Saturday Morning @ the Umphrey Center for LU Alumni

Date: June 21, 2014
Time: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Category: Events
Location: Sheila Umphrey Recreational Sports Center
Details: Lamar University Alumni... come workout with us on Saturday, June 21 at Saturday Morning @ the Umphrey Center!

Last year at Saturday Morning @ the Umphrey Center, a great group of alumni had an exciting time climbing the rock wall. However, we also heard from a number of alumni who said they would have loved to get together to work out and have a smoothie with us but rock wall climbing was a little too daring for them.

Soooo… this year we are expanding the workout opportunities so there will be something for everyone! Alumni attending Saturday Morning @ the Umphrey Center on June 21 will have access to all of the cardio equipment and weights, the indoor walking/running track and other Umphrey Center workout opportunities. New 2014 alumnus Paul Rizk will lead a yoga session just for alumni… this is your opportunity to try yoga if you have never attended a yoga class or to get a good yoga workout if you are a yoga “pro”.

And for those who want to try the rock wall, LU’s Outdoor Pursuits staff will conduct a bouldering session. What is bouldering? It is a form of rock climbing that is performed without the use of ropes or harnesses where climbers go no higher than 12ft on the rock wall. Perfect for those who would like to climb but don’t particularly like heights.

All participants will also get a smoothie from the Umphrey Center Café. Come on out and join us for a fun and healthy morning!
