Refugio (Kuki) Martinez
We are excited to have Refugio (aka Kuki) as our Team Member of the Month! She joins us as an Exercise Science Intern as she completes her Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology. Kuki volunteered to start her internship early and is currently assisting with Strength for Living 3 times a week. Kuki is eager to learn new things and take on more responsibilities. Her enthusiasm and positive energy make the workouts and service desk fun for everyone around her. You can catch Kuki at the Service Desk on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Thanks for being a part of the LifeFit family, Kuki!

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.
