After moving into a dorm, settling into college life, and getting accustomed to tons of new classes, it can be difficult to find the motivation to stick to a fitness regimen. College life WILL get crazy busy, which can make saving time to keep up with a healthy lifestyle seem unattainable. Good thing Ohio University offers many on campus workout groups for all students, freshmen and 5th year seniors alike! Try out one of the groups below & find your fit this semester!

It's the question no one wants to answer...
"When was the last time you worked out?". I remember as a freshmen in college, spending hours a day trying to stay on top of all my school work but never finding the time to work on my health. Aka, going to the gym. For some it's weeks since they've been to the gym and for some it's months but regardless for a lot of students it's not as frequent as it should be.
Whether the problem is time management, laziness or lack of exercise knowledge, we all are guilty of slacking on the gym at some point. However, what most of these students don't know is there are organizations to help them get into a more active lifestyle. Joining fitness clubs and organizations can help students to become more accountable for taking care of their health, as well as gaining confidence and becoming a more motivated individual.
Tracking your fitness and activity has become increasingly popular over recent years. The technology has kept improving and making wearable bands more accurate and responsive to all our health needs.
For me, getting a fitness tracker is one of the best decisions I've ever made when it comes to my health and fitness. It honestly changed my lifestyle and made me more aware of my daily routine. Before I got a fitness tracker, I didn't really know how much I was actively moving and really wanted to stay on top of my fitness levels.
Since buying one, I can see the difference in my health and my level of activity. I believe that getting a fitness tracker can accelerate your health and provide fitness insights. Below are five ways that having a Fitbit has helped me achieve my fitness goals.
