U of G Gets 'In Motion'

October 05, 2009 - Campus Bulletin

U of G will participate in "In Motion" this week, a regional campaign aimed at inspiring people to live more actively.

The University, City of Guelph, Guelph Community Health Centre, and the YMCA-YWCA of Guelph are all offering a variety of free "In Motion" activities until Oct. 9.

On campus, the campaign is being supported by the Health and Performance Centre, the President's Office, Athletics, the Child Care & Learning Centre, Occupational Health, and Student Health Service/Wellness Centre.

U of G events include a team pedometer challenge where teams of five people track their steps for a week, free fitness classes, a child care walk, corporate couch potato races and more.

There will be a free aquafit class from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday in the red pool at the Mitchell Athletics Centre.

Thursday there will be “Ultimate Frizz” on Johnston Green from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m.

Friday and Saturday the Athletics Centre will open its doors to the U of G and City of Guelph community. People can use the facilities and take fitness classes for free that day.

The In Motion campaign was formally launched in 2007 as a way of increasing awareness of the importance of physical activity in our daily lives.
