Check out upcoming fitness center classes and events, designed with you in mind to help you be active, get fit, and feel your best!

Daily stress, sleepless nights, regretful snacking habits, and limited time leave us all lagging sometimes. Numerous studies have shown that just 30 minutes of physical activity five days a week can help with all that—not to mention provide many other health benefits. While time these days is hard to come by, the James G. Mill Center for Health and Fitness is offering some incentives to help make it easier for you to start fitting in some of that much-needed you-time.  

Four Footed Friends 5K Run/Walk

The James G. Mill Center for Health and Fitness is happy to announce the conclusion of the 2016 Four Footed Friends 5K Run/Walk. The event was a major success, and the profits earned will be going to help the animals of the Four Footed Friends, located in Indiana. We had a great turnout this year, and it was heartwarming to see everyone come out and support the Four Footed Friends, and achieve great exercise while doing it. We would like to greatly thank all of the people who participated in the 2016 Four Footed Friends 5K Run/Walk. We would also like to thank our very generous sponsors who helped make the event possible, including the Four Footed Friends, RoadID, Wendy’s, S&T Bank, Fore Driving Range, the Co-Op Store, Pita Pit, Golden Star Theaters, Mohawk Lanes, Ironwood Grill, IUP ROTC, and Big League Haircuts. The overall winner and top male of the event was Lucas Weltz, finishing at a time of 19 minutes and 43 seconds. Our top female was Rebecca Alman, finishing at a time of 25 minutes and 25 seconds. Great job Lucas and Rebecca, as well as all of our participants! A picture of the event can be found on our Facebook page.

Each year, the James G. Mill Center for Health and Fitness 5K Run/Walk event becomes increasingly popular. We are excited to see the growth and how far the event has come over the past six years. The management teams of the James G. Mill Center for Health and Fitness are learning more and more each year of how to make this a successful event, as well as obtaining great ideas and advice from previous managers. This event has become a staple in the IUP community, as well as the surrounding communities in the essence of providing assistance to a nonprofit organization and promoting health and fitness. We would encourage and appreciate your participation in the 2017 5K Run/Walk, as we look to expand on the success of this event each year. Thank you again to the Four Footed Friends, our participants, sponsors, and volunteers who helped make this another successful event. We look forward to seeing you next year!

Amy Fiorentini Insanity

Held Mondays and Wednesdays beginning 
February 2 at 4:00 p.m.

This semester, beginning February 2, we would like to welcome a new class and instructor to the James G. Mill Center for Health and Fitness. Amy Fiorentini (pictured right) is a certified Insanity instructor who is looking for you and your friends to join her and get fit.

Insanity uses the concept of HIIT—High Intensity Interval Training. HIIT increases weight loss without losing muscle mass. It even keeps calories burning long after the workout is over! New rounds come out every two months, and modifications can always be made to accommodate all fitness levels. 

Bring a Friend Wednesdays

We are still offering Bring a Friend Wednesday!

On Wednesdays each week, members are invited to learn the benefits of exercising with a friend by bringing one guest with them to work out. Please be sure to check in at the front desk and have your guest sign in also. We hope this allows our members and potential members to realize the power found in numbers to make sticking with an exercise plan more enjoyable.
