As Spring Break approaches, Mercer students are looking to lose the extra pounds inevitably gained over the holidays. But finding the motivation and time to work out can be a real challenge. In response to these obstacles, Quadworks is hosting Four Days of Fit the week before Spring break.

Four Days of Fit will be held starting Monday, Feb. 29 and run through Thursday, March 3. Each day will feature a new activity led by either a Mercer student or faculty member. In addition to a variety of interactive and energizing exercises, the event will have giveaways and prizes, as well as t-shirts for students who participate in at least three out of the four days.

On Monday, Four Days of Fit will kick off with a Body Fit class. This class utilizes body weight in order to gain strength and endurance. Each class will be thirty minutes long, and three sessions will be offered. There will also be a water bottle give away for those who attend a session. Body Fit will take place on IM court 3 from 6-7:30 p.m.

On Tuesday, there will be an obstacle course challenge in Cruz Plaza if the weather holds. If it’s raining, the course will be moved indoors to IM court 3. The top three finishers of the obstacle course will win a fit bit. There will also be a smoothie give away. The obstacle course will be open from 3-6 p.m. for those who want to give it a try.

On Wednesday, Dr. Linda Hensel will share her knowledge of the martial arts and instruct two thirty-minute Tae Kwon Do classes from 3-4 p.m. Immediately following, Subin Park will lead a Zumba class from 4-6 p.m. The day’s events will be held in Cruz Plaza. If it rains, activities will be moved inside to IM court 3. There will also be a t-shirt give away on a first come, first serve basis.

On Thursday, Four Days of Fit will culminate with rock climbing, inflatables and yard games that will get your heart pumping. If the weather holds, these activities will be set up in Cruz Plaza from 3-6 p.m. If not, the event will be moved onto IM court 3.

Students who participate in at least three out of the four days will be able to pick up a t-shirt courtesy of QuadWorks on Friday at 10 a.m.

Carson Crowley, co-chair of Quadworks’ Leadership, Education, and Diversity (L.E.A.D) committee, is heading up the planning for the event. Crowley, who intends to begin Physical Therapy school next year, says that her passion for movement inspired her to take on the planning for Four Days of Fit.

“I want students to realize that exercising can be fun, and it doesn’t have to be done in the gym,” Crowley said. “It is all about getting out and moving.”

Crowley said that students who take the time out of their busy schedules will surely benefit from the activities offered by Quadworks the week before Spring break.

“It’s going to be awesome and well worth your time,” Crowley said. “Freebies, fun in the sun, and some last minute hang-out time with your friends who you might not see over Spring break!”
