Did you know there are other places around the Gainesville area where you can take advantage of healthy options?

  • Students of the University of Florida and Santa Fe College can take advantage of their on-campus gyms and fitness classes.
  • Most apartment complexes have a 24-hour gym so you can get fit on your schedule. 
  • Walk to class or work if the distance is reasonable 
  • Take the stairs whenever possible...here is an excerpt from an article on NYTimes.com....
Stair climbing is twice as taxing as brisk walking on the level and 50 percent harder than walking up a steep incline or lifting weights. Peak exertion is attained much faster when climbing stairs than walking, which is why nearly everyone huffs and puffs going upstairs, at least until their “second wind” kicks in after a few flights. Because stairs are so taxing, only the very young at heart should attempt to charge up long flights. But at a slow, steady pace, stairs can be a health plus for the rest of us. Begin modestly with a flight or two, and then add more as you improve. Take the stairs whenever you can; if you have a long way to go, walk part way, and then switch to an elevator. Use the railing for balance and security, and don’t try the stairs after a heavy meal or if you feel unwell. Even at a slow pace, you’ll burn calories two to three times faster climbing stairs than walking briskly on the level
