Happy Spring Forward Patriots!
Fitness & Wellness
Spring ’19 Power Meet
Rise to the challenge by testing your strength against other Patriots, and most importantly: Yourself! ALL are welcome regardless of whether you’ve been training all year or just want to give yourself new goals!
Pink Gloves Boxing Demos
Mason does not have a de-stress room, but we’ve got something better! Our LAST Pink Gloves Boxing Demo will help you punch out that stress and become stronger after one class!
Hiring – Fitness Instructors
Become part of Mason Recreation by motivating and inspiring others through fitness! Learn how to teach Pink Gloves Boxing or Zumba and you can get paid while working out with others!
Boot Camp Workshops
Our fitness boot camps emphasize functional training while intertwined with high intensity intervals. Learn the fundamental movements of a Boot Camp Class and be prepared to workout!
Pitch In On The Piedmont
The Piedmont Trail is located on Mason’s Sci-Tech campus, but its impact stretches beyond Mason’s boundaries. You can help the sustainability of the Trail and The EDGE in one day!
2019 Mason Open
This isn’t a professional tournament, it’s a fun tournament with competition, prizes and comradery! We want to see our students succeed, so all proceeds from the Mason Open will go toward the Student Development Fund!
Are your brackets busted? Because our own basketball playoffs turned into quite the show! Check out our Flickr Album to see all the action and MADNESS you missed!
Intramural Spring Season 1 Champions
Mason Intramural Spring Season 2 has already begun, yet it’s always good to reminisce on great moments.
Get Out There!
Outdoor Adventures has packed April full with trips every weekend for you weekend warriors and even some mid-week! From rock climbing to packrafting to overnight trips, but don’t forget about Wednesday Wanderings to change up your weekly routine!
Leave No Trace
Facility Feature: RAC Boxing Station
The second floor of the RAC is home to two punching bags where you can mix cardio and power into one workout! Not to mention a great place for Pink Gloves Boxing practice!
If you’re looking to join Mason Recreation’s Aquatics Team or just to boost certifications and experience, we offer Lifeguard, CPR/AED & First Aid Courses HERE!
De-Stress on the Quad
Before going into finals, stop by SUB1 on April 30th from 12p-2p to learn how to perform your best! Yoga, fitness demos and more are waiting for you!
Fitness Tip: Dumbbell Shoulder Press
Watch our longtime fitness instructor David show you how to breathe, press and find your target zones to turn those shoulders into boulders!
Well-Being Corner: Seated Stretching
Sitting is something we all do, yet lack of stability and movement efficiency take a toll. We cannot provide our best if we are tense, strained, or tired so try these stretches: hold for 5-10 seconds, relax and complete again.
Spring into Well-Being
This annual event celebrates the Mason community’s commitment to well-being. Its purpose is to inform and motivate our community to participate in Mason’s well-being university events that promote vitality, purpose, resilience, and engagement
