Summer Fitness Programs

This summer, Campus Recreation is offering fitness programs exclusively for UMW employees: Total Body Workout and Lunchtime Yoga.

Each fitness program is 5 weeks long, meets twice a week, and costs $30 for the 5-week session. That’s 10 workouts! Can’t make a few of them? That’s okay! There’s no penalty for missing a few classes. We understand that it’s tough to commit to all 10 workouts. Some workouts are better than no workouts! Session 1 is May 20 – June 21. No class on Monday, May 27 in observation of Memorial Day.

Lunchtime Yoga: The lunchtime yoga class is a gentle, relaxing yoga class designed to give faculty and staff head space during busy workdays, as well as the energy needed to finish the day strong. Mats, blocks, straps, and instruction are provided.

Total Body Workout: Heat up your summer with two cardio-based total body workouts each week, led by a certified personal trainer. These workouts will use your body and circuit training to help you stay active.

Registration is open now! You can register and pay online or in person at the Fitness Center.

Robert Liebau

Robert E. Liebau, associate director of campus recreation, gave the presentation “To the Core—Embracing Personal Leadership Values” to the student session of the annual Virginia Athletic Trainers’ Association meeting in Richmond in January. Ian Rogol, UMW head athletic trainer, said Liebau’s talk was “extremely well received. Bob’s interaction with these students was amazing and all were extremely challenged to think about a topic many athletic training programs do not cover.”
