excersizing during finals poster

Final exams can be a stressful time, but we’ve got you covered! De-stress during finals week by attending one of our many group fitness classes: Zumba, Yoga, HIT, Spin, Pilates and more. If you can’t make it to the Student Recreation & Wellness Center (SRWC), but feel like spending time outdoors, you can always try something new, like PICKLEBALL – the most trending physical activity nowadays and is available across the city.

Why exercise? Well according to numerous articles, such as the Benefits of Physical Activity from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), exercise can...

  • Exercise may help alleviate the harmful effects of stress in the body, such as cortisol, by imitating the physiological effects of stress, found through reactions such as the fight or flight response.
  • Exercise can increase your serotonin levels, leading to an improved mood.
  • Exercise may enhance your quality of sleep.
  • Although exercise requires energy, it boosts overall energy levels throughout the day.
  • Exercise stimulates the production of your endorphins, neurotransmitters that promote beneficial moods, in turn reducing anxiety levels.

Why wait to experience the full benefits of exercise?! Visit the SRWC and enjoy one of the many FREE drop-in fitness classes available throughout the semester. Whether you work out solo or with your besties, these classes are full of fun all around! So, make sure to check out the SRWC fitness schedule on the SRWC GO app, or via the website at asirecreation.org.
