Looking for a way to prevent the “Freshman 15”? Head on over to the Dixon Center, Cabrini’s Sports and Recreation Complex to keep those pounds off.
Facilities located in the Dixon Center include: a 25-yard competitive pool, three full-length basketball courts, a suspended jogging track, two squash courts, a dance/aerobic studio and the Nerney Fitness Center, which includes fitness equiptment and free-standing weights.
There are numerous aerobic classes available, as well as a full fitness center for all students.
“This year, we have all new, flat screen TVs, as well as the cardio theatre, in which students can plug their MP3 players into the treadmills and ellipticals. That way they are able to listen to the different TV stations while working out,” the Dixon Center’s administrative coordinator Amanda Eckenroad said.
In hopes of bringing more students out to the complex, Eckenroad said, “All of the classes offered here are great, they’re never intimidating or scary, just a lot of fun.”
A great way to meet people is to attend the different aerobic classes offered. Classes offered include: mat pilates, hatha yoga, kickboxing, water aerobics, water exercise, cardio interval, kundalini yoga, yogalates, mat/ball pilates, hatha/flow yoga, tai chi gentle yoga and body bar pilates.
Students are able to teach different classes as long as they are certified group instructors. For employment applications and more information on when the classes are held, you can check out the Dixon Center’s website at www.cabrini.edu/dixoncenter.
