California Baptist University’s Recreation Center started the 2016 spring semester off by promoting group exercise programs available to students, faculty and staff, including the TRX suspension training class.
“TRX (or Total Resistance Exercise) Suspension Training is designed to strengthen its participants and connect the CBU community,” said Ashlynne Slovek, sophomore kinesiology major and TRX instructor.
Slovek described her 45-minute group-training sessions as dynamic, fun and interactive.
“We feed off each other’s energy; that’s what makes group exercises motivating,” Slovek said. “Our goal is to make each participant be stronger and feel stronger.”
Sheraya Davis, sophomore statistics major who is training to be a group-exercise instructor, said the workout is designed to utilize the entire body with variations available to tailor the workout.
“They are able to adjust to their desired level of intensity by shifting weight and alternating angles,” Davis said.
Group Exercise TRX Suspension Training is held on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays with session schedules available at the CBU Rec Center and online at calbaptist.edu/recreationcenter.
Alternative group exercise options include cycling, deep stretch and Pi-Yo, a combination of pilates and yoga. These classes are available throughout the week.
