You know there are benefits to physical activity. Even if you don’t consider yourself physically active, just moving more can prevent injury, add years to your life, improve your relationships, and it feels good!
The weather may not be what you’d like it to be, but there are hundreds of ways to just move more.
Take advantage of some of the events taking place in February.
Tupper Trek – February 24, noon to 1 p.m.
The Tupper Building gives us our own 15-floor mountain to climb. Whether you make it up 5 floors or all 15, join your Dal colleagues in taking the stairs to improved health. Challenge yourself or challenge your co-workers to try the Tupper Trek.
Skating Party – February 28, 11:40 a.m. to 1 p.m.
This could be your last chance to skate at the Dal Arena. Bring your co-workers to an invigorating way to spend a lunchtime. Free admittance with a Dal ID. Don’t forget your helmet if you plan to skate, or come anyway and watch others skate.
Dalplex offers a wide range of programs and classes, whether you’re a member or not. Just walking over for a tour counts as moving more! February’s membership specials:
- Buy 1 year and receive 3 months of Cardio and Climbing
- Buy 6 months and receive 1 month of Cardio and Climbing
