These classes are free to all Ohio State Mansfield and North Central State College students, faculty and staff. All you need to do is show up with your campus ID.

Circuit - Instructor: Alex Fronk, MPH
Circuit Training incorporates various aspects of fitness such as cardiovascular and muscular endurance, agility, and core strength. Equipment such as resistance bands and medicine balls are used to perform muscular endurance exercises, while cardiovascular health and agility are improved through plyometric exercises. Music, friends, and a variety of exercises make this Circuit Training class a fun way to stay active.

Strength - Instructor: Alex Fronk, MPH
Resistance training is crucial for healthy movement and body composition. The Strength Training class is a mix between learning and practicing major resistance exercises such as the squat, deadlift, bench, and military press. Each class focuses on one of these major exercises. The first half of class is typically spent learning exercise, while the second half of class is spent practicing the movement. Participants will be coached on form, and will have the opportunity to learn how to spot each other. This class takes place in the newly renovated Campus Rec Center weight room, giving participants access to high quality equipment for their strength training.

Yoga - Instructor: Carol Brown RYT 200
A Hatha yoga class encompasses both basic postures and breathing techniques of yoga to build strength and flexibility, combined with a flow of dynamic poses, linking movements with breath, to stimulate blood flow, healthy functioning of glands and organs, and to calm and relax the mind. Mix it up with gentle practice of holding postures for a little longer, to target the connective tissues of the joints working the pelvis, hips and lower spine. Top it off with restful postures to relieve fatigue, stress & promote an overall sense of well-being. Classes will be conducted using props such as blocks, straps, chairs & bolsters to support the body.
