Today I wanted to focus a bit more on the students at Santa Fe College who are trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle while away from home. I’ve noticed that some students at Santa Fe compare themselves and their experiences to those of students at the University of Florida.
We need to set one thing straight before we continue: The students at Santa Fe are just as smart, beautiful and well-rounded as the students at the University of Florida.
Santa Fe College offers its students a fully equipped fitness center that meets the needs of all students. The fitness center is wheelchair accessible and also includes a multi-gym for students with disabilities.
An interesting feature to the center is a twice-a-week yoga class that’s free of charge! The yoga class is offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the gym. Check with the athletic department if you’re unsure if the time and place has changed.
Yoga is a fitness routine that relaxes the mind and the body. And if you’re a college student, then there isn’t a day that goes by that you don’t need a bit of relaxation. Santa Fe students should take advantage of these classes and the fitness center before graduating from the college. A visit to the center a day could keep the doctor away. (Let’s be honest, college students can’t really afford a healthcare plan anyway.)
Most colleges and universities offer a fitness center for students to use free of charge with a student i.d. card. However, if your school does not have one, there is a website that offers different yoga poses and advice for people in all levels of fitness.
The take-home note here is that there are opportunities available for students to workout for free. Whether it’s the student paper, a bulletin or the school Facebook page always try to check these areas for fitness events or updates.
