Fall into Fitness
With the beginning of every school year comes fresh hopes, new passions, and a renewal of intentions. It’s the perfect time to establish or renew the habit of regular exercise, and UREC will give you prizes to help you get started. Just get your Group Fitness Instructor to sign your special Fall into Fitness card every time you take a class, and prizes will come your way at the end of the promotion.
The 31 in 31 Challenge
October has 31 days, and we know you can cover a mile for each of those days – whether it’s running, swimming, dancing, or taking a yoga class - track your steps and share your progress with UREC through Instagram or Twitter. Folks who complete the challenge get special recognition and the first place winner receives a prize.
Summer Solstice Sunrise Celebration
As the sun rises, energize your body, mind and spirit. Mark your calendars every year for June 21 at the Chess Plaza! Pre-dawn vegetarian breakfast will be available at 5:45 a.m. Sunrise Yoga will begin at 6:30 a.m.
Whether you’re a triathlon neophyte or expert, you will have a great time and be challenged at this indoor 60-minute event.
The Triathlon Express includes a 10-minute swim, 30 minutes on a stationary bike and a 20-minute treadmill run. Participants will be judged on who goes the farthest in each of the timed segments. With this format, first-timers can experience the challenge and joy of completing three different events in one, while experts can (no pun intended) put the pedal to the metal.
Even non-swimmers can walk halfway down the length of the pool and back to complete a lap. And since it all happens indoors, weather is not a factor in your training.
