Fit for Life-Health Sciences

The Fit for Life workshop targets community, faculty, staff and Kent State students in a supervised exercise setting.

This 60-minute class typically begins with a warm-up of stretching and calisthenics, followed by a choice of aerobics (walking, jogging, bicycling, aqua aerobics & more). Next, to strengthen muscle groups through the range of motion, is an anaerobic workout using light weights. Finally, you will cool-down through light stretching and relaxation exercises. 

Participants will also take part in a series of functional fitness tests both at the beginning and completion of the semester. These tests will include a standard lipid profile and a series of exercise tests aimed at evaluating flexibility, aerobic endurance and anaerobic strength. Participants will also receive a MOVband, a fitness tracker, to help increase awareness of your daily activity level and to inspire the healthy decision to keep moving.
