About the Program

The FIND YOUR FIT program has been developed under the umbrella of the American College of Sports Medicine's (ACSM) initiative Exercise is Medicine On Campus (EIM-OC). Exercise is Medicine believes that with the help of physical activity, optimal health is achievable and will help with the prevention and treatment of medical conditions. Universities across the United States have partnered up with the initiative to help campuses build communities with a strong love for health and fitness.

When you get back to campus, we can actually visit with you in person and help with the following:

  • Equipment orientation
    • Demonstrations of proper form while using equipment (e.g, weight machines, medicine balls, TRX, barbells, etc)
  • An exercise buddy
    • Ask us to workout with you for emotional support! (e.g take a group exercise class, run through beginner level exercises)
  • Assistance with particular exercises
    • Creating beginner level circuits
    • Discuss the importance and differences of particular types of physical fitness (e.g, cardiorespiratory endurance, strength training, flexibility training)
  • Fitness Measurements
    • Evaluate your current fitness level through assessments and testing (e.g, skinfold and circumference measurements and cardiovascular fitness testing)

Our Exercise Assistants are current students pursuing their Bachelors degree in Exercise Science, Health Sciences and Physical Education. Their responses are guided by certified Personal Trainers.
