Tips on how to avoid the flu this year!

The flu season will quickly be upon us.  Here are some helpful tips on how to keep the chances of you contacting the seasonal flu low:
  1. Wash your hands often.
  2. Work out! This will boost your immune system.
  3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
  4. Try to avoid close contact with sick people. Also, keep a healthy household. Wipe down and sanitize commonly-touched surfaces.
  5. Get enough sleep!
  6. Cover your nose and mouth preferably with a tissue or your sleeve when you cough or sneeze.
Reduce stress. Stress can suppress your immune system, so keeping your stress levels low will help lower your chances of getting sick

November Fitness Challenge

The start of the holiday season doesn’t have to mean weight gain.  Here at the SAC it means testing your fitness level. Why? Because who doesn’t like a little challenge every now and again. You can test and retest as many times as you want throughout the month.
Find a fitness staff member to administer each test:

Tire Flip - how many times can you flip the 250 lb tire in 60 seconds
Weighted Sled - how quickly can you push a sled (men 180 lbs, women 90 lbs) 40 yards down and back?
Treadwall Climb - How long can you keep the wall going (medium speed)
Assault Bike - how quickly can you burn 20 calories
