The circuit features upper and lower body exercises, core conditioning, and cardio training. Come in with your friends or on your own and check it out. The circuit is designed so that the user has options to choose from at each station and performs the chosen exercise for a certain length of time (such as 30 seconds) and then moves on to the next exercise. It’s a fun way to be active, strengthen the muscles, build endurance, and improve balance without doing the same exercise over and over again.

Functional Fitness Class on the Bangor Campus from 12:00 -12:45 PM in the Fitness Center
No Functional Fitness Class on Tuesday November 28, 2017.
Lori Googins, Coordinator of Student Life Wellness and Cultural Enrichment and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist will be teaching a Functional Fitness class on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12:00 – 12:45 in the fitness center. Functional fitness utilizes various muscle groups of both the upper body and lower body at the same time. It aids in the development of muscle movements we use in activities of daily living. It emphasizes core stability, balance, and coordination of movement which in turn can reduce your risk of injury and improve your quality of life. Participants will use their own body weight and/or dumbbells to strengthen and improve their functional capacity.
Pre-registration is required; register at the UMA Bangor Fitness Center. Please wear comfortable clothing, sneakers or cross-trainers, and bring a water bottle. This class is free for students, staff, and faculty; for public members you can try it out for $5.00 or purchase a $40 punch card that can be used for 10 classes. If you have any questions call Lori Googins, Coordinator Student Life Wellness and Cultural Enrichment at 207-262-7912 or email: email@example.com.
