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, Staff, and Interns,
April is Exercise is Medicine month at LifeFit! One of the great joys in my role as director is hearing the wonderful stories about how exercise has been medicine for you! In the last month, I have heard stories about members being taken off of medications they have been taking for years, stories about members feeling more energetic and alive, and stories about members being in better shape than ever before.
Please keep sharing these wonderful stories and testimonials with us! Please let us know if you give us permission to post these stories on our Facebook page and/or website. We would really like to share how exercise has been medicine for our members at LifeFit.
Dr. Ayla Donlin
