The first couple of weeks back on campus are always a whirlwind. Moving back to campus, seeing friends, and finding your groove can be difficult and it takes some time to get used to. Now that we are almost a month into classes, things are starting to settle down. Every school year I make a new goal for myself to try something new around campus. Being from California, I love to be active and try new adventurous workouts. Because of this, my goal for this year is to become more physically active and take full advantage of the different fitness classes DePauw has to offer. Working out can be intimidating if you are like me and have no idea how to use anything but the elliptical or treadmill. But here at DePauw we are really lucky to have such great facilities and a wide variety of workout classes that any student can try. There are classes for everyone including, Boot Camp, Indoor Cycling, Yoga, Barre and Zumba. These classes are great because they are taught by students and local people from the Greencastle community. Last year I took my first Boot Camp class and I really didn’t know what to expect. But after taking this first class I was hooked. Not only was it a great workout, it was also a fun activity I could do with my friends. This year I am going to try as many classes as I can because I know that after I graduate working out will not be as easy as walking over to Lilly and jumping in on a class. Lastly keep in mind that fitness is not about perfection, it is about working towards healthier habits that can help you do all the things that you want to do. With this in mind, DePauw makes reaching your fitness goal fun and easy because of all the different workout options.
