Please join us this Friday, April 3 at 12 noon for our first live virtual workout - 45 minute HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) with Beth. Please join the live workout early to ensure that everything is working. Don't forget a water bottle, mat or large towel, some hand weights (if you have them) and be sure to wear comfortable clothing. Also, you will be able to hear the instructor but she cannot hear you. You can communicate by typing a message to her in the App and she will be posting a written version of the workout if you want to read it. Deaf and hard of hearing - click here.

Virtual Fun Run and Walk (3.1miles)

Join us on Saturday, April 11 to get out, get moving and stay active during this "new normal" time. We want to encourage you to complete a 3.1 mile fun run, walk or bike ride in your home or outside. Once you complete your 3.1 miles, simply comment on our "How was your fun run today?" post located on our Facebook page @HarperCampusRec on Saturday, April 11. Once you complete your activity and comment on the post you will be entered into a drawing to win a Fit Bit Inspire Fitness Tracker.
