Welcome back Warhawks! It is the start of a new year with new schedules. It is important to start the semester out strong and to get into a good routine right off that bat. Take a look at your schedule and find a time that will work for you to get to the gym. Scheduling a designated workout time from the start will encourage you to actually make it to the gym and also help you to keep going.
There are many reasons why it is important to the hit gym while you are a student:
One reason you should workout this semester is to prevent the “freshman 15”. It is common for students to gain weight while they are away at school. This can be due to poor eating habits they developed like eating late at night or having a lot of junk food. Working out can help you to keep the weight off and also stay healthy. Another reason to go to the gym this semester is because it is a social atmosphere. The gym is a great place to meet other students and make connections with your peers. It can also be fun to get away from classrooms and homework and to do something active at the gym with your friends. Additionally, working out can help to reduce stress. Many students experience stress from course work and busy schedules. Being active can help you to release any built-up stress and tension. A workout during the day may be just the thing you need to be able to relax after a busy day.
Above are just a few reasons why you should hit the gym this semester. There are many more reasons why working out can benefit you while you are at school. Starting to workout at the beginning of the semester can help you to create a healthy habit of being active on a regular basis for the rest of the year. Start this year strong Warhawks by getting your gym pass early and hitting the gym right away!
