Transcript useJ^an Remember the first time von visited the I niversitj of Houston and were in awe at the facilities, nameTv the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center, known to students as simply the "rec"? OK. maybe not, but I was! I was fascinated by the recreation center on m\ first visit, to I of II. I was ready to work out right there on the spot. We've all heard of the dreaded Freshman 15, meaning you are expected to gain fifteen pounds during your freshman year of college. That is most likely due to the combination of Stressful classwork, nobody telling you what to do or when to do it, and large meal plans. After indulging in the delicious cheeseburgers and homemade meals prepared in the cafeteria, you promise yourself "Lin going to the rec right after this meal." Prett) soon it becomes TU go tomorrow, or maybe the da\ after." It's easj to put on those pounds but difficult to lose them. If you believe the above statement, I have a newsflash for you — the hard part is motivating yourself to lose weight. The action of working out is not hard. It could actually be fun thanks to the various acti\ i- ties offered 1>\ Campus Rec, short for the name of the recreational department on campus. When some people think of the word "workout." the first things that come to mind are heavy weigbtlifting and miles of running on a speeding treadmill with an intimidating personal trainer on the side screaming demeaning statements in your ear. Truth is. Campus Rec has the weigbtlifting and treadmills to use at your own discretion or pace, and the trainers are there to serve you and help you w ilb whichever part of your body you want to focus on. They will do it with a smile on their face. Aside from the weight machines and treadmills, the recreation center offers more than 100 different pieces of equipment. If you want to get your cardiovascular system in shape without running in place, the rec has an indoor track slightly smaller than one you might see around a high school football field. Then, there are the traditional ellipticals and Stair Masters. For sports fanatics the rec features five basketball courts, countless racquetball courts, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, diving area, leisure pool with slides, indoor soccer arena, and a rockclimbing wall that is the largest in the state of Texas. After a hard workout, students rati relax and unwind in the whirlpool in the aquatics center. Still not enough? If you're looking for a more active, fun way to burn off unwanted calories, Campus Rec offers numerous aerobic and dance classes. Everything from step to yoga to even bellydanc- ing is taught by professionally certified teachers, some of whom are students. One of them is Shireen Amira, a senior history major and a belIv dancing instructor. "i think it gives the customers more options on different ways to work out. [f you don't want to lift weights, if you don't want to do cardio, then there are other options," Amira said about the various activities patrons have to choose from. "There're dance classes. There Ye a bunch of classes that can also get your tummy toned." "The setup is pretty good, \ou\e got various activities if you know what you want to do and where to go to get the stuff you need," said Corey Burney, junior kinesiology major and regular patron at the rec. "Usualry when I go up there, I try to play a couple of games of basketball and get in the weight room." So whether you want to play a friendly game of badminton, an intense pickup basketball game, or kill time and pounds by taking a dance class, the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center is your one-stop building for all your fitness needs.
