In honor of June's theme, Social Wellness, the entire month is "Bring a Buddy to the LFC Month!" Bring a friend to the LifeFit Center for a workout (their workout is free) and you and your friend will be entered to win free LFC T-shirts! Be sure to sign in with your friend at the Service Desk before your workout.
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.

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!
Hello LifeFit Members,
In honor of Heather Mazzei, our Programs & Intern Coordinator for the past 3 years, our leadership team has written a few words:
Heather has been such a vital part of the LifeFit Center. It has been amazing to watch her build and grow our programs and services and get to learn from her as a leader. Not only has Heather developed integral programs at the LFC; she has also supervised countless staff members and student interns who look to her for fitness expertise and career guidance.
Heather’s hilarious wit is equal to her empathy and caring for others. We are going to miss her energy and insights.
Heather’s passion for what she does is very apparent and inspires us to enjoy what we do. It is only fitting that Heather’s next step is to begin field hours as part of her Master’s in Social Work.
It has been such a pleasure to work alongside Heather. It is exciting to see her move on, as she will be doing great things.
Ayla Donlin, Ed.D.
LifeFit Center @ The Beach Director
