REDUCE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT AT SW RC...........................................
Your workout can create clean energy! Ten PrecorAdaptive
Motion Trainers and Ellipticals like the one pictured to the I f :-
right have been installed at Southwest Recreation Center. ,
These machines incorporate technology that allows kinetic
energy generated during exercise to be converted into CO
electricity.The machines are attached to a grid and generator e .-
which supply power to the building's air conditioning system.
Increase the resistance and you can not only intensify your
strength training, but you could also generate up to twice
as much electricity.
The University of Florida is the first university to utilize this
exercise equipment as a means of energy conservation.
For more information about these machines, please contact
Pam Hightower at PamH @ recsports.ufl.edu.

STAY MOTIVATED TO EXERCISE ........................................


Train With Someone Else
Knowing that someone else is going to meet you at the
gym will make you more likely to show up. Find an exercise
buddy or group of people that have similar exercise goals.
Attend a group fitness class and experience the support of
an instructor and fellow participants. You may also consider
hiring a personal trainer who can tailor a program specific to
your needs, inspire you to train harder and be there to keep
you on track.

Find ExercisesYou Enjoy
There are unlimited ways to improve muscular strength,
flexibility and aerobic capacity. List the types of physical
activities you enjoy doing and incorporate them into your
exercise program. Not only does this make exercising more
interesting but you will work different muscle groups in a
variety of ways.


Keep A Fitness Journal
Plan a six week exercise program and track each exercise
session and improvements. Do not forget to address
setbacks and why they occurred in order to prevent them
from recurring in the future. The journal will always remind
you of your hard work and progress.

Reward Yourself!
For each milestone reward yourself with a new pair of gym
shorts, your favorite dessert or whatever you deserve!
Celebrate your successes!

Focus On Small Milestones
Setting smaller objectives along the way increases the
likelihood of attaining your overarching goal. Meeting
each milestone will prove your hard work is paying off and
encourage you to continue.


B O S U IN F O R M A T IO N ................................................................................................................................................................


What Can BOSU Do ForYou?
* Challenge your balance during cardiovascular, strength,
stabilization, flexibility and sports-specific training.
* Train the lower body to react quickly and efficiently.
* Add variations of traditional upper body and core exercises
to build muscular strength and endurance.


Why Is This Important?
Balance and body equilibrium are keys to effective movement
and sports performance.
Training with the BOSU can develop muscles to effectively
function simultaneously, improving the body's ability to feel
movement and sense joint position.

RECREATIONAL SWIMMING

Recreational swimming is a great way to relax while
enjoying an excellent full body workout. Visit the O'CONNELL
CENTER POOL located inside the Stephen C. O'Connell Center
on the lower level between Gates 2 and 3, or come with
your friends and soak in the sun at the outdoor FLORIDA
POOL located behind the Student Recreation & Fitness
Center. The Florida Pool water is heated to approximately
84 F during the cooler months, promoting year-round
outdoor swimming. When air temperatures are predicted
to drop below 45F, the Florida Pool will close. Aquatics staff
monitor air and water temperature, wind chill temperature
and wind speed to determine when to close the pool. For
cancellation and other information, please visit the Aquatics
page at recsports.ufl.edu.

SPOTLIGHT ON MARTIAL ARTS.............

The SPORT CLUBS program has several martial arts clubs to choose from. For more information on martial arts clubs and the
other 34 clubs offered by Sport Clubs, please visit the Sport Clubs page at recsports.ufl.edu.


Improving the mind and body through swordsmanship is the focus of Kendo, a traditional Japanese martial art.


Cuong Nhu
Originally founded in 1971 by Master Ngo Dong, this
Vietnamese martial art emphasizes self-defense, self-
confidence and improving mental attitude. CUONG NHU
combines the hard-style blocks, punches and kicks of
traditional Japanese karate with the softer, more circular
movements of Aikido, Wing Chun, Kung Fu and Vovinam
(another Vietnamese martial art).

Tae Kwon Do
TAE KWON Do is a popular martial art known especially for its
spinning head-high kicks.Though distinctly Korean, italso has
roots in Chinese Karate and Kung Fu. Practiced by 20 million
people worldwide,Tae Kwon Do has the distinction of being
an Olympic Sport.The UFTae Kwon Do club integrates many
styles ofTae Kwon Do, including kicking, punching, blocking,
self-defense and sparring techniques. There is also a focus
on connecting the mind and body through flexibility, speed
and cardiovascular stamina. Both beginners and advanced
students are welcome. If interested, active club members
may compete at local and national tournaments.

Judo
JUDO, meaning "gentle way," is a Japanese art of self-
defense and a sport with Olympic recognition. The UF
Judo Club welcomes men and women of all levels from
beginner to black belt. While they are keen to attract those
with previous Judo experience, participating in the club is
an ideal place to learn the basics of Judo. The club has a
beginner's practice dedicated to teaching the basics to new
students and advanced practices that focus on competition
Judo and techniques. UF Judo hosts two tournaments each
year. The club offers many opportunities to make friends,
get involved, gain confidence and get fit.

Kendo
The primary goal of KENDO is to improve oneself through the
study of the sword. Kendo, which is based upon All Japan
Kendo Federation Rules & Terminology, also has a strong
sporting aspect with annual college tournaments avidly
followed by more than 30 universities across the states.
Kendo is often considered the philosophical/sporting aspect
of Japanese swordsmanship.
