February programs help with fitness goals
As part of the university’s continuing effort to be American’s Healthiest Campus, the OSU-Tulsa Wellness Center is hosting several events in February to help students, faculty and staff reach their fitness goals.
“All of the programs that the OSU-Tulsa Wellness Center offers are designed to educate, as well all motivate everyone who participates,” said Jeremiah Watkins, wellness coordinator. “When you give people the right education and motivation, we believe that anyone who has the ability to make a goal, has the ability to achieve that goal.”
“How Low Can You Go” is a month-long weight loss challenge designed to push participants to lose weight through proper diet and exercise. Participants can pledge to lose 4-10 pounds and track their progress through weekly weigh-ins.
The OSU-Tulsa Indoor Unlimited Relay, which runs Feb. 6-27, is a cardio-based challenge that pushes teams of four to log the most miles on the treadmills, ellipticals, stationary bikes or row machines in the Wellness Center.
“The indoor relay helps develop a team’s determination, team work and consistency so that they may log the most miles,” said Watkins.
OSU-Tulsa will also begin offering Zumba classes every Tuesday and Thursday at 6 p.m. in the Tulsa Room, starting Feb. 14 and ending April 26.
Membership at the OSU-Tulsa Wellness Center is now free for all students, faculty and staff. Visit the Wellness Center website to start your membership. Contact Watkins at firstname.lastname@example.org or 918-594-8147 to register for any of the events.
