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 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,
Our theme for August is Outdoor Activities! We are going to take full advantage of this by hosting a Scavenger Hunt on Friday the 14th of August – join me! Because August is traditionally a hot month in Long Beach, please be sure to drink a lot of water and to wear sunscreen and protective clothing when you are outdoors.
As I am thinking about outdoor activities, I would really like to share an outreach program that the LifeFit Center has been offering the North Long Beach community called the Beach Community Wellness Program (BCWP). BCWP is a program in which CSULB faculty and students collaborate with the City of Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services to offer free fitness and nutrition programming to low-income families. The vision of BCWP is to Create a Healthier Community, One Citizen at a Time. The mission of BCWP is to provide innovative and collaborative wellness programming that empowers community members to improve levels of health and wellness, and to provide experiential and reflective leadership programming that empowers students to make career choices and to become community leaders.
I would like to invite you out to Houghton Park in North Long Beach where we host the programming. Starting in late September, we will meet on Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 am – 10 am. Please let me know if you are interested in volunteering to help with this program. As LifeFit members, you will be able to show folks of all ages that they are able to pursue an active lifestyle and Move More. Live Longer.
Dr. Ayla Donlin
