“Exercise is Medicine” is part of a national initiative by the American College of Sports Medicine. The goal is to promote physical activity and a healthy lifestyle to help prevent many chronic diseases.
The event will feature a variety of fitness assessments and activities on the second floor of the Student Services building. Activities will include:
- Chair massages by students in Tri-C’s Massotherapy program
- A bicep strength test using the Polar TriFit machine
- The VibeCage, which utilizes whole body vibration to enhance physical therapy and sports performance
- Cardiovascular assessments, including blood pressure and target heart rate calculations
- VO2 Max testing demonstration, which measures a subject’s maximal oxygen consumption during a graded exercise test (an indicator of aerobic fitness level)
The event is sponsored by the College’s Sport and Exercise Studies program, which prepares students for careers as personal trainers, fitness specialists and other health-related professions.
