Members of the University community will be able to get a massage, watch a tai chi demonstration and learn how to improve their golf game all under one roof on Thursday, March 3, in Dillon Gymnasium.
FitFest 2005 will bring together a wide variety of fitness and wellness activities in one place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This first FitFest, which is intended to become an annual event, will feature interactive experiences, demonstrations, free classes, mini-lectures, workshops and a campus walk and fun run.
It is being coordinated by the Department of Athletics, Physical Education and Recreation and co-sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Campus Life, the Office of Human Resources and the Frist Campus Center. Other campus groups scheduled to participate include: Dining Services; Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Student Services; the Office of Risk Management; the ombuds office; and University Health Services.
These campus offices and many off-campus agencies/organizations also will host tables and provide information on fitness and wellness.
The first 1,000 participants who register on that day will receive a free pedometer courtesy of the Department of Athletics, Physical Education and Recreation.
