Thank you everyone who joined us for our Resistance Training Workshop on Wednesday, July 8th! Ulises and Adrian gave us some excellent tips on how to resistance train and build or maintain muscle mass. If you'd like to see what they presented, check out the presentation (below).
Strength 4 Living is a 16-week program, broken up into four 4-week phases. Each S4L cohort consists of 8-10 participants meeting 2 or 3 days per week for 75 minutes. Each session is a combination of circuit training and cardiovascular training. Pre-, mid-, and post-assessments help you track your progress. Each cohort is led by one of our qualified trainers.
The LifeFit Center is in partnership with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) on campus at LBSU. Together, OLLI and the LifeFit Center share the same passion for lifelong education, health, and wellness. OLLI is sponsored by the College of Health and Human Services. OLLI is a source of widely varied courses of interest to persons 50 years of age or older. For more information about OLLI, please click here.

You can find him and his positive attitude up at the Service Desk, personal training out on the fitness floor, or teaching Krank Fusion on Friday afternoons. Adrian is a hard worker and brings a lot of positivity to our team. We are thankful to have him! Be sure to catch him during the Resistance Training Workshop on Wednesday, July 8 @ 12 pm!

The LifeFit Center is now proud to say that it is officially an Exercise is Medicine on Campus facility.
We at the LifeFit Center are making a commitment to uphold and promote these guiding principles of the Exercise is Medicine on Campus (EIMC) Program.
• Exercise and physical activity are important to health and the prevention and treatment of many chronic diseases.
• More should be done in university and college settings to encourage students to establish lifelong exercise and physical activity habits that have the power to significantly improve the quality of students’ lives.
• Support the American College of Sports Medicine’s (ACSM’s) efforts to bring a greater focus on exercise and physical activity in university and college settings.
Greetings LifeFit Members!
Greetings LifeFit Members,
We are full in the swing of summer at LifeFit! I would like to use my July Director’s Message to welcome Emily Sopo to the LifeFit Leadership Team. Emily is a recent graduate of the Master of Science in Exercise Science program at CSULB!
Many of you have taken the Building Strength class with Emily on Thursdays at 10 am, so you know what a shining star she is. We are thrilled to have her as part of our team! Emily will serve in a full-time role on the Leadership Team and will oversee the marketing, internship, and program aspects of the LifeFit Center. Emily is a great fit for this position as she has a background in public relations and advertising.
If you have any questions or suggestions about our marketing or our programming (group fitness classes, personal training, or Strength for Living), Emily is the go-to person. Welcome to the Leadership Team, Emily!
Ayla Donlin, Ed.D.
