Homecoming 2015 From An Insiders Perspective!

Homecoming is seen to be very eventful for High Schools, Colleges, Universities and even there communities. Something I’ve noticed to be the most exciting is the Football games. All the events that take place during the week are mostly for the students, but the Football game can involve friends and family as well.

Homecoming is a great experience for a number of reasons! Who, What, Where, When and Why you ask?!

  1. All Rowan students
  2. Homecoming Events
  3. Events take place on Campus daily
  4. Yearly in Mid-October, 12th-17th 2015
  5. To get involved on campus and have a good time

All homecoming events are active and participate friendly for anyone who is interested. Greek life,  student center, sports, all kinds of clubs, and so much more! Each year Rowan puts together a number of events and tallies up the points at the end of the week to give out trophies for the winners! Everyone has a fair shot at winning and bringing everything they’ve got to the competition. Homecoming is a fun filled week and is something I personally look forward to every year!

I am sure you are all wondering how this relates to Fitness??

Well you see, all of these events involve getting up and having a good time! Rowan’s very own Rec Center staff is also involved with Homecoming and everything that it entails. Employee’s get a chance to have a little fun while doing what they love most! Even if you are not the person physically doing the event, you are surly standing on the sidelines cheering them on! Being involved and staying busy is one of the best things you could do while starting a fitness journey! A plus is that it is also free! Just join a team and get out there and have some fun!


Tight On Time? Zumba At Home!

Let your body take the lead and put your mind to rest for a few minutes! 

I’ll be the first to admit that a few weeks ago I may not have even clicked on this video myself but that’s changed. I have found the power within to put on my sneakers and get a good workout in even if it’s only for 30 minutes a day. Getting started will be the hardest part but once you do, it will feel amazing! Any workout is better than none so get up and get going!

Zumba may seem hard or frustrating at first, but keep going. It is so much fun and really a great workout. Get connected  with Zumba! These ladies committed and found results from Zumba in no time. Zumba is all over the world, and is offered in all types of ways. You can attend a class at your local gym, find videos on the internet, and they even have DVDs you can buy! There are so many different routines that go along with Zumba which makes it entertaining and something new to try each time.

Grab a friend or family member and have them Zumba with you! Having someone with you is a great form of motivation. You can keep each other at a fair pace and it will make the workout that much more enjoyable. Sometimes it is easier to focus on what someone else is doing instead of what you’re doing while working out. It doesn’t cause as much stress and leaves room for conversation after a successful workout.

I try to do a small workout each day and working out at home makes this possible. It’s FREE and can be done in the time I would usually take to nap, have a snack or watch TV in between my busy schedule. Of course some days are more challenging than others but making time is so important for a fitness journey. Time management is key! Try to stay organized and stick with a daily plan so that you can get everything accomplished by a reasonable hour. Allowing yourself to have “me” time and unwind with a warm bath before bed.

“Nothing that’s worthwhile is ever easy. Remember that.”

Don’t forget how hard it is to accomplish goals and change YOU for the better. Just believe and work at it everyday. In due time, you will realize it was all worth it!
