We at the LifeFit Center are making a commitment to uphold and promote these guiding principles of the Exercise is Medicine on Campus (EIMC) Program.
• Exercise and physical activity are important to health and the prevention and treatment of many chronic diseases.
• More should be done in university and college settings to encourage students to establish lifelong exercise and physical activity habits that have the power to significantly improve the quality of students’ lives.
• Support the American College of Sports Medicine’s (ACSM’s) efforts to bring a greater focus on exercise and physical activity in university and college settings.
Greetings LifeFit Center @ The Beach!!!
December is Healthy Holidays Month!
As I write this message, it is two days before Thanksgiving. I am amazed at how quickly the Holiday Season has come! I would like to take the opportunity in my Director’s Message for this month to express my gratitude to all of the wonderful members and fantastic staff and interns we have at the LifeFit Center! I have spent some time reflecting back on our first year of operation at the LifeFit Center @ The Beach, and I am so pleased with the solid foundation we have set during our first year.
Thank you LifeFit Center members!!! Thank you for your dedication and your lifelong commitment to health and fitness. We appreciate that you have chosen the LifeFit Center as your community, and we hope that you find not only your physical needs met, but your mental, social, and spiritual needs as well. We desire to provide you with a holistic experience of wellness. As Jay Kimiecik writes in the Intrinsic Exerciser: Discovering the Joy of Exercise, “The most powerful inner exercise experience is when you inergize [energy that comes from the inside out] exercise with your mental, social, and spiritual needs simultaneously”. We hope that you can find ways to connect moving your body with meeting your mental, social, and spiritual needs. Please let us know how we can better support you in this way. J
Thank you LifeFit Center Staff & Interns!!! I am so grateful for the good work that you do! You are all so dedicated to doing the very best work that you can do each time you are in the LifeFit Center, and for that, I thank you! You are committed to providing the best service to our members, and you are dedicated to making the LifeFit Center a warm, welcoming community!
