Membership Services and talk to one of our staff members.
