Orientations are a way to familiarize yourself with the gym in a way that makes it less intimidating. Here are our four orientation options that guide you through each part of the Dottie Dorion Fitness Center at the Student Wellness Complex.
Let us show you around to acquaint you to the facility, our programs, and where all of the equipment is. You will not work out during this 20-30 minute session… but feel free to ask plenty of questions.
We will spend about an hour teaching you how to work out safely and efficiently. You will learn how to operate the cardio machines, how to stretch properly, how to do our 10-piece Nautilus One weight machine circuit, and also a couple practical exercises you can do at home. Prepare to work out during this session.
C. Playground Training: Let us take the intimidation out of the ‘Playground’.
We will spend about 45 minutes teaching you 10 functional training exercises utilizing the Synergy 360 (Playground) and the monkey bar/Crossprey Fit area. Additionally, we will show you how to operate the Jacobs Ladder, Woodway Curve treadmill, UBE, and the Octane’s adjustable dumbbells. Prepare to work out during this session.
This 60 minute session is recommended for individuals who have been on a consistent progressive workout for at least 6 months. We will spend about an hour creating a custom workout for you using a combo of free weights, plate loaded machines, functional exercises, and machines. Prepare to workout.
