O2 MAX Fitness: The Fitness Program for Students

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at UCSB chapter.

As a UCSB student, one is subjected to both a taxing academic schedule as well as a proficiently attractive student population. Due to this, many of us Isla Vista-ers strive to maintain a healthy lifestyle, but cannot seem to find the time between classes, studying, and homework…oh, and our social itinerary. However, I was recently approached by Karen Jashinsky, the owner of O2 MAX Fitness, with the opportunity to trial her amazing new fitness company’s Spring Break Tune Up program. O2 MAX Fitness is a company that creates personalized fitness programs and products specifically for students and busy people. Their Spring Break Tune Up was personalized based on when my spring break start date was. My O2 MAX Fitness coach suggested starting this workout 10 days prior to the beginning of my spring break and in conjunction to my existing workouts for best results. As a full-time student, involved in many organizations, clubs, and a sorority, I have an immensely busy schedule. However, O2 MAX Fitness made it easy to implement great strengthening and sculpting workouts that I can do at home in between classes and meetings. When I told my coach that some of the exercises weren’t working for me due to a prior injury, she immediately sent me a list of recommendations for different workouts and specialized stretches to help alleviate some of the pain my injury was causing me. With O2 MAX Fitness, I saw results in just 10 days; and, more importantly, I felt results. I feel stronger and now have a great workout regimen that fits easily into my schedule!

Rachel is a senior at UC Santa Barbara and studies Communication and Global Peace and Security. Rachel is from a small, beautiful town in southern California called Palos Verdes. However, Palos Verdes is just one of the many places Rachel has lived. Rachel spent her childhood moving and traveling all over the world, living in places such as Indianapolis, Indiana; Santiago, Chile; Vienna, Austria; and Orlando, Florida. Rachel has found her heart and her home in California, choosing to spend her college years in sunny Santa Barbara. However, Rachel continued her wanderlust when she studied abroad in Barcelona, Spain in Fall 2012. At UCSB, Rachel is an immensely dedicated and involved member of her sorority Kappa Kappa Gamma, where she held the positions of Panhellenic Delegate, Inter-Greek Counselor, Rho Gam, and a member of the Nominating Slate. Best Buddies, a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, is a passion of Rachel's, as she is their Social Media Coordinator as well as an active and proud member. As a member of the Lambda Pi Eta Communication Honors Society, Rachel is able to implement her prowess and affinity for communication and communication-related issues. When Rachel is not writing, participating in Kappa events, or volunteering, you can find her in the gym, on the soccer field, watching Modern Family, or cooking. Rachel's love for sports, food, and writing often times go hand-in-hand, as one may see in her weekly blogs. For the past two summers, Rachel has been freelance writing for the Los Angeles Times, and hopes to continue her career pursuit of journalism after she graduates. Rachel is elated to be a part of Her Campus's fabulous team and loves every moment of it!
