Anyone interested in racquetball (or squash)? Is there a separate site or bulletin board for people looking for matches?

Happy Valentine's Day Aztecs!

On this special day we want to remind you all of the importance of heart health. Taking care of your heart health is one key to living a healthy life. The U.S. Surgeon General recommends adults age 18-64 complete at least 150 minutes (2 hours and 30 minutes) of moderate-intensity physical activity a week or at least 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity physical activity a week.

A few options for cardio include paddle boarding at MBAC, bowling at Aztec Lanes, running on the ARC track or taking a cardio focused Group Fitness class like Cardio Dance, Cardio Kickboxing, Cycling, or Outdoor Bootcamp!

Take some time to practice Mindful Walking.

Mindful Walking is the act of becoming aware of your body and your surroundings while walking. Head to a location that makes you feel at ease and turn off your phone. Bring yourself into a meditative state-of-mind: make the effort to stop your mind from the thoughts of past and future, focus on your breathing, think about the experience of your body walking and take in your surroundings.

With finals right around the corner, we want to remind you guys to make sure you take care of yourself. We all know how stressful exam season can be, but it is so important to make sure you do not neglect yourself!

Self care is so much more than just 'taking a break'. Self care includes, but is not limited to, exercising, taking naps, eating healthy foods, and setting proper boundaries. It is up to you to decide what you consider self care.

Study hard Aztecs and good luck on finals!

Today we are featuring Group Fitness Instructor, Megan Hollyfield. Megan is currently teaching Yoga Sculpt and Cardio Dance in-person classes.

Megan began practicing yoga in 2012 as a form of physical therapy. Yet the more she practiced the physical postures; the more yoga became a refuge to work on her mental strength. Apparent that the mind-body connection is invaluable, she dove into a teacher training to deepen her own practice. Now a certified 200 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher, she hopes to share the benefits of focus, determination, and positivity to all her students.

After realizing she enjoyed teaching power, sculpt, and hot yoga classes, she started to branch out to teach other formats at the Aztec Recreation Center. Megan now teaches many additional formats such as Total Strength, Barre Blast, and Cardio Dance. Whenever you step into one of her classes whether to relax with yoga or workout, you will find a positive atmosphere and a class geared to challenging both the mind and the body.
