The assistant director of campus recreation Michael Warren started the campaign. He said he hopes it will help promote and maintain healthy lifestyles for the people who visit the Rec Center.
Warren said this campaign is not about teaching people how to be healthy, but what being healthy can do for your life.
Warren said the campaign was started to impact the new faces at the Rec Center.
“There’s always an increase in traffic after the new year mostly because of people making their New Year’s resolutions,” Warren said. “We are hoping that we can help curb the drop off that traditionally happens in February.”
Warren said the motivational posters they create for each campaign are very popular. He said people often approach him and ask if they can take a poster home after they take them down.
Junior Maggie Drummond said one of her New Year’s resolutions was to start working out more.
Drummond said she is going to try to maintain her New Year’s resolution and enjoys all the resources the Rec has to offer.
The Rec Center is constantly updating its resources for students and members. This semester, the building has gained new equipment in the weight room, installed a new set of cycles for the cycle studio and refinished the gym flooring.
