    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.

    Bring a Friend Wednesdays

    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. 

    Amy Fiorentini Insanity

    Thursdays at 4:00 p.m.

    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.

    2018 5K Run/Walk

    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 seven 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 encourage and appreciate your participation in the 2018 5K Run/Walk, as we look to expand on the success of this event each year. Thank you again to the 80’s Retro Run/Walk, our participants, sponsors, and volunteers who helped make this another successful event. We look forward to seeing you next year!
