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.

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!
Greetings LifeFit Members,
This month, I would like to share with you the mission and purpose of the LifeFit Center. Our mission at LifeFit is to cultivate community, promote education, and facilitate wellness.
Our purpose, like our mission, is also threefold. We are a health and fitness facility for folks age 49 and above both on campus and in the community. We are also an educational laboratory for the College of Health and Human Services and host academic classes, educate interns, and facilitate research. Finally, we offer outreach programs to our campus and community such as the Beach Community Wellness Program, which provides free fitness and nutrition programming to underserved populations in Long Beach.
We constantly strive to fulfill our mission and purpose, and we thank you for your continued support and advocacy. If you have a desire to be involved in any of our outreach programs, please let me know.
Ayla Donlin, Ed.D.
LifeFit Center @ The Beach Director
