If you haven’t already noticed, Campus Recreation has been hard at work filming and producing a brand new video series called Find Your Fit. The series features Amanda Lawler, an Illinois State student who enjoys exercising but struggles to find the motivation and the time with her busy schedule.

Lawler has been kind enough to let Campus Recreation’s marketing team follow her around with cameras while she attends group fitness classes, runs 5Ks, and tries the climbing wall for the first time. She has been extremely gracious to us, and we hope, if you haven’t yet, you’ll take some time to watch a little bit of her journey.

We also hope that, if you’re like Lawler and you’ve been interested in trying group fitness classes or even working out in one of our weight rooms, that you’ll give it a shot. We know trying a new class or entering a new space can be intimidating, but whether it’s Zumba or our climbing wall, no expertise or previous experience is ever required to participate, have fun, and enjoy the benefits of trying something new.
