Fat asses no longer tolerated
There are still a few days for students at Western to enjoy
free access to Western Sports and Recreation facilities as
a part of the fourth annual Summer Active Campaign, said Sue
Garcia, co-ordinator for the event.
The event is presented in conjunction with Active Ontario
and Health Canada, Garcia said. “They encourage people
to do stuff, so the Western facilities open up for two weeks.”
Anyone, including students, will have the opportunity to use
the weight and cardio rooms, along with various drop-in classes,
aerobics and use of the swimming pool, she explained.
Participants in the program will also be able to enter a draw
that will include prizes from Hawaiian Tropic, products from
The BookStore, memberships to Western Sports and Recreation
and gift certificates, she added.
Garcia also emphasized the facilities are open to all and
the program ends on June 13.
