The College of Marin (COM) Kinesiology and Athletics Department faculty and staff are promoting an active start to the fall 2017 semester. New this term, COM students and employees have access to a completely renovated fitness center at the Kentfield Campus.
Working with consultants in the fitness industry to decide how to use the space most efficiently, faculty and staff designed the center on the concept of functional fitness, with everything in the fitness center new and state-of-the-art.
Functional fitness means activities, workouts, and equipment all designed to support the functional movements of real life, regardless of the individual’s fitness level.
A new Kentfield Fitness Center app has also been launched. “College of Marin Fitness CTR,” and the app is available through the Apple and Android App Stores. It’s designed to help students and employees set goals and challenges, track and record workouts, post activity, and share on social media.
COM also serves students in its Adapted Physical Education (PE) program, and part of the renovation includes relocation to a classroom custom-designed for it with upgraded equipment. Almost $100,000 in specialized equipment purchases will be made this year.
Kentfield Fitness Center also will provide employees access to the Center with extended hours, for just $30 per semester to offset the cost.
“College of Marin is fortunate to have talented instructors and the facilities that allow us to encourage and support employees in living healthy lifestyles,” said Superintendent/President Dr. David Wain Coon. “Bringing faculty and staff together through physical activity will hopefully be another step to increase health and happiness, but to also deepen connections to the broader campus community.”
