Looking for a new, creative way to get into shape for bathing suit season? How about aquacising?  Water fitness classes are available to all UNH students. These classes provide basic aerobic exercise in shallow or deep water, and are low impact but with the same intensity as a land-based aerobic class. This is great for people with knee or ankle problems and is a sure bet way to get you ready for bathing suit season. Each class is set to music and starts with a warm-up, proceeds into an aerobic segment, and ends with a cool-down accompanied with stretching exercises.

With even the basic nutritional knowledge, the thought of an eating contest might make you feel a little queasy. The idea of eating as many hotdogs as you can in a matter of minutes could almost give you a heart attack just thinking about it. Yet, right here on UNH campus there is one eating contest that actually takes a different approach. Annually, the Pan-Hellenic Sorority, Alpha Phi, holds their philanthropy event called “Eat Your Heart Out.” The event is designed with healthy foods in mind. The competition is a healthy eating contest between Greeks or any member in the UNH community.
