Cold bringing you down?


1.  Grab a pair of skates and hit the ice!

Bryant students are always looking for ways to get off campus. Why not take the 5 minute drive to the Smithfield Municipal Ice Rink! They offer public skating Sundays, Tuesdays & Fridays from 12pm-2pm for a total cost of $8.

Thinking about asking someone out on a date but don’t know where to go? Head over to Kennedy Plaza in Providence for public skating. Wednesday is College Night—only $6 a person!

2.  Hit the slopes!

Snowboarding, skiing, and snowshoeing are all great ways to stay active in the winter! Bryant’s Ski & Snowboard Club goes to a different mountain every weekend, and did I mention lift tickets are priced at a college discount! Look out for their table in the Roto.

3.  Indoor rock climbing

Rock Spot Climbing in Lincoln is a great workout with day passes costing $24. It’s a fun way to get a workout and you won’t have to wait in line for a treadmill!

4.  Group Exercise

Staying active is always better with a buddy. Why not join a group workout session at the Chase Wellness Center. Classes began this week, schedules are available at the front desk. They offer classes in spinning, abs, butts & guts and much more!

5.  Have a snowball fight! Go out and play

Sometimes we forget that college students can still have fun. Grab a sled or a snowball, get outside and get moving.

6.  Pop in a workout dvd or purchase some workout equipment for your suite

Can’t stomach the cold? No need to leave your dorm room. Rent or buy a fun workout dvd to share with your roomies. OR just put on a fun playlist and dance!

7.  Create an intramural team!

Winter sports being offered are indoor volleyball, 5 v 5 basketball, and floor hockey.

8.  Take a few laps in the pool

The Chase Wellness Center has open swim hours daily.

9.  Walk it out

Enjoy the fresh air and the company of those you haven’t seen in a while! 

10. Yoga or Pilates

The benefits of yoga and Pilates are endless. It increases energy, relieves beginning of the semester stresses, and minimizes the chances of catching a cold. Check out Mediation in Motion with Noelle Harris, Thursdays at 3:30 in the IFC.
