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,
Happy Summer!!! We are enjoying our Summer schedule here at the LifeFit Center @ The Beach! I am using my Director’s Message for July to invite you to try out our INTRINITY® classes. We have three classes each week: Tuesdays @ 4:45 pm and 5:30 pm and Thursdays @ 5:30 pm. You are more than welcome to try out a class to see how you like it and then decide if you would like to purchase a package of INTRINITY® sessions. If you would like to try a class (your first one is FREE), please either email or call me (email@example.com or 562-985-2005).
INTRINITY® classes are 45 minutes in duration and incorporate movements from Yoga, Pilates, Martial Arts, Tai Chi, and more. We work on strength and endurance, flexibility and balance, and coordination and agility. I became a Master Trainer for INTRINITY® in November and certified five of our LifeFit staff members in April. I have enjoyed working out on the INTRINITY® board since 2010, and have noticed differences in my fitness as a result (especially my flexibility and balance).
Please feel free to email or call me with any questions you have at all.
Dr. Ayla Donlin
