During May Eastleigh College took part in ‘Keeping Active Week’, where staff and students took part in sporting activities such as Zumba and aerobics.
Aerobics saw staff members limber up to test their flexibility, muscular strength and cardio-vascular fitness. The workout demonstrated to the staff members that not only can this be an intense workout, but also a fun workout. Zumba proved to be the most popular class, with nine sessions organised throughout the week, including lunch time sessions and after work sessions.
It was easy to see why Zumba was the activity that attracted the most crowds, with its Latin-inspired dance work, easy to follow moves and the ability to leave the workout feeling exhilarated.
Another popular activity was the circuit class, with twenty-five members of staff taking part in the vigorous workout, which included exercises such as sit-ups, running on the spot, press-ups and cycling.
‘Keeping Active Week’ was very successful, and everyone who took part has asked for more exercises, such as the above, to be organised throughout the year.
The week highlighted Eastleigh's continued support to the Healthy FE: Keeping Active initiative.
