4. Insanity

CHALLENGE YOURSELF! This 45-minute workout will have you sweating in just the warmup! It’s insanely tough, but the results are insanely amazing! With Insanity, you use your body to create the best body you can get. You work flat out in 3 to 5-minute blocks, and take breaks only long enough to gulp some air and get right back to work. It’s called Max Interval Training, because it keeps your body working at maximum capacity through your entire workout. Insanity is also offered at the Student Rec and is free! Classes are Mondays at 6:00 p.m., Thursdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 9:30 p.m. with Jen!  


5. Tai Chi

Use Tai Chi as a means of recharging and recovering your body from aches and pains through muscle control! Tai Cheng will offer better balance, flexibility, improved joint function, wider range of motion, less stiffness, and an overall feeling of natural energy and well being. Tai Chi is free to all VSU students every Monday and Wednesday from 8-8:30 p.m. in the University Center Magnolia Room. You can register here!
