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,
This month, we will take time to honor exercise as a form of medicine as part of the Exercise is Medicine on Campus Initiative (EIMOC)! Come celebrate with us on Wednesday, October 21st! We are hosting an Open House to celebrate Long Beach State being recognized as a Gold Level EIMOC Institution. We will also celebrate LifeFit’s 4th Year of Operation!!!
At the Open House, you will hear all about what our campus is doing to promote exercise as medicine. The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the American Medical Association (AMA) started the Exercise is Medicine initiative in 2007 to promote the scientifically proven benefits of physical activity and make it a standard in the U.S. healthcare system.
We hope that you are already experiencing exercise as medicine at the LifeFit Center. In fact, we would love to hear your story. If you are willing to share a testimonial about how exercise has been medicine for you, please do one of the following:
If you would like your testimonial to remain anonymous, please indicate as such. Thank you for helping us promote exercise as medicine on campus and in the community!
