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!
Happy Spring!!! I would like to use my Director’s Message this month to share how grateful I am for the past three years that we have had together. I remember running our pilot program in September of 2012 with 30 members. We have now grown our membership to ten times that size. We started out with three fitness option interns in Fall 2012, and we now host around a dozen interns each semester.
I appreciate the community we have formed here at the LifeFit Center. We are grateful to be in partnership with OLLI and PT@The Beach, two wonderful organizations that our members benefits from greatly.
I am thrilled with our Leadership Team: Heather Mazzei – Program & Intern Coordinator; Heidi Engler – Operations Coordinator; Emily Sopo – Marketing Coordinator; and Kaitlyn Jones – Saturday Lead. I am so impressed by the dedication and drive these women continue to show – they have a deep desire to make the LifeFit Center the best it can be.
As we close out this academic semester and look forward to Summer 2015 and then Fall 2015, I am honored to have been the founding director of the LifeFit Center @ The Beach and will continue to lead LifeFit with pride.
Ayla Donlin, Ed.D.
LifeFit Center Director
