intake helps you live a more healthy life. What
many students never think about is how
exercise can affect other areas in your life. For
example, exercise improves memory by
growing more brain cells. So in theory if you
exercise more you will have a better results
while studying for all those finals! In addition
to your improved memory your sleep will most
likely improve. Exercise regulates your body
allowing for a regular sleeping pattern. People
who have irregular sleep patterns are usually
prescribed exercise as a way to help them sleep.
Finally exercise improves your energy level over
all. Many people don’t work out because they
can’t get over the mental block of, “It’s going to
be exhausting.” Although exercise isn’t as easy
as sitting on the couch it also doesn’t have to
be that hard. Most students don’t realize that
the suggested amount of exercise is only 120
minutes a week at a moderate level. Even this

sleep patterns. How would

CLASSES FOR THE NINERS!
Get involved with your school and your body! Here are just a few of the classes that
UNCC offers. We are promoting a fun and encouraging exercise experience! Take a look:

EXERCISE SHOULD BE FUN!
We always talk about how exercise
is essential, but wouldn’t more people
exercise if they actually had fun with it?
Here at UNCC we want to exercise to be
based around an enjoyable environment.
Studies have shown that exercise that
includes imagery attacks more people than
exercise without imagery. Starting in the
fall of 2016 we will have all of the classes
to the right and more, which include some
form of imagery.
The world of exercise is constantly
changing and UNCC wants to change
with it. We pride ourselves with having
updated equipment, classes, and exercise
plans. Stop by for a tour of our facilities
and we’ll help you decide what classes
would be best for you. Go niners!
