I am writing this with a great sense of joy. This week is my last week of classes, meaning that as soon as I hand in my final paper this Friday, I will have finished my first year as a masters student.
I’m not sure about you, but now that things are wrapping up and summer is approaching, I think it’s time to revisit my old new years resolutions. I’m just going to say out right that I did a horrible job at meeting any of my resolutions this year. So, as our school year comes to an end, I wanted to try this resolution thing again. Version 2.0, if you will.
In today’s post, I will be visiting two places on campus that can help us get a fresh start. Let’s go!
1. The Athletic Centre’s Personal Training and Nutrition Counseling
Two years ago, I injured my knee and required some physical therapy. While I was getting treatment at our campus’ sports medicine clinic, my therapist recommended that I do more exercises to help build up my knee strength. That was when I started doing personal training with the trainers at the Atheletic Centre. I know that personal training and nutrition counseling sounds really intimidating. Fortunately, they ask you what kind of trainer you want, and I got one who was really nice, not at all like that drill sergeant you’re imagining. You don’t have to commit to getting trained for a length of time – once you get your assessment done and your trainer set outs a plan for you, you can take what you’ve learned and keep going by yourself!
2. Hart House‘s many classes
Now that classes are wrapping, it’s time to learn something new. I recently started doing photography and am planning on taking some photography classes this summer. There are also a million other classes (okay, maybe not that much), from film-making, to theatre, to dance. I’ve also done some drop-in fitness classes over the summer, doing things like Nia (which is a bit like Zumba).
Now that everything is wrapping up, what resolutions do you want to re-tackle? Share in the comments below!
