We’ve all heard the saying “college is the best time of your life.” You move away from home, meet new friends and experience freedom on a whole other level! It’s all true, but we also know that being a student can at times be stressful and overwhelming.
That is one of the many reasons why it is important to stay active on campus
. Studies have shown that regular exercise increases focus, relieves stress, improves memory retention and boosts your mood. We at CGI know it’s essential to keep MOVING in between class, extracurricular activities and social life.
With the spring semester in full swing and winter nearly behind us, it’s time to take a (short) break from the books, lace up those sneakers and crush new goals! Here are a few ways in which you can MOVE right now and also hold yourself and your friends accountable.
- Walk to campus or your next class
- Take the stairs
- Participate in a gym class
- Bike around campus
- Go for a swim at the fitness center
These are easy ways to stay active, but nothing builds muscle, self-esteem and school spirit like a fitness challenge that is uniquely your own with the common goal of crossing the finish line representing your university.
The Pittsburgh Campus Challenge presented by CGI
is the perfect way to promote campus wellness in a fun, inclusive way while building community and helping you to achieve your health and fitness goals! The program offers many benefits including a custom shirt, exclusive training run and everyone’s favorite… a student discount!
Whether you’re a seasoned runner or marathon newbie, the Campus Challenge is a great way to commit yourself to a new goal and show school pride all at the same time. Go grab your best friend, roomie, or the classmate you just met and join us at the 2019 DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon weekend of events!
