Have you ever wanted to go work out in MRU’s recreational facilities, or even just go for a jog between classes, but didn’t have anyone to go with? Come check out the Gym Buddies program!
“The Gym Buddy program will help break down social and psychological barriers that may exist, so students feel safe and invited in accessing the Recreational Services with a friendly positive environment” explained Jon Heath-Smith, SOS Coordinator. He added that this is not a training program, so a variety of fitness levels are encouraged. “This is a social support network of volunteers, and clients working to achieve common health goals” he added.
MRU students interested in joining Gym Buddy program can contact Jon by email, telephone, or in person. Regular updates about planned activities will be posted on the SOS Facebook group – https://www.facebook.com/groups/SAMRUSOS/ and all Gym Buddies are encouraged to join the group to keep in touch and share their activities, strategies, and challenges.
