Jumping for June Health

6.18.2013
June is a great time of year.  The weather is warm, but not as hot as it can get in the later summer months.  There are tons of delicious fruits and vegetables in season.  And best of all, it's summer break!  Use this time to do something for you!  Make a move today!

Try going for a walk, jog, or run outside.  Find a local trail, go around your neighborhood, or explore a new area with a friend.  Want to keep track of how far you go?  There are a bunch of apps for that, including MapMyFitness, Nike+, Runkeeper, and even an app to run from Zombies-- really! 



Living near campus?  The Rec Center is open and happy to have you there.  There are also group fitness classes to enjoy, including zumba, yoga, and step!  Stop in and get energized!

And remember, fill up on the great number of in season fruits and veggies.  In season means they are lower in price and more available to you!  

Listed are just SOME of the fruits and vegetables available this season.  Eat well!
