Given our active student body at UNH, many students come back for fall semester motivated to start off the semester with a new workout routine. Many can find the gym to be overwhelming and the chaos of back to school season to be too much. The beginning of the semester is the perfect time to try a new approach to physical activity, and September just happens to be national yoga month! So toss on some comfy clothes, grab a water bottle and head to a class right on campus!

The first week of classes are done and the semester is about to kick into full gear. While seeing old friends, making new ones and studying for classes are all key parts of being at school, it is also important to remember to stay active. While gym memberships at home might cost upwards of $50 a month; here at UNH all students have access to the Hamel Rec Center.

In the world of exercise, trends come and go. There is boot camp, zumba, pilates and so much more. The most recent type of workout to hit the exercise world is TRX. The name sounds a little intimidating, but it is a workout that will provide you with strength, flexibility and balance. TRX is made up of nylon straps that you secure onto any steady surface and which provides you with a full body workout.

No matter how dedicated you are to staying physically active, sometimes going to the gym or lacing up your shoes for a run can feel like a chore.  The best way I have found to look forward to every workout and avoid the crowds at the gym is to take advantage of the group fitness classes UNH Campus Recreation has to offer.

Like to dance? Looking to get in shape or change up your cardio workout? Ever heard of Zumba? Zumba is an energetic dance class where participants are able to let loose and have fun!  I took a Zumba class a few days ago after a two-year hiatus of zumba-ing and I honestly forgot how much fun it was! The dance moves are relatively simple but fast paced to get your heartbeat going. Most of the music is top-40’s hits that you can sing along to if you want to make the most of the experience. It’s a one-hour class of dancing to the beat in a room of 30+ people doing the same thing.

It’s tough to stay in shape. As college students, we are committed to our education and clubs, and we want to spare some time for fun too.  Even when we find the spare minutes to fit in some physical activity, it’s incredibly easy to come up with any excuse not to work out. It’s cold, it’s early, it’s raining, my knee hurts… Well, you know. The list goes on. But what if your workout was actually fun, and you were surrounded by your friends the whole time? That’s one reason why group fitness classes are superbly beneficial in helping busy people stay in shape.
